Question re: 4.1 OEM Rear Step/Tow Bumper

Recently bought a '98, I've noticed some 4.1's have oem tow bumpers. Was this an option in '98? If not, will one of these bolt on to a '98? More importantly, how difficult is it to find one?

rockauto.com I think it is only 4 bolts and wiring hookup is inside back panel. If you want lights you have to buy a plugin for the trailer.

I checked rockauto and didn't find anything. Wasn't the tow bumper an oem part?

4-bagger,
I just sold one last week that I pick up in the junk yard off of a 99 RAV4. I will keep my eyes open for another one. It will bolt right on your 98.

It will bolt to any 4.1. There was one on my 97' when I bought it.

I need one also. I found a couple, but they were dented, missing parts or damaged. Let me know if you have one for sale. Thanks

Nevermind. I will wait.

Thanks
