Mobtown Offroad has their design completed and fabrication has started for a rear plate bumper for the 2nd gen Tacoma. We are making one right now so we can work out any little bugs that may come up so the photos here are what we think it’ll be in the end but there may be a minor amount of changes.
The key features of the bumper are:
Outer Shell: 3/16″ CNC Laser Cut and Formed Plate Steel
Shackle Points: 3/4″ CNC Plasma Cut, pass through the bumper and wrapped around 2-1/2″ heavy wall steel tubing for the strongest design on the market to date.
Hitch: Integrated into the bumper which allows the bumper to tie in to it for maximum strength. The hitch is up in the bumper and passes through where the license plate will be so the depature angle is not effected. The hitch will be built from 2-1/2″ heavy wall steel tubing. It also is reinforced in the center with a formed plate and slots for trailer chains.
Attachment: 1/4″ CNC Laser Cut and Formed Plate Steel. Not just a flat, plasma cut plate like most bumpers out there which isn’t the best for side pulls. We added two bends on the plate, one goes under the chassis and bolts into the existing factory weld nuts.
Accessories: High Lift Cutouts, Flip Up License Plate Bracket, will use factory trailer plug and factory license plate lights.
Here are a couple 3D CAD models so you can get a visual. Once we have the prototype done, we will have a sale thread up. Stay Tuned!

Bump, Bumper, Bumpest….Bumpers are coming!
Design is complete on Mob Off’s first bumper! We will bring the prototype stage for a 2nd gen Tacoma Rear Plate Bumper. Come back soon for pictures of our work.
Mob Off is on the verge of releasing IFS skid plates for 2nd and 3rd gen Tacomas. Been on the look out for them on our site. They are already in production. We will add a link for Preorders very soon so you can get yours first.
Mobtown Offroad has a new project vehicle. Check out our new 4Runner.
1996 Toyota 4Runner SR5
3.4L V6 Auto 4×4
176k miles (blown motor)
All service records from dealer for life of the truck.
Original window sticker, MSRP $31,800 in 1996!
Only rust on entire truck is rear bumper rotted through in the center.
Nice thing about MD is at 20 years or older it can be tagged historic, so I did. Don’t need to worry about inspection or emissions.
Seller sold it with a motor he bought from Craigslist with 120k miles but there is always a chance it is no good. Ill be taking a gamble installing it.
Replace motor (obviously)

We’ve already ripped the running boards off and deleted the front bumper in preparation for our future modifications.
This 4Runner has a blown motor, but it came with a replacement. First, we need to get the motor swapped and get this thing running. We have sliders designed up already! Look for them to hit our shop soon. The front plate bumper is in the design phase. Add a lift in the near future and the MobRunner will be a fun little trail rig.
Longterm, we want to get rid of the IFS and do an SAS. Can’t wait, keep checking back for updates.
