Hey all! Excited to join the forum and see all of your builds and slowly do my own. I just recently bought a new '19 Quicksand Double Cab Long Bed Off-Road Tacoma, and I think the first thing I need to do with it is replace the front bumper with some armor! I live in southwest Colorado, Durango to be specific, and I need some armor to protect my truck from deer (and sometimes elk) as they often get hit here. I've been looking at lots of bumpers, and I think my top choice is Mode's bumper/grille guard because of the price (it comes with all the pieces unwelded, so you save at least $500 compared to others, plus free shipping) the look, and it will definitely save my truck from anything I could hit. I also really like C4's bumper/grille guard, but the low profile and the fact that the bumper is flush with the grille worries me that there's still a possibility of damage to my front end if I happen to hit anything. What's y'all's take on some front end armor? I'd love to also see some pictures of what you guys have! I've attached a couple pictures of Mode's bumper, they didn't actually have any pictures of a Tacoma with their bumper on it; and one of C4's bumper. My favorite look is that the bumper comes all the way up to the headlights, that looks real sweet to me.
