    After an encounter with a deer on the way to work earlier this week, I'm in need of a new front bumper. Right now, I'm going back and forth between N-Fab M-RDS and Westin Outlaw. What are the opinions on these.

    Maybe get one with more coverage just in case you hit another deer

    I have neither bumper so mine truly is just an opinion.....and not much help either way, because either one looks good.
    just keep in mind with either of these options you will more than likely need to get a light bar as well or you will have a big gaping hole eyesore, or have a custom fill plate made. if it was me i guess I would get which ever one would get to my front door first :D

    I'm running the westin outlaw on the front. Really like it, just get a friend to help you install, makes it way easier to get it lined up right. I did have a local guy add hoops to it for a little more protection (mainly because I like the look hahaha)

    Yeah man saw your original post when you hit the deer, sucks that happened, glad you and the truck survived though. Either bumper option I believe look great and you will be happy with.

    Wow I like that barricade front. Wonder if one could incorporate the newer model safety sensors?

    I have no double you could. I have bought Barricade bumpers before on a Jeep Wranger and was satisfied with them.

    Extreme Terrain also sells 3 different versions of this same bumper, some with integrated LED lights.

    If you did a plasti dip black on the chrome pieces of your grill and scoop and added the barricade bumper it would look pretty darn nice for not a lot of $$$$

    It looks like it has empty holes where the bumper sensors would go

    My grill has to replaced also. I was already thinking of going with black.

    I'm on Extreme Terrain site looking at the Barricade bumper and it has this in the description - Technical Note. If your Tundra is equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control and/or Forward Collision Warning Sensors, this Bumper will interfere with the functions of those sensors.

    Arent these sensors in the grill and by the rear view mirror?

    For around the same price as the nfab, and still holding to the prerunner tubular look, the C4fab hybrid is a great option. They also have another with more armor coverage. Of the two you posted, I like the Westin more as it comes up a little higher.

    If that had been available when I got the westin I would have gotten it for sure. It's what I will go to down the road when I sell this one eventually

    They are. Maybe the bumper sticks out further in front, thus throwing off the distance measurements?

    It sure looks like the sonar sensor holes are there

    Getting ready to pull the trigger and order the Extreme Terrain bumper. How concerned should I be about the weight of it? This one is 95 lbs.

    I don't think 95lbs will be a concern at all......just do a before install measurement of center hub to fender and an after install measurement, doubt there will be much of a difference. please post pics once you get the bumper installed!

    That N-Fab is hard to beat. I think it looks best without the mesh on the corners!

    Question:
    where / how do you mount the pre-collision sensor? The one behind the Toyota logo
    Answer:
    You can not use it. We are stuck with it because it cost twice as much to return it, as it did to buy it.

    Cement is only available to order in the Pro grill. Will I need a TSS relocation bracket for 2019 Pro Grill?
