Will The Westin Bumper 32018 Fit My 2003 Toyota Tacoma With Aftermarket Hitch?


I am looking at the Westin Rear Bumper, black powder coated #32018. I have an after market toe hitch. There are two bolt holes on the underside of the OEM bumper that the hitch screws into. Does the 32018 bumper have these two pre drilled threaded bolt holes in it?


Expert Reply:

The Westin Perfect Match Series Rear Step Bumper - Black Powder Coated Steel # 32018 is built to OEM specifications to perfectly match your 2003 Toyota Tacoma. It has a pre-drilled 3/4" hole for a hitch ball to mounted, which is what the OEM bumper has; this bumper can tow up to 3,000lbs when a hitch ball is added. For a hitch ball you can use 2" Hitch Ball - 3/4" Diameter 3,500 lbs # 19258.

If you are referring to the actual trailer hitch receiver, then that is mounted to the frame of your Tacoma and does not touch the bumper. I have attached an installation video for this bumper along with an installation video for an aftermarket hitch (Curt # 13013) that fits your 2003 Tacoma so that you can fully see and understand the process for each part.
