5 Best Tacoma Front Bumpers in the Market | BumperStock

Toyota’s have always been known for dependability. The Tacoma, “Taco” as their owners refer them to is the perfect starter truck for anyone.

It has been around since 1995, and over that time, the midsize, go-anywhere vehicle has undergone a total of three-generational changes. Newer models seem to come with an endless amount of options to help make your little “Taco” stand out.

Like with anything, however, there is always room for improvement. The one thing we can all agree on is that their bumpers had always left something to be desired.

For on-road use, stock bumpers are fine. But the second you step off the pavement, you need something that was made for the great outdoors.

Luckily, BumperStock has a wide selection of quality aftermarket Toyota Tacoma front bumpers for you to choose from. We understand that not everyone has or needs a big truck like an F350 or Ram 3500. Sometimes you need something smaller that will be more manageable out there on the trails.

Whatever your reason for getting a Tacoma is, we got your bumper needs covered. From low profile bumpers to something with a full grille guard, there is something for everyone on this list.

Steelcraft Fortis Front Bumper (2005-2015)

Not everyone wants or needs a big, in-your-face bumper. Some prefer a more laid-back, simple design. This is where the Steelcraft Fortis comes in.

It still offers some of the best protection of any aftermarket bumper out there thanks to its 6 gauge durable plate steel construction.

Additional lighting won't be a problem thanks to the double 3” square aux lights that can be mounted on each side, on top of the optional 20” light bar which is located right in the middle.

Keep in mind that the bumper is made from one piece of steel that is fully welded by some of the best craftsmen in the business. Strength and durability are something the company prides itself on and has done so since the very beginning.

Steelcraft HD Elevation

If you like being out in the woods more than out on the open road, a Steelcraft HD Elevation bumper is a must!

The integrated bull bar is one of the first things that stands out on this bumper series. It is much like a soldier raising their weapon in time of war.

Its tough, sharp angles look so good on the Taco, that you think it should have come from the factory that way! Add to that a free lightbar and you have a trail-ready, nearly bomb-proof truck.

Steelcraft Fortis (2016-2021)

The 3rd generation Tacoma is hands down one of the best-looking mid-size trucks out there. Toyota took some time and redesigned the entire exterior(and interior) to help bring it into the 21st century.

Following the classic Fortis design, Steelcraft made sure its popular low profile series fits in with the Taco’s design language perfectly.

Unlike stock bumpers, the Fortis increases the approach angle for those serious off-road enthusiasts. Moreover, the razor-sharp angles act as a great starting point for a skid plate, which helps protect your front end from incoming rock or tree-limb damage.

As usual, every Fortis series is made with some of the highest quality, 6gauge steel the world has to offer and is fully welded to an incredibly high standard. Steelcraft is so sure of this, that they are willing to give you a two-year warranty, whereas the competitions only give you one year.

Fab Fours Premium

Fab Fours has always been known for making some of the wildest bumpers designs out there. Luckily, the Fab Fours Premium series doesn’t disappoint.

No matter what angle you look at it from, it takes your Tacoma from a very respectable-looking truck to a wild, over-the-top machine! From the integrated headlight and grille protection to the 3-16” US steel construction, the Fab Fours Premium bumper is a true piece of modern engineering and design.

To make things even better, Fab Fours engineered the Premium series to accept a which up to 10,000 lbs., making sure your little Taco won't become a part of nature if you find yourself stuck in the middle of nowhere.

Fab Fours Vengeance

Rear bumpers are usually last on the list in terms of modifications. Sadly, not many people pay attention to the back of a truck, but it should be just as important.

After all, it’s what everyone will see when you leave them behind with your nimble little Tacoma. Just because the rear bumper may seem like an afterthought, doesn’t mean you should follow the trend.

Much like their front bumpers, the Vengeance is made from some of the highest quality US steel and is engineered to re-use the factory parking sensors. Additionally, your hitch receiver and wiring will stay in the same location for added functionality.
