    Ordered an ARB bumper from TRDparts4u mid March and it got delivered last monday. Installed right after work. It was too easy. I know there are several very good choices for front bumpers out there. When I compared price, time to deliver and strength, ARB was the way to go, I just wasn't to sure about the looks. After I put it on and stood back to take a look, I gotta say, I really like the way it looks. Pics don't do this bumper justice.

    I don't personally have a need for a full off road bumper but that does look sick... nice choice black on white

    yes, i wasnt a fan of the ARB for the longest time... but because of its durability and all, i find i have taken quite the liking to it.

    looks good.

    When I first got my Tacoma I was going to get an ARB but they didn't incorporate the fog lights at the time. I actually contacted the company was able to speak with the owner about why they couldn't have cutouts for them. He tells me it was an engineering decision at the time of design. They wouldn't even make me a custom one.

    Point of my story: Glad to see they are finally taking fog lights:thumbsup:

    It can be done. 35's can fit with trimming and chopping the cab mount.

    Most likely. Square up my cab mounts and get some wheel spacers. ;)
