    I found a brush guard on Craigslist. Bought it for $50. It came off of a 99 Tacoma. If anyone has this brushguard or anything like it, could you post some close up pictures of the mounting points. I tried the Manik website, but it is "under construction", so all info is "coming soon". Any help would be appreciated. Forgot to mention, it is a Manik Brush guard.
    Thanks Chad

    Never mind. Got it all figured out. Probably won't have a chance to mount it til wednesday at the earliest, but you know I'll throw some pictures up when I do.

    Got some photos. Just a mock-ups to get a general idea how it will look. So far, I like what I see.

    Thank you, I appreciate your compliment. I can't wait to have it actually attached. I had to Email Manik to find out about some brackets and I got someone on standby to custom fab a couple for me if I need them.

    I'm losing faith in the customer service at Manik. Prior to placing an order they couldn't have been more helpful. Now that they've had my $ for a while, I can't get a response from them.:mad:

    I've called twice and emailed twice with no response whatsoever. I havn't hit the 3 month possible wait period yet, but I'm not far off.

    You should cut the headlight guards off and make it a nudge bar.

    Looks nice though.

    None just yet, just a few cosmetic changes
    Just got the same guard, didn't come with brackets either, can you post up pictures of what the mounting brackets look like so I could fab some or tell me where I could find a picture of what they look like? Looked all over google
