    AE86 JDM / aftermarket bumper reference

    Just thought I'd post up some links for AE86 body kits, since people seem to always ask "where do I get this?" Maybe this can be eventually moved to the reference section.

    I know there's more, but these are some of the major ones.

    OEM bumper info: I know some stuff you can still get, some you cannot. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, and I will edit my post.

    OEM JDM bumpers
    Kouki front: availabilty is sketchy
    Kouki rear is discontinued
    kouki front and rear brackets still available from Toyota Canada
    Kouki bumper lights still available from Toyota Canada
    Rear kouki is discontinued
    JDM grill is still available
    Zenki front and rear bumpers discontinued
    Zenki lip still available

    Crazy Joe has some OEM bumper parts in stock.

    ** NOTE: virtually all aftermarket bumpers mount to JDM bumper brackets. Unless you want to zip tie, you will need JDM bumper brackets.

    the JDM kouki front bumpers at the moment are on back order... unsure of when they'll show up... california used to stock these front bumper covers, however, they have since become unavailalble in the USA, and when vancouver's warehouse bot all of the remaining USA inventory, i had then purchased them, and then sold them to to a shop based in seattle for them to re-sell

    i am unsure of the future availability of the 52119-12092 bumper covers... they're not stocked in USA anymore, which means, they may not be available to north america anymore... i'll post on here if this changes... someone NOEL, please help me confirm this...

    They are horrible to deal with, but that's another story for another time. Modified inc also makes a replica of the JB kit.

    yes but my modified kit took 3 months of broken deadlines and ship dates and blatant lying to me on the phone before he finally shipped it. quality seems to be ok tho, havent tried to put it on the car though, hopefully in the next couple weeks whenever my 2" CBY copy flares show up

    Personally I'm not 'huge' on the JDM bumpers.... however the 1 piece design is sna-z-z-y... With that in mind does the huge bumper rebar get removed and thus need support further down (bomber bar I think? could very well be wrong) or is the original bumper rebar still left in tact?

    Any weight loss running JDM/after-market bumpers?

    Yes, the USDM rebar is removed. Some would say that the rigidity is compromised since the left and right JDM brackets are not tied together. That's what the aftermarket bomber bar would do. I think it's more bling really, I mean you could easily weld a square bare connecting the two together.

    You lose a lot of weight, about 25lbs up front and 25lb out back approx.

    i believe the full JDM setup (kouki bumper + bomber bar etc) was 27 pounds lighter than the usdm set up...

    me and brian weighed it all out while installing my bumper @ 86tuning garage !

    Hey guys,

    What about B-tune's bumpers? Anyone heard what their quality is like?

    When installing JDM bumpers, I highly recommend using either a "bomber bar" or making your own piece of rebar out of c-channel.

    If you were ever to hit something dead center in the front of the car without one of these pieces, there will be nothing to stop it. A low speed collision in a parking lot with a post will write your car off at that point.

    15psi + 200hp + 2400lbs = GOOD!

    Mac, I can understand what you're saying about hitting a post, but otherwise I think you may be spreading a little too much paranoia about these bumpers. The brackets are very strong units, and can actually absorb quite a bit of impact. There's no way they can tackle collisions like the regular GT-S bumpers, but from all the rediculous rumours I've heard over the years, it's as if people think JDM brackets are as strong as styrofoam.

    I think many people fail to look at things from this perspective: These are factory bumpers afterall. If "JDM" bumpers and brackets have been used and abused for over 20 years in dozens of countries around the world, and these cars still to this day drive around (albeit with a few dents and dings) with those original bumpers....personally, I'm not that worried. But I'm not getting into major car crashes on a regular basis either

    FYI...I hit a mountain with the corner of my car in California in 2003. The Kouki bumper and bracket were both fine. The corner light was another story...

    A bomber bar is a good idea, but strictly speaking, not a necessity. I've seen a zenki JDM bumper after a run-in with a tree :o The tree didn't write it off. There was minor bendage in the bumper itself, the frame was okay because the bumper "stretched" slightly, without tweaking the frame horns.

    Those bumpers are remarkably sturdy, they're not the same as the USDM skins. Now if you cut out the middle of a USDM bumper to save weight, IMO that's not very wise.
