There have been pictures of wrecks recently, a couple including Bullbars, and while I understand deer and Dodge Rams are different, the Bullbars didn't seem to do a lick of good in the Dodge scenario. It may not do much good with deer either as the bar doesn't cover much and the deer could still bash into the fenders/headlamps or smack into the bar and hit your grill. And there's the unintentional frame damage aspect as well, which may happen if you ever accidently run into anything sturdy with your front end.
What are you upgrading to? Is it something that the bumper could transfer to? I can't think of very many Tacoma owners who wouldn't appreciate a solid front end if you decided to sell down the road.
