    I must be the only one who like's the look of a black push pumper / grille guard on trucks because I can't find one for my 2020 Toyota Tundra.

    I'm looking for just the center piece of your everyday brush guard, like what you see on most police cars or the General Lee from the Dukes of Hazzard, I've looked high and low for this thing but no luck. I'm caving in and asking for your help!

    I don't want a bull bar, I don't want a brush guard that wraps around the headlight for protection, and I don't want to replace my front bumper, I just want the piece protecting the grille. I'll attach some photo's of what I'm wanting but on other cars. Or you can look up some examples like GO Rhino 3100 series without brush guards, Westin Push Bumper Elite, Warn Trans4mer without the side pieces. They're named a few different ways like, push bumper, push bar, and grille guard.

    If we can't find what I'm looking for, what's my next option? Buy a push bumper / grille guard and fabricate my own brackets to mount onto my truck? Buy a brush guard that's made for my truck and chop off the headlight protectors or "brush guards"? Find a brush guard that has the headlight protectors bolted to the grille guard and not welded? All the brush guards I've been seeing, that fits my Tundra, have the headlight protectors welded onto the grille guard.

    I drive a 2020 Tundra, CrewMax, Platinum, 4WD.

    So its basically a tall bullbar? Looks like it only mounts up under the front bumper. Per a quick Google (since I had never heard of this before and was curious). I do see that there aren't a lot of options. You might have to message one of the companies that does the whole front (ie has the headlight protection) and see if they can make it without. They might discount the cost since there is less material and labor and then you aren't having to cut and paint something you paid for.

    Not exactly what you want, but here is something kinda close

    Function before sparkle.
    You may be seeing fitment after 2017 issues because of Toyota safety sense. If the bar blocks the sensor, which is behind the grill logo, it will trigger errors.

    Something like this will block the sensor.

    which is why Rough Country or Westin make their options shorter like this:

    Most push bumper mounts are weak. Bite the bullet and go with a Ranch Hand. Imho.
