On this 2000 Toyota Tacoma we're going to review and install part number 31018. This western perfect match series rear step bumper. This is what our original bumper looks like on the vehicle, as you can see it has seen better days so we're going to replace the entire bumper with a new one. All right this is what our new bumper looks like once installed on our Tacoma. Of course first off you notice that's the exact same style bumper that was on there origanilly. Except minus all the ruffles. Everythng is going to be pretty much the same as the original bumper, again the tread on the top of the bumper is going to be the same shape, and also the tread pattern is going to be the same on top of that so it has a bumper capacity for towing if you use it for that. Comes complete with all new hardware needed to install your license plate. It also comes with a plug for the hole for the bumper if you ever put a hitch ball in there.
