    2010 Tacoma 2wd. Does anyone put push bars on their 2wd trucks? 20170902_175108.jpg 20170902_175100.jpg

    People mount them to any drive. They still look terrible and cause more damage to the user's vehicle no matter the drive. It's your vehicle though.

    Welcome to the forum.
    Like whippersnapper02 said, people put them on 2wd and 4wd.
    In my opinion, I wouldn’t put one on a 2wd. But that’s just me. It’s your truck.
    Go for it if you like them.

    I don't know. I think it gives them a tough guy look and yea they can cause more damage in a heavy crash but they will protect from minor hits like shopping cards and stuff that would be below your deductible. 20180426_170517.jpg

    Yeah. I have a bull bar. They will definitely cause more damage at high speed. But shopping carts beware.

    So are you saying 2wd Tacoma’s can’t push shopping carts? SMH

    You need 4x4 and ECT to push a shopping cart. It works even better with crawl control.

    When I bought mine it had an aluminum one on it. Dang thing scares me cause it is so springy, like it was improperly mounted. I have no clue about how to remove it. I do admit, if it had a better front end I'd get a Police Style brush bar (I woork security, so mounting amber/green lights on it would work nicely for my job).

    They unbolt fairly easily. Just gotta get down there with a socket set and look for the bolts. Take them out it’ll fall off.

    I got mine off, plan to take it to an offroad shop or EV outfitter to have them mount it properly. I highly doubt it was mounted properly cause it was springy.
