    Thanks man. Love the metallic blue. Think the bull bar looks good w/the bug guard with that color as well

    EDIT: Yeah, wheels and tires were my first and still favorite purchase when I bought the truck.

    Hey if you like it keep, just my opinion on how they look. Less of my opinion and more fact is they are very much considered damage multipliers in accidents. Either way welcome to TW and enjoy your truck.

    I like the look of that style a lot more but those most likely also fall into the damage multiplier category.


    If I was going to get one I'd go with one of these from Avid, as they've proven themselves to be fairly stout; http://www.avidoffroad.com/cart/ind...roducts/toyota-tacoma-front-bumper-guard.html . I continue to shy away because my dclb is already occasionally to long for parking spots.

    In a hard collision I absolutely agree...

    But I do a lot of city driving and have street parking right now, so I see an advantage as a damage minimizer for any idiot who might bump in to me.

    Also have a lotta fam in Deer country that I go see a lot. I think it would do some good against a deer in a direct front impact.
