Bumper Opinions

Need some opinions here, my taco is an 05 with 30,800 +/- miles on it. I am not planning on selling it in the future, because for one it is payed for, and I have other mods I want to do...

I have an All-Pro bumper on the way, but am trying to figure out what to do with the old bumper/skids/fogs. Should I sell them and make some cash, or put them in storage (I have a place to store them).
What do you all think??

See if you can fit the fogs in the new bumper. Sell/scrap the rest.

i added about 15" of wire.. not sure on the exact guage.

help me out here, why would adding more wire increase the amount of power drawn?

I just cut the wire before the harness.. added in length and used L brackets to mount the lights with existing holes and voila!

Keep 'em. Just incase you do decide to sell/trade your Taco someday you can either swap the AllPro onto your new rig or sell it seperately. It will be worth more "sold seperately" than it will on your truck. I guess that if storage of the stock stuff is an issue get rid of it, otherwise keep it.

In the past, when I buy a used vehicle I RUN away from lifted/customised rigs just because alot of the time it means the previous owner wheeled it and who knows what kind of abuse that vehic has been subjected to. Plus you can get more for your aftemarket stuff sold seperately. Granted, not all buyers think like me, but that's my 2cents.
