Merideth: If you need that extra layer of protection for the front end of your 2016 or newer Tacoma, but you don't wanna go swapping the front bumper, this Barricade Modular Brush Guard in black will be a great pick. Now, not only will this do a great job at protecting your Tacoma's front end, but this will also add that off-road or more heavy-duty styling to your build, and match with any other heavy-duty components.Now, what makes this stand apart from the rest is the modular design where you're able to take off the headlight guards, making it great if you want the flexibility to run this without the headlight guards until you need them, or just to access the headlights for better maintenance. Now, as you can see, because this is modular, it's broken into a bunch of pieces right now on the table, but this will feature a full coverage design with an upper bar, a mid-bar, and a lower bar adding that additional protection to any head-on obstacles, especially if you're out on the trail.Now, the headlight guards will also do a great job at protecting from any kick-up or debris coming in contact with the headlights, keeping them in mint condition. Now, this is also going to feature light mounting points on the middle bar here, so you can customize this to your personal preference when adding any accessory lighting to your rig. Now, this will be tough made of a heavy-duty tubular steel construction, which will be a bit more durable than stainless options, even though it is a little bit heavier. Now, this will also be fully welded, so you can count on this to provide a lot of rigidity, and hold up if you do ever come in contact with anything.Now, the black powder coat on top will also protect the steel underneath from rusting and, of course, provide more of that heavy-duty look. And I do like that it has a semi-gloss appearance to it. That's gonna give it more of a premium or finished appearance. Not to mention, unlike other solution, this won't require any modification to install this on your Tacoma. Now, this will come in at roughly $650, being more of an affordable choice for a brush guard compared to others like it. Now, what I think stands out most is the tough steel construction being able to handle really whatever gets in its way, and the fact that this is going to be modular while providing it that strength.Now, not a lot of options provide that flexibility, making this a great choice if that's the kind of benefit you're looking for, for your adventures. Install will be a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, taking you about two hours to get the job done. At this point, we can head over to the shop, and check out a detailed breakdown of what that install looks like step by step. So, that's gonna wrap it up for me. Let's go ahead and get into it.Man: Tools you're gonna need for this install include a 3/8 impact, electric ratchet, clip tool, 17, 16, and 10-millimeter sockets, and a 16-millimeter wrench. What's up, guys? Today, we're gonna be installing a brush guard on our Tacoma, so let's get started. So, first, we're gonna be taking off our grille. There's two 10-millimeter screws that you're gonna take out, and two push pins on either side. Now, using your 10-millimeter socket, we can loosen up these two bolts. Now, using your clip removal tool, we're gonna take out these two pins. And now we can just pull out our grille.Now, we're gonna take off our lower valance using these screws. We're gonna use our 10-millimeter socket to take them off. Now, we're gonna remove the two screws on the inside of the valance using your 10-millimeter socket. And you can repeat that process on the other side. So, now we're gonna mount up our bracket. We're gonna insert our stud plate through this hole up here. Grab your clip retainer, thread it on, so the stud doesn't go anywhere. There we go. And now we're gonna remove this bolt using your 17-millimeter socket.Now we can insert our bracket. Put your bracket in the stud, and you can rethread in that bolt. Just tighten that up a little bit first. And then going on the stud, it's gonna be washer, lock washer, and your 16-millimeter nut. So, now using your 16-millimeter socket, we can tighten this down. And then tighten this bolt down with your 17-millimeter socket. And then you can repeat that process on the other side.So, now in front of the radiator, we're gonna take our stud plate and roughly around here, there's gonna be a hole where you're gonna insert the stud. Then you're gonna take your bracket, insert it through, go in your stud, and the sequence is gonna go washer, lock washer, and nut. And now you're gonna take your 16-millimeter socket, and we're gonna tighten that down. So, don't tighten it up all the way because we have some adjusting to do once the bumper comes on. I'm gonna tighten it down, and you repeat that process on the other side.So, now we're gonna install our push bars. You're gonna align these three holes in the brackets up with the push bars. Insert your bolt. And the sequence goes washer, lock washer, and nut. And before we tighten these down, we're gonna line up the top bracket. Same sequence, washer, lock washer, and your nut. Now we're gonna tighten that down using your 16-millimeter socket and 16-millimeter wrench. And now you can repeat that process on the other side.Now we're gonna slide in our center mount brush guard, and line up with the holes on the push bar. We're gonna take our bolt and push them through, washer, lock washer, and your nut. Washer, lock washer, and nut. And we can tighten them down. And you can repeat that process on the other side. So, now we're gonna take our center brush mount guard and slide it into place. You can grab a bolt and washer. Then you're gonna take your headlight guard and line them up with all the holes. Take your bolt and washer, put it through. Then you can get a buddy to help you push everything into place with your washer, washer, crush washer, and then your nut. All right.Then for the bottom two, washer, bolt, washer, crush washer, and your nut. Then washer and bolt, washer, crush washer, and your nut. Then we can tighten them all down using your 16-millimeter socket and 16-millimeter wrench. Now you repeat that process on the other side. So, before we install our grille, you're gonna wanna go ahead and tighten down all your hardware, and we can reinstall the grille. You're gonna slide it down through here. So, now we can go ahead and reinstall our two 10-millimeter screws. Then using your 10-millimeter socket, we can tighten them down. And last, you have your two push pins. We're gonna put in here and over here. So, that's gonna wrap up our install on our Barricade Modular Brush Guard in black for your 16' and newer Tacoma.
