    Smoked tail lights. 20% tint.
    Hey all,

    I bought a 2014 4Runner SR5 back in June. Dark grey (graphite) exterior with black/grey leather. Smoked the rear lights, tinted windows, gonna plasti dip the logos...maybe go black rims. Next step is to get a brush guard, but I have no idea what to get or where to look. I want one that is black (to keep the theme going), extends around the headlights, and maybe has options for additional lights on it. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    A few things here and there. Still dreaming up stuff
    This is my .02.

    If you are thinking this just go with a new front bumper man. It offers far better protection if you use it ever. Not only that you can put more stuff on this too. Winning

    I installed a Vanguard bull bar with skid plate on my 2015 that protects the bumper and the vulnerable area before the first engine skid plate where Toyota only has a plastic piece. You can also mount extra driving lights on the bar. It is chrome plated stainless steel.viking bull bar and plate.jpg

    just spent 8 hours detailing wife's 4runner and showed her a new indentation in the front license plate.

    Now she's ready for the bull bar....have not found one I liked and don't have funds for a full bumper...this viking looks promising. You did your own install?
    I will now look and see if they have it in black.....

    I am very happy with the construction and quality of the Vanguard bull bar I installed. It only comes in chrome stainless steel, but you can paint it or powder coat if you like. I originally thought I wanted it to be black, but now I am quite happy with the chrome look. I have considered coating it with Plasti Dip because it can re removed, if you change your mind later. We will soon be distributing the product in our store and I will use it to black out some areas and emblems. I will post this in the future. I have recently added a twelve light LED bar on the bull bar that has six flood lamps and six spot lamps. This works very well and looks good on the bar because it is more modern looking than conventional driving lights plus brighter.
