    May I ask what is the point in those type of this bull bars(if you can call them a bull bar). Just curious as from what I have seen with people whom have them on, those bars tend to do more damage to the truck then if they were not there (i.e break in a collision and get shoved into the tranny/engine block), they are not manufactured to the same standards as most off road bumpers, and are mainly for show.

    If you just after it for looks, go ahead, but if you want protection, please purchase a proper bumper from one of the many reputable offroad bumper manufactures like ARB, Relentless, RCI, Pelfrey, etc.

    Bull bars are pretty much out of style now due to their lack of functionality and ease to steal the lights off of them. Most people install recessed lights or full bumper conversions now.

    I like your limited! We don't get the 18" on our limited up here for some reason.

    i agree they are useless I like the look of this new style on the Lund Revolution They are not round tubes they are more of an angle cut Thought it might look good but did not want to spend 500 unless i see them on same style of truck

    I have a local guy that runs one, I don't like it. I had one in my 4buggy before I traded it for the taco so I might be just sick of the look already. The final decision to never get one again was it would completely loose all approach angle I would have off road. I always had to beat out the dents from the damage from rocks and even frozen snow in the winter. Bull bars have run their cool cycle life span. My $.02 but to each their own!

    Could someone please post a picture of the Lund Revolution. Agreed, it's only for looks. I didn't trade in my Tundra for a 2017 Inferno Red Taco TRD Sport for it's practicality. I got it because it looks bad. If I were concerned about a push bar that served a purpose, I would have kept my "cactus cutter" and my 1979 Bronco, the king of SUVs. I just want my Taco to look cool. Anyone got any pics, I can't find them any-freakin-where. PLEASE!

    Got ya, looks nice. I live in VA, which requires front plates, any issues? Would I have to move my plate to the front of the bar or would it be visible? Any issues with install?

    I'm not sure how that works. We don't need a front plate in PA

    I think its the best design. I didnt like the hoop around fog so this one is without the hoop, powder coated.
    It was a bit of bi*ch to install without taking off anything but you can do it. Need to cut a small piece of plastic, no biggie
