    How much does an ARB bumper make the front end sag (stock TRD Off Road suspension)?

    Any cool pics of newer ARB bumpers on 2nd gens?

    I think it looks great.
    I have the original style on my 08...I wish they would have offered this then ~ I would have upgraded.

    I have the 1st Gen bumper on my 2007 Taco... and LOVE it! Hopefully I'll be getting some fogs on it soon and a winch later down the road.

    I didn't notice any significant drop in the ride, although since then I have installed spacers in the suspension so that would obviously help. I also like that the stance of the bumper will protect one from animal (deer) impacts quite well with the high and thick bar across the top (a big perk for me as I often drive through deer (infested) country...

    I ordered mine through 4WheelParts (about $800), then drove to their main warehouse to pick it up (avoiding shipping costs) myself. Install was pretty straight forward.
