    Got my truck Sunday, I love it. Double Cab, Black 4x4.
    Been reading the forum for a while but now ready for truck add on question.

    The first thing I want to put on my truck is a grill guard. Where's the best place to shop for one online ? Or do you guys find that dealer is competitive ?

    Thanks guys !!

    I bought mine at a local custom truck shop. I probably paid too much for it :frusty:

    I've put some thought into selling mine, let me know if you might be interested. It's an all black Aries/Westin bolt-on with 2 spots for lights.

    welcome to TW, nice choice of trucks

    [​IMG]

    I would recommend my grill guard / bull bar but I was told that hunter 4x4 doesnt make them anymore.
    the best thing is to just research the internet for different options
    and of coarse check out everyone's taco's here to get ideas.
    But watch, its addictive ;)

    skistoy, sweet ride man !! One question for all.
    Why is it that I searched for 6 months to find this taco sittin in my drive way, drove 5.5 hours to get it and now that I have it, all I can do is think about what I want to put on it when it's fine and all my friends are complimenting it "as is?"
    I love it though, just like it is. I cant wait every morning to drive it to work !!
