Q Michael Aaron McHugh • 04/05/2020, 11:30:05 PM will the collision/cruise sensor still work if the bumper has the bull bar tubework?
A 04/06/2020, 2:43:39 PM We do not recommend any tubework on our bumpers with the front radar system.
Q Chris • 04/19/2020, 8:05:04 PM Is the blitz bumper available in aluminium for the 3rd gen Tacoma ? Will a warn VR10s fit in this bumper on a 3rd gen tacoma without removing the solenoid pack ?
A 04/20/2020, 3:13:59 PM The 3rd gen Taco Blitz is not yet available in aluminum but it's on our short list. You will need to relocate the solenoid box on the 3rd gens.
Q Blake Brewer • 05/11/2020, 10:56:42 PM Can I use a Hi-Lift jack on this bumper?
A 05/15/2020, 1:52:09 PM Yes
Q Ben Collier • 06/06/2020, 9:53:22 AM Three questions: 1. Brian, did you defect from JCR Off-Road to Victory 4x4 or are they related companies>\? I suspect the latter. 2. Are you planning for the aluminum Gen 3 Tacoma version of the Blitz to be winch capable? 3. I may have missed it in the Gen 3 Tacoma Blitz install video, did you determine the weight of the OEM hardware removed in order to provide a basis to calculate the net weight of the installed Blitz (with tube work). I ask to help set up the preload offset adjustment on the new front coil/struts to accommodate the Blitz / Warn VR 10-S winch combo. BTW, your videos are terrific! Cheers, Ben Collier
A 06/10/2020, 4:43:34 PM 1) Victory 4x4 and JCR are sister companies, Brian is still with both :) 2) This is on the list in aluminum, but we don't have an ETA. 3) Sorry we didn't weigh the factory parts, but even with the steel bumper you shouldn't have to adjust pre-load based on the bumper alone.
Q Stephen Gerhold • 09/06/2020, 10:41:03 AM What is the best thing to use for touch up on the powdercoat? I have a couple of small rock chips on my front bumper.....
A 09/09/2020, 3:00:07 PM Rustoleum textured black works great.
Q Nate Tourangeau • 09/29/2020, 1:59:54 PM Will the smittybuilt x20 comp 10,000 pound winch fit in the bumper
A 10/01/2020, 1:40:01 PM Yes
Q James Parker Cunneen • 10/13/2020, 4:34:19 PM Where can I use a hi-lift hack on this bumper?
A 10/16/2020, 3:25:50 PM Yes, no problems.
Q Tom • 12/24/2020, 10:18:26 AM For my 3rd Gen Tacoma: Am I able to install the Blitz Bumper as well as a front hitch receiver (Ex: CURT Front Mount Trailer Hitches Front Mount Trailer Hitches - 31075)?
A 12/30/2020, 4:56:07 PM No, they will not work together. You may be able to bolt a "Step Bumper Receiver" on the bottom of the bumper though. You'd just have to drill and work around the winch if installed.
Q Jason Brown • 12/24/2020, 5:25:42 PM Hi is there enough room to mount a license plate? I'm required to have a front plate in my state of idaho.
A 12/30/2020, 4:56:07 PM We offer a FAIRLEAD LICENSE PLATE FLIP for this UNI-FPF-PC (https://www.victory4x4.com/product/UNI-FPF-PC.html)
Q JOSEPH • 01/08/2021, 10:47:57 AM WHAT SIZE D RING SHACKLES GO WITH THIS BUMPER? THANKS.
A 01/08/2021, 3:32:27 PM 3/4"
Q Dean • 01/28/2021, 11:46:29 PM Can you send me the size of the lightbar opening. Do you guys have a diagram with dimensions?
A 02/02/2021, 12:30:16 PM The cutout is 21 x 1.5
Q Shaun • 01/29/2021, 10:37:39 AM Is the aluminum bumper any lighter than the steal? Also will this bumper fit the Warn VR EVO 10-S WINCH or the Warn ZEON 10-S WINCH? Please elaborate if solenoid packs need to be relocated.
A 02/02/2021, 12:30:16 PM The aluminum bumper is half the weight. Without modifying the truck, both winches will need remote solenoid packs. If you modify one grill support bracket slightly by cutting it or bending it out of the way either winch can be squeezed in with integrated solenoids.
Q Andres Galeana • 02/16/2021, 1:20:42 AM Will this work with a Rough Country 12000LB pro series electric winch?
A 03/01/2021, 3:13:17 PM Yes, but you may need to relocate the solenoid box.
Q Jefferson • 02/25/2021, 11:19:06 PM Are the d ring mounts in the aluminum version still rated for recovery?
A 03/01/2021, 3:13:17 PM Yes
Q Michael • 03/05/2021, 10:57:30 AM Will this bumper work with the warn 9.0RC winch and the factor 55 short drum competition fair lead? Also, will the tube work interfere with an SR trim level Toyota safety sense?
A 03/05/2021, 1:10:49 PM It will work with the Factor 55. The Warn 9.0RC will fit, you may or may not have to relocate the solenoid. Yes, the tube work could interfere with the TSS. We would recommend going with no tube work for TSS.
Q Andre • 04/06/2021, 2:49:36 AM 1. Are you able to sell the bumper without the logo in the center of the lightbar cutout? 2. Do you plan on making a stage 2 high clearance add on the same way the Slimeline Hybrid Front Bumper does?
A 04/12/2021, 1:13:17 PM 1. No we don't, sorry. 2. No plans for that.
Q Collin • 05/16/2021, 10:13:57 PM Is it possible to install a wench after installing the bumper or will I have to take the whole thing off to get the wench in if I were to install the bumper first?
A 05/21/2021, 9:59:41 AM You would need to pull the bumper to install a winch.
Q Tommy • 05/30/2021, 11:32:37 AM I purchased this bumper for my taco and a Warn Evo 10-s winch, do I need some type of relocation kit to make it work?
A 06/04/2021, 10:30:55 AM You would either need to relocate the sednoid box, or bend/cut the factory bumper/grille support bracket directly above the winch. On our shop Tacoma we bent about .75" of this bracket over and the winch fit fine.

Bumper was fairly easy to install, I don’t notice the weight much, and it looks like it belongs on the truck. Solid product.
Alan (Bucks Co, PA) | October 23rd, 2019
The quality and finish of the Blitz bumper from Victory 4x4 is absolutely top notch! Installed on my 18' Tacoma and was a breeze and took about an hour, plus it didn't interfere with the Toyota Safety Sense system. The turn around time was fast too and arrived flawless. Thank you Victory for the great products and service!
Jobie (Dallas, Tx) | August 7th, 2019
Victory blow it away with this bumper. The turn around was super quick. Also the install was super easy from start to finish took all of about 1-1.5 hours. I will definitely be buying more products form Victory.
