Evening oppo. I have been doing some research regarding a change of heart and future plans of a 4runner. I have learned my lesson in the mini, and am going to resist the urge to performance mod. That hasn’t stopped me from looking at cosmetics....

Brush guards (or roo bars, if you live in magical upsidedown land). Opinions online vary whether they have any real benefit or detrement in a frontal collision. Since my offroading will be limited, I am thinking more of collisions with deer and the occasional prius.

Anyone with any real experience? We need someone like dirt everyday or whoever to mythbust this.
