hadn't realized that but you're right the 1st gen 4-runners and '84-88 truck bumpers were most likely the same. Quite certain though the pic above is the factory bumper. 2 more examples below. Anyone know if these bumpers are still available?that looks like a stock bumper for a 1st gen 4runner. Not like a stock pickup bumper...

I have a 87 sr5 and have the same problem with finding the rear end caps. I have even thought about making an end cap to replace my missing ones - would look a bit better.
I am planning to eventually do a cosmetic restoration on my 2-wheel drive '88 extra-cab longbed...new paint(orig. color red), carpet/interior, factory stripe decal(though I may instead go with the '87 z-pattern style, I like that one better), factory chrome bumpers, etc. Currently it has a generic-type replacement chrome bumper which looks okay but I always liked the look of the original type with the plastic caps. Apparently they are both really tough to find(bumper and caps).I believe theos bumpers with the caps on the rear are 2 wheel drive only. Try a 4x4 bumper and it would be an upgrade as they have no plastic end caps......?
