    you should space out the front wheels for a more baja look if you do. I just hate how unfinished it looks when you can see the white body behind it :(

    imo those bumpers look hideous. i bet they're very functional (i personally don't know the first thing about pre-running/baja...ing/whatever), but i think they ruin the look of the truck. im not a fan. but its your truck!

    i have the same problem. But where you can see all the body behind my bumper, i think im going to paint it all black so it blends with the bumper.

    My friend just got one for his taco and i think that stuff looks badass as hell. IMO it looks better on a darker colored taco and if you paint the baja bumper bars black.

    It really is up to you, whether your going for looks, or if your actually going to use your bumper, whatever kind you purchase needs to be for what you want, looks or for play. Thats my opinion. I personally like the ARB bumpers, but everyone seems to have them now a days.

    What were doing with my friends is painted the baja bumper black and then painted the background black and trimming whatever that doesnt look necessary to make it all blend in ill take pictures once we start on it

    i want one so bad. i think it looks sweet with the new bumper. i agree that it looks a little silly with the white behind it but oh well cuz it should have mud and sand blasted all over the front right?

    Well my problem is, I have a 2.7 engine. I don't want to over tax my engine. I do off road quite a bit and I can see where I would have a great amount of clearance. But Another member has contacted me, with a guy who builds these type of bumpers. I like his design better than the actual Baja bumper.

    I cleaned up the white behind, looks great IMO!
    But it looks to be a rad support, so your prob gona have to just paint it black.
