Hello Crawler Land!

Our 3rd gen Tacoma Tube Bumper is now in pre-production and we have begun gathering a list of interested customers!

Please click or tap here for full details and to get added to our email list:

From the bottom of the Big Sluice, Rubicon trail, to the top of Imogene Pass, Colorado, we have had this bumper on the trail and at many events this spring and summer and have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from fellow off-roaders.

If you are interested in something different and unique for your 2016 or newer Tacoma, then please click the "Notify when in stock" button on our website to have your email address added to our growing list of demand for this product!

As more information becomes available, we will send short & simple emails to keep everyone updated as we get closer to production which we anticipate will be this winter.

Here come some images from our website to whet your appetite and showcase what we'll be producing soon!

Notes for the final production piece:
  • Wider main tube to match factory fender flares, if necessary
  • Longer side tube length to accommodate tires smaller than shown, if necessary
  • Attachments for Fog/Driving lights
  • Anchor attachment(s) for winch clevis and/or d-ring shackles
  • Frame Brace will not restrict radiator or power steering cooler airflow

Additional info on our site so please check it out, thanks!

Can't wait! New to the scene, been eyeing this since it was fabbed up! Really is the best bumper I've seen for the 3rd gen market.

Hey Big Mike,
    On the site it lists that you will also be selling a bumper for the 84-88 pickups.  Is there a reason that this bumper will not fit an 82?  Been wanting a tube bumper for over a year now and would love to buy one from Marlin Crawler!

From TRevv in a separate post:

At this time Marline Crawler does not have anything in the works for a front bumper for the 1st Gen trucks.  I would subscribe to the newsletter on the website for any updates on that, and possibly check in next spring. 

Think that's my answer.  :usa:
