    I'm new here, sorry if this has already been asked. I have a 2021 TRD off road that has the radar sensor thing in the front grill. I want to install a brush guard like I did on my Tacoma, but I cant seem to find anyone who makes one that wont interfere with the front sensor. Has anyone had luck finding a company that makes one yet? Thanks John

    Thinking out loud - if you can't find one . Purchase one in raw steel. Have your local fabricator modify to your needs. Then powder coat.

    I looked up what you said but just see bull bars, I was looking for a full brush guard type. Thanks though for the reply.

    I too was looking and that is why I decided on the Rhino. I called several suppliers and they all said the same thing. Nothing available or could not confirm theirs would work. May have to wait a few years until they design new bars they are compatible.

    Just an FYI, the feedback on brush guards/bull bars is that if you get in an accident, all they end up doing is causing more damage to your vehicle then you would have without it. Just something to keep in mind!

    Thanks, hopefully I wont be in any accidents. I mostly want it to keep other cars away when I'm in my work parking lot lol, as cars get dinged there quite a bit. Work on a tourist island w/ lost of older people and tourists in golf carts.

    I talked to Westin today, 04/05/21, about their Westin Sportsman Grill Guard # 40-3825. It does block the radar from working correctly on my 2020 4Runner TRD. BUT they are working on a new grill that will NOT cause problems for the 2020 4Runner TRD. They could not say when the new grill will be available.
