    hehe... :) That's a bad photoshop job I did there... Here's a better picture, but check my gallery for more.

    It's a Westin Sportsman model 40-1605.

    The one on the roof is photoshopped on cause I'm "thinking" of having something like that made - just not sure. The brush guard isn't photoshopped, but the lights on it are different than what I have.

    I ordered the brush guard off amazon.com. Quite a bit cheaper than buying from a local shop.

    I haven't bought skids yet, but I'm seriously considering a full set of Bud Builts. It'll probably be the last major mod to my truck for a while, but I think it's a good investment since I plan to wheel it more. Might get a bumper at some point to improve approach clearance, but so far I'm not nuts about how most of them look. The only skid plate I have is the stock piece of aluminum foil, but I painted it red... :)

    Yeah, but it looks so nice!! :)

    I'm not opposed to replacing the brush guard for another bumper, but I want more than just a plate bumper. Also don't want to lose my lights...

    Just checked Road Armor's site and they have front and rear bumpers for the Tacoma! Expensive as hell, but look much better than many others...

    Their bumper with full guard looks like ass, but I like the look of this one.

    ^^^ I agree! Do they make that bumper with a pre-runner bar? That might look nice. :)

    I saw a picture of one with a prerunner bar about a month ago, but that was before they started officially offering them. I was hoping to see that too. I'm thinking about contacting them, seeing if they'll put one on...
