    There is a dealer near me that carries Westinn, Raptor, and I believe one other. The price between them are dramatic but I am concerned about quality. I really don't go off road and it will mainly be there for looks and to hold a set of fog lights. I suppose I would like to think it would somewhat protect the truck in minor accidents involving animals. Which company do I go with?

    sold Tacoma, driving a Ford Raptor now.
    I think they are pretty much all the same IMO. I went with westin because of their black plastic accents. Then again you may be talking about a wrap around version.

    Aries is very good quality bullbar and then westin. I had an aries bullbar with 2 hella 500 lights but when offroading it didnt suit my needs lost a little clearance and needed more light. But since its just for show i would go with aries

    Yeah just a normal bull bar, like I said no off roading so I dont need the bushwacker wrap around. I think its 199 for raptor 219 for aires and 399 for westin. Sound like decent prices?

    The same seller also has t304 stainless nerf bars for 120 but doesn't show company. Currently at work and its 330 am so needless to say they aren't open. Avg price for nerfs?
