The guard looks good once installed on my '18 Tacoma! The guard changes the look of the front end and matches the black trim on the fender flares and bumper.
I found the hardest part of the install was mounting the bottom brackets. There is a small plastic splash guard trim piece that is right in the way where the bottom mounting bracket drops below the truck. Once we got that sorted, the install was fairly easy with common hand tools. The TRD Off Road does not have the air dam installed so the steps involving cutting the slits could be skipped in my case.
Also to note, the mesh that sits in front of the truck grill has an opening in front of the Toyota badge. This is where the radar sensor for the pre-collision alert and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is located. I've read that other Ranch Hand grill guards had the mesh over the Toyota badge with the radar sensor and suffered no interference. However, this opening ensures no interference with the radar sensor. So far I have had no issues with the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control in my truck with this grill guard.
Bumper guard is great. Just annoyed me that I have to cut off my front sensors or they continuously go off thinking I’m about to hit something.
havent recieved it yet if you could check and let me know when i will wouid be great . thanks greg order no is 13876
Everything fit well and I was really happy with the quality...the delivery company smashed up my carport cover in my apartment and they were horrible with service but the product itself is great.
First and foremost, read the description. This bumper is HEAVY but also super durable. Comes in a matte black finish so spray paint is needed if you hit something. I get looks everywhere I go and even more compliments on this "Zombie Apocalypse" Bumper
