    thinking about adding a RC Bull bar! Will it affect my sensor in the front grill? I think it’s the cruise control and precollison sensor!

    @jaredmillerdvm
    The points of attachment and fasteners for most bull bars are week and down underneath the frame.
    The result is that on impact with another vehicle or obstacle, the bull bar folds backwards and compounds the damage rather than reducing it. Additionally, clearance and approach angle are reduced. Lastly you are adding weight without gaining any benefit.

    This is why these are frequently getting negative reviews

    There’s several. Look at Ranch Hand, but be prepared to add serious weight to the front end. These are built to take a deer hit

    There’s a lot of nicely built winch bumpers on the market. Google Tundra winch bumpers, and start doing comparisons. Looks, fit, weight & shipping.
    Review some of the build threads here and ask the owners for feedback.
    If you live in or near a major metropolitan area you can probably pick one up and avoid shipping costs
    I prefer to “go stealth”, so have a hidden winch mount.
