    Thanks!!

    Yup i was thinking Aries mainly cuz of the price.

    Also another question..is there any negative to cutting out the plastic piece over the hood scoop? Just to keep temps down in the engine bay i know im not gonna get any "ram air" from it or anything.

    The white accord is my old car i traded in btw...

    I traded my '06 Scion TC for my Tacoma, before that I had a '95 Civic coupe. Seems there are quite a few who convert from the import scene..

    Welcome to TW. As for the hood protector, get the one from Toyota. It cost about $81.00 from your dealer. As for cutting out to allow air into the hood scoop, well our trucks do not have a overheating problem so I would not bother, plus that part would lose a lot of support if you cut on it. I have an 07 (look at my picks if you want to see it) and the first thing I put on it was the hood protector and the Toyota one works great. As for the bull bar, you will not find a better price than the one Tacomaman06 is selling.

    actually.......i would stay away from the bug guard that toyota has.......the clips dig into the paint and mess the hood up. avs and wade make some that inrstall with 3m tape, and they are great. just a heads up!!

    jason....thanks for plugging for my bull bar man!!:D
