    I bought my first Toyota about 6 months ago after having several Chevrolet, Ford and Dodge products that seemed to always have something wrong with them. I know this question has probably been asked
    a million times but I am going to ask it again. I have read several threads but still am not sure. I would like to know what the best Brush/Grill Guard is. I don't do any serious off roading but would like somethine that doesn't rattle, shake and could help protect my truck from a deer. I also would like to know where to buy this product along with other accerories for my truck. Seems like most product websites only go up to a 2007 Tacoma. I am note sure if they would fit a 2008 or not. Any info would help.. My truck is a Silver 2008 Tacoma Double Cab TRD. I would like to do the following mods to my truck.

    brush/grill guard
    step bars
    2 or 3 inch lift
    wheels
    exhaust
    tint
    bed cap
    black out head lights & tail lights
    black out grill and all badges

    That should get me started. I am going with a silver and black look.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to TW :D

    05-08 trucks are almost identical (plus / minus some yearly add ons). You'll be fine ordering 07 stuff for your 08.

    Be careful with the 09 stuff. It's the same truck, but a few more items are different than your 08.

    Use the search function on this site and search for "brush guard". You might be suprised at the responses.

    you need one of the $900+ bumpers to protect from a deer..... plus, its head will probably still slap your hood
