    Hey so I'm ordering a Shrockworks front bumper for my taco and wanted to know what you guys think that look better. I'm kinda leaning towards the center hoop only .

    You should do just hoop and black IMO. Looks a lot better on the tacos this way.

    I'm getting a front bumper with all the hoops, because I do a lot of driving in areas known to be infested by deer. I think it depends on where you drive

    Agreed , if the hoops are being considered for function rather than just for looks

    Voted for just the center hoop. I think that looks best and will keep the weigh down some unless you need the full protection.

    I would agree that it depends on the need. For looks only, just the center hoop. For function the light hoops also. In my opinion you will get more protection from the light hoops than the center hoop. Most branches on trails and deer attacks happen at your front corners. If the bumper is just for looks, then it looks good without the light hoops. I also like the white one on the white truck - it looks like it is part of the truck, not an afterthought.

    Just the hoop. Just for a second. Just to see how it feels.
