    Hello all! Hope this post finds all of you well. I'm trying to decide on what kind of bull bar and nerf bars I'm gonna buy for my truck. I have decided for sure that I want to go black powdercoat on whatever I get. I think that'll set the Speedway blue off quite nicely. The Westin and Aries bull bars come in black powdercoat, but I don't like the stainless skidplate that comes with them. I want that black as well, and I don't want to spend extra money on having the skidplate powdercoated locally. I'm looking at the Hunter Bull Bar and the N-Fab steps. Is there anything else I should take a look at? Guide me ole wise and eager to help ones...... :D

    Also, I've added BF Goodrich Mud-Terrains to my ride and tinted the front windows 20% (5% strip on windshield) since this shot was taken.

    Thanks for your responses so far, and certainly thanks for the links for some awesome prices. I've looked at the KC light bar. Those things aren't cheap for as little as there APPEARS to be. I know looks on the computer can be deceiving. Has anyone had one of the Hunter bull bars on their Taco? I'm just curious as to the quality and look to them.

    good choices but dont buy trd seat covers, they are crappy!! cheap, they look good in the pic, but they aren't. they only cover 1/3 of the rear of the seat. they dont fit tight at all. i bought some and sent them back. try looking at some at your dealer if you can. buy wet okole. I as well as everyone else has 'em. they are great! Grillcraft+++!!

    are you sure you had them propperly installed? i had a bit of trouble fitting mine, but once i got them right, they conform to the seat very well.

    i am very pleased with the TRD seat covers. have had them on for over two years now, with no complaints. i dont sit on the back of my seat, and i don't have kids to kick the hell out of them, so lack of coverage on the rear isn't an issue for me.

    i would definately recommend these. wet okoles are highly reguarded by most as well.

    I have the Hunter bar on mine, although it is the polished stainless version. I still love it.
