    Hello all.
    I'm looking to buy a light bar and im set on the NFAB. They look sweet and arent too expensive. However does anyone know the difference between these two? http://www.4wheelparts.com/Bumpers-Side-Steps/Light-Bar.aspx?t_c=64&t_s=360&t_pt=3182&t_pl=7129

    I have a silver tacoma so i want whichever looks better, however they are both black so i dont think it will make much of a difference. But one is more expensive. Does anyone know what the textured one looks like and which of the two are better? Thanks for all you imput!:D

    First a foremost dont buy it from 4wheelparts, thats trouble waiting to be had. just call nfab direct and order it. the phone number out there is 1-866-806-6322 (talk to Melissa, I think she is who i remember dealing with)

    The light bar (PN: T054LB) is this one:

    The other is a pre-runner style light bar (PN: T052LH) an looks like this:

    buying from N-fab directly will also give you every paint/line-x option available.

    i like the second also..as long as it flows with the front bumper. The first one just looks like a bar slapped on the front of your truck with lights.

    Thanks dark knight. I will do just that. Im also gonna pick up some of their rediculously sexy side steps. I dont think i like the second prerunner one mainly because it sticks out too far from the bumper at the top. Plus i wont be doing any crazy offroading. 80% for more light and 20% for looks. lol but if i had the money to prerunner my truck i would definitely be going with the second.

    the pre-runner bar from a side view sticks out about 10" from the grill, and kind of follows the lines of the truck. Also only holds 2 lights.

    Just looks awkward to me.

    yea, but at least it bends with the body. the other one dont..its just a bar on the front..I could cut down my neighbors fence and do the same thing.
