    I posted this under OUCHHHH!!! but then i decided that this title might get more results.

    Well I was on my way back from my buddys house last night and this happned ......:mad::eek:(see attachment)... Now the only question is since this is a street queen should i just go OEM, ARB, Brushguard? and do you think i can talk the body shop into putting in an aftermarket grill (inshurance expence of course)? Tell me what you think...

    well since you have a nice off road rig and the taco will be a mall crawler, then I would recommend staying with something light weight. You don't want to kill you milage on a street use taco with an aftermarket bumper. Just my $.02
