    So I got my taco backed into and now have a reason to look into a new off-road bumper. Any makes or models you guys suggest?

    Not that it helps me for my gen3 but I was looking at who manufactures them. Ive always liked the ARB ones but there are a lot more than I knew of.
    Let use know what you end up doing and show us when it's done.

    I highly recommend ARB! We have always used ARB bumpers and I haven't had any problems. Simple to put on and has saved my butt many times. As stated before there are many different types here's an example.

    That really does look great.

    Good news is it doesn't look like your bumper is damaged at all

    Few scratches on the side but I'll take that over a dent any day. (Quick side note the pod lights and blinkers are a separate set I installed after, if anyone else has this bumper check out Labrak, they make a conversation kit so that you can place those pods instead of regular fog lights)

    Other than the giant dent in the fender and the fact he wants to replace the bumper.

    Not for me. I don't like the bar going across the head light. Maybe the first picture if I saw it in person.

    I don't like the bars really at all but 75% of them have bars and the other hard part is I'm trying to say less then $1100 for the front...

    New twist to this story is I was rear ended Friday so now I'm looking for rear bumper also.

    I totally agree, I got an ARB and I have no regrets. It makes the truck have a more aggressive look, and it damn strong IMG_1179.jpg . I wouldn't recommend anything but ARB
