    So I have a 2017 white Tacoma. Want to get a new bumper. I’ve been looking at a few but I want a bumper that’s under $2000 and has sometime of bar that goes in front, kind of like a bull bar. If you have any picture or reccomandations please post them. Thank you. Heres a couple I’ve been looking at.

    Subbed. I have been thinking about this myself, but my white Taco is a 2018, so I also have to take TSS into account. There doesn't seem to be a lot of build threads that definitively say "this works without screwing up the TSS system"

    I don't know about the two bumpers in the original post, but I know for sure the ARB summit bar definitely doesn't screw up the TSS system. Another benefit is that it's designed to work with the airbags. The downside is that it makes an already long nose longer. I think it looks pretty good though and have been happy with mine.

    Brand new to the Forum, purely by looks I would go with #1 UNLESS you have big tires as the 2nd one just looks way too big. Just my 2Cents.

    Hope you realize you're not just buying a bumper. Those things weigh 100+ lbs. This means you need to beef up your suspension as well. So factor that into your budget.
