    Black, if you must.

    FYI, in the event of an accident, they cause more damage than without.

    Cool! It is a good look!

    Check out my other pix for how the black side bar looks as well.

    BTW...what black wheels were you looking at?

    None unless u live in a ranch or something like that where you actually use a brush guard or bull bar. Funny how you see all these city folks driving around town with huge brush gaurds and they don't actually go anywhere's near brush or have a ranch. LOL :D Well that's my opinion on that....................

    Dude, Save your money, get a Demello or ARB front bumper look 10x better and be 100x better protected. Bull bars are junk. they have been shown to cause more damage in accidents as said above.

    Believe me or anyone with a complete front armor bumper, Your going to get a ton more compliments and i guarantee you that in any front end collision youll fair 100x better then you would with a bull bar. It might be a tad bit more expensive but you get what you pay for, Demello and Relentless to name a few make BEEF as fuck bumpers man.

    Mine being 17's, I'm ridin' them till the tires need replacing. If my son had his way (he's @ Discount Tire in SA, TX), the wheels and tires would be upgraded already!!! Soon enough though... LOL

    Check this build: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2n...opponents-build-photo-thread.html#post5846667

    There's also a thread on here regarding black wheel options that may help: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/269628-black-wheels-would-you-pick.html

    Good luck!

    Love people who give answers that are not even part of the question.... but either way, def go with black too much chrome makes your truck look like it is from wal-mart IMHO. I find the black give it a more aggressive look and it mixes in well with the silver.

    Here is a pic of mine on:

    [​IMG]

    Not sure if I am gonna keep it around once i start modding, but for now, I love it, makes my truck more unique and brings out the oem smoked headlights. Also if ya wanna ditch the chrome, buy some plasti derp and spray it on over. Voila instant black emblems.

    I will definitely agree that the black makes the front end mean. I did end up going with a black one: [​IMG]

    LOOKS MEAN!!
