a light bar or a bull bar or you could change your grill to a grillcraft and mount them behind the grill

i have seen those before, but i dont think they are a real good idea. a bull bar would suit you needs just fine. check the buy/sale/trade forum....i have a bull bar for sale!!

The light bar in that link mounts to the license plate? Do you know the front plate on our Tacos are only screwed into the plastic bumper and nothing else, your lights would look like a strobe bouncing up and down going down the road. Randy Ellis light bars can be had for less than 150.00, I believe.

yeah, if its the aftermarket skid.......it'll need to be either removed, or modded to fit with the bull bar.
