I say repurpose it and build a bumper out of it. Take all that plastic crap underneath off and just build a nice tube bumper. It sure does help the approach angle.

Yupp, I've sawzalled enough of mine off to know how thin that front plastic is.

But I say leave it! Makes it yours and noticeable, and... You can never have enough lights in my opinion. It's up to you man, if you like it, keep it! If not, well, I know someone who'd take those lights off your hands

i'd cut off the sides and top bar, then you still get the use of a light bar without the the extra/ugly junk.

there's partially a reason for that... you want it to crumple so it absorbs the impact/force. of course, that will have more or less importance depending upon the speed, etc. of the collission.

That type doesn't look right. It doesn't flow with the shape of the tacoma very well. Besides, light bars are hideous..
