    I have the chance to get a new chrome bull bar with mounting hardware for $100. What do you guys think about these things? I know they are for looks and I think I like them.

    I also have a set of Westin 3" chrome nerf bars already on the truck and love them.

    If you have the TRD OR it would look fine with those nerf bars probably. I'm just not a fan of the Westin-type bull bars in general, but it's your truck! Do whatever you want to make it yours!

    It's all your opinion. If you like it do it, if not... don't.

    My opinion on them: stupid, useless, and all chrome must die.

    you won't get much bull bar support on here btw, a lot of members just don't care for them. i don't think they look bad myself. . . like they said though, it's all up to you :thumbsup:

    I voted no. If it were me I would go with the Avid light bar, more functional and better looking imho

    Most aftermarket bull bare are light mount bars and offer little in protection and may cause more damage in small accidents.
    That said if it is what you want go for it.
    Just understand if you plan to do some serious trails and wheeling save up for a bumper.

    Not a fan of bull bars but I think they can look "ok" on the right truck. Need to see your color and other mods before voting.
