    Thanks for letting me know, I'll take a look in the morning. Freight usually runs 150-200, but we don't have a good way to quote it online. If you want an exact quote shoot me a PM with your zip

    In a frontal collision, will the forces be transmitted directly into the frame? Don't want to defeat the crumple zone. And don't want to cause unnecessary frame damage.

    Thanks for this great thread! This is my first post on TW. I've been trolling for years, learning, experimenting. Thanks to all who share their experiences!

    Anyhow, long story short is I was rear-ended a month ago and had to let go my 1997 Tacoma. I am now in tremendous debt on KoKo, my new 2019 Tacoma.

    **Let the rebuild begin**

    I installed the ARB Summit bumper on my old rig after hitting a deer 2 summers ago. I'd like to get a front bumper on the new one, asap. I do not off-road much, and need the bumper with loops primarily for wildlife prevention. :) (In fact, I was rear-ended on the highway after someone _else_ hit a moose, and I slowed down.)

    Anyhow, out of the options listed by the original poster, I see my choices as: C4 Fab Overland, ARB Summit, or Mobtown offroad.

    The Fab Fours seem to cover the front sensor. The Exped 1 seems great, but is only listed for 2016. Does anyone know if it's compatible with newer years?

    What are folks' experiences with these 3 bumpers? I have confirmation from ARB and C4 that both will not block the front sensor.

    Which is better for performance? Weight? What you get for the money? Style/design for my purposes?

    I'll be drop shipping the bumper to my local shop for install, since I am not mechanically inclined. I might add a winch, but that's it. I like the ARB integrated fog lights, as it seems close to the original bumper design. The "light bar" deal on the C4 seems beyond my Inner Redneck. Not sure what value it would add for me; could someone please educate me on the purpose of light bars?

    Cheers & thanks!

    I like that bumper too. We studied that one pretty hard when we were design ours.
