I made a front bumper for my coach,sits right behind the front cap. I made it out of .095 wall roll cage tubing, 2 horizontal bars 12" apart bent on an arc to form to front cap and directly behind the grille bars with vertical bars every 8" going from headlight to headlight. It mounts to front frame rails of coach using tubing going straight back and diagonal, welded to 1/4 "thick angle ,then bolted with 3/4" bolts. Same design as we used on stock cars, I am sure it will knock any toyota into the next zip code, with minimum damage to important parts on my coach ie radiator,battery etc, fiberglass will break but still might be able to drive the coach with a half a roll of 100 mph tape. IMHO it was $100.00 well spent (and 8-10 hours of my time). I am sure it won't work in every case , but it's much better than nothing at all. Unlike the race car, I have no intention of pushing anyone that is not going fast enough, just nice to know that something is there, just in case the urge arises (joking).
