    Been following TW fro roughly 2 years, just got enough money to buy but still haven't gotten my taco yet (waiting for the right deal). I'm set on an MGM DC TRD SR5 4x4 but before i make the purchase Im trying to map out all my future mods. I was first stuck on ARB bumpers but then I kinda liked the ALL-PRO. Now I guess I just kinda want looks and I really dig the DEMELLO 3 HOOP.
    Anyone got any reviews/ pics of this other than the 2 or 3 that D.O. showed? I have a feeling it only looks good at the angle the picture was taken.


    P.S. if i plan on putting a lift plus new tires on the taco is a trd even worth it besides the back-up cam?

    i have MGM and i really love the look of the Demello 3 hoop.
    def going to try and save up for that one

    the TRD also comes with the upgraded seats, and depending on if you get the sport or not it will have color matched bumper,handles,grill, and mirrors

    Just out of curiosity, what does the color of the truck have to do with the style bumper? Am I missing something?

    Sorry I should have specified. I was inquiring about bumpers on an MGM taco because in my opinion some bumpers look better on different colored trucks and, as i said earlier, I want to make this truck look fu*king beautiful.
    Black with Black bumpers look perfect to me, but Im a sucker for the MGM color and want to make it look badass. :)

    See build thread.
    I like the demello bumper but the 3 loop is a bit over kill. if you are just going for looks get the all-pro. looks nice but is expensive for what it is.

    im going to go with relentless or ato.

    Yeah, that three-hoop is mean looking. I'm still waiting to see pics of their newly redesigned one (minor tweaks) since I'll be in the market for a new bumper very soon, too. Good luck!

    I think they might still have the group buy pricing on it too. If I was to get a plate bumper I would have to go with a demello single hoop.

    I understand now... A black bumper should go well with the mgm color. Good luck finding the perfect one and be sure to post up a few pictures once it's installed! :thumbsup:
