I just ordered Marlins rear bumper for my 85 4Runner and am in need of a front winch bumper now. I really like FROR plate style bumper but am concerned how it would look against the tubular rear. Yeah yeah, I know I'm being  :stopit: worrying about asthestics, but it is a genuine concern. Thanks!

I saw a 4runner last weekend with the rear marlin and front fror and it looked sick

Heres my rig. I also welded on the 1/4" frame brace with nuts welded to the back. Very strong.

 :thumbs: Thanks for replying! It's encouraging to hear you thought it looked decent. Now my next delima is whether or not install a 2" body lift... cripes it never ends!

This is the exact bumper combo that I am going to get.  The FROR bumper looks very close to stock in style so it should look similar to the marlin rear with a stock front.  Personally I don't like the majority of front tube bumpers as they don't cover enough up.

 Those are my thoughts exactly!

  • HOW AN 84 SHOULD LOOK
I love this bumper, i get complimets about it all the time.

yeah that bumper does look pretty sweet, i just wish they weren't so much $$.

as for the rear tube bumper marlins is nice but i like the look (and i hate saying this on marlins board) :outtahere: of all pro's better but either way it's going to look good. The combo of the two bumpers and a set of  :turtle: sliders will match the rear for a tuff looking truck. :twocents:
