¹ Concessions have been made for extra ground clearance and a sleek appearance and you will need to adjust your equipment accordingly. Depending on your setup this may mean longer drop hitches, wiring extensions, etc...
² Designed to support the loads of the factory tow capacity, but carries no SAE certification, nor is it designed to meet any DOT or FMCSA regulation.
We produce these products in a low volume compared to the OEMs or aftermarket receiver hitch companies. As such, it's not feasible for us to get this product tested against SAE J684 specifications or design it meet specific DOT or FMCSA regulations. So while we try to over-engineer our products with the loads of the factory vehicle capacity in mind; towing a trailer on public highways is at your own risk and we make no claims on the legality or viability of doing so. We cannot offer any recommendations on capacity beyond this. If the ratings of the factory receiver hitch are important to you, we would recommend choosing a bumper that keeps that in place.

Scott P (Maryland) | January 3rd, 2022
The bumpers look really good. There was fabrication issues on the front bumper, my mechanic had to make shift spacers to make the light bar fit. (That’s really lousy for how much these bumpers cost) And on the rear bumper they forgot to include the license plate hinge, so my truck is still sitting in the shop in pieces because They can’t put the license plate on, so I’m waiting for the company to ship it while my truck just sits in the shop. Also they were about two months past the leadtime, so you think it would’ve showed up perfect. Quality looks good, just know it’s not gonna slide right on. The fabrications are not perfect, but a good mechanic will get it done!
Note From Victory 4x4: Depending on the width of your specific light bar, you may need some sort of spacer to install it. There is no real standard width for 20" bars, so we have to allow some adjustability.
Edd (Fort Worth) | September 23rd, 2021
Truthfully I have the Strike II with the high clearance wings but this is just as solid. This is a well built bumper that I did have to bang on with a rubber sledge but its gives me confidence that it won't shift or wiggle whatsoever in its lifetime. I did have minor issues lining up the rear most bolt for the 8 main frame bolts but once aligned it didn't move whatsoever with all the bolts loose. It does come with little plugs for the future adventure carrier install to keep them clean and free of grime. All the electrical slots fit with no issues and worked with nothing more than zip tying them up the frame after reinstall. I do wish it didn't have slots for backup sensors as I have nothing to plug them with so I have 4 small holes without anything to cover them as the moment. Still excellent 5/5 overall.
Andrew Rodriguez (Los Angeles, California) | May 18th, 2020
Super high quality product! I ordered this for my truck in the hope to add some protection to my rear end from bad drivers and rocky trails while maintaining my factory towing capacity. Install was easy enough and the videos and support available gave me all the confidence I needed. Excellent product from a stand up company.
Chris | March 23rd, 2020
Purchased this bumper summer 19. Easy install! I appreciated the youtube install video and intend on getting more products in the future.
Ron | September 10th, 2019
Do you plan on creating a rear bumper for a 3rd Gen Tacoma with both BSM and backup sensors?
Paul Steven Ferguson (South Carolina) | March 30th, 2020
First , I love this bumper... it looks great and it is tough without weighing a ton. The install can be done by one person if they are careful although the video makes it look easier than it is. There are only two things I’d take issue with ...I don’t have stock sensors so I was very happy that plugs were provided. I’m not sure , however, if they fit very well. I have them in and they are glued in — time will tell. Finally, why the odd size nuts/ bolts? I’m not sure why the bracket to frame bolts and the bumper to bracket bolts are different sizes. Also, the nut and Allen head license plate combo is a tad unique— I can’t say I’m looking forward to loosening that Allen bolt once I have to change tags. Still, these are very minor issues ... I look forward to loading up my Tacoma with Victory products!
