    Did a search and didn't find any information or threads about these yet. I think it looks a lot better than the traditional bull bar which I knew I didn't want, but feel like my truck needs a little something, and think this is an attractive piece. They're listed at go rhino now, but still aren't available for immediate purchase. What do you guys/gals think about it?

    He keeps saying how functional it is, but what does it do? Doesn't look like it would take a hit from a kangaroo, nor does it mount a winch. Looks nice for adding LEDs...

    Dat grill! Does anybody know who makes it? I contacted Go Rhino and they said it was a gift and they couldn't remember who gave it to them. Sorry about being off topic.

    More like Gay Rhino.
    That "step skid plate" is about to get a lot closer the first time it sees a steep approach angle.

    Yep, that grill is nice and is matching the bezel under the light.
    Somebody should go to them and beat them up till they tell you where is from.

    It looks like it will get torn off the first time you go off-road. Say goodbye to your approach angle.

    To answer OPs question... I don't care for it personally. But, to each his own. We have SO many options for our Tacomas compared to most other vehicles... if this is the one you like, go for it.

    That grill is a T-rex... Amazon has them. There's a thread in here somewhere, a grill thread I believe, and a few guys have posted pics of it installed.

    I highly doubt anyone with a bullbar would ever take their truck off road to a point where they would worry about their approach angle :D

    It worsens your approach angle.

    I don’t think it’s the Trex grille, my trex grill has a lower spot for the Toyota logo (the bars are notched out so the Toyota emblem can fit flush)
