Video Transcript for Aries Pro Series Grille Guard with Mesh LED Cover Plate Review

Adam: Hi, everyone, Adam, with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be talking about the line of ARIES Pro Series Grill Guards, with the Mesh LED Cover Plate. So what's going to set these apart from some of those other Grill Guards that you may get, is just the fact that it gives you such a clean spot to put your light bar. You don't have to worry about putting something on your roof or anything like that. It's just going to look super clean. And just the fact that it looks really, really cool, in my opinion.

It has a nice finish to it. It's little bit different. It's kind of a gritty look and texture. It's going to give you that rough and tough off-road look, straight out of the box. And nice thing about this is, it comes completely assembled.

You don't have to put anything together and everything that they do, they weld everything at the manufacturer.So you don't have to worry about anything like that. It's going to be extra, extra strong. Comes with a inch and a half thick steel tubing that comes all the way around. So it's going to protect your headlights, and of course protect your light bar as well. So all the mounting hardware is going to be included.

So we're going to get a bracket, some bolts and stuff like that. But the cool thing about it is we do not have to drill or anything like that. No cutting, no drilling, it's all just going to bolt right up, got brackets down here. But we also have brackets up top too. We're going to have four different points of contact, and it can be right here.

And that is what's going to give us the super, super sturdy.I'm really, really pushing on this thing, like you see, a little bit of inaudible 00:01:29 but I mean, I'm putting all my weight on it and we don't see a whole lot of movement.We're not going to accidentally damage our headlights or anything like that. And the nice thing is too, it's not just a universal guard. This one is specifically for Tacoma here, but we have a fit guide on our website. So put your vehicle in the fit guide, and then you're going to be redirected to the Grill Guard that's going to fit your vehicle specifically. The mounting hardware, and brackets might be a little bit different, but that's always good because sometimes when it's just kind of a universal fit, it's not for your specific vehicle with the line of the Pro Series ARIES, it's going to be for your vehicle. So just use our fit guide, just to get the right kit. So our bracket for a light bar does come with our kit and the mounting hardware as well. You just got to make sure that once you get your bracket, just do a couple of measurements just to make sure exactly which light bar you want to go with. But it'll just sit right back there in that plate.And we can remove this plate as well. And if for some reason it gets scratched or anything like that, we have replacements for those too, on our website. But I can just only imagine how cool this thing is going to look on the inside there, and my. Giving my two cents about light bars, I don't necessarily love them when they're way up top there just because it kind of gets in other drivers eyes as well. So keeping it low is always nice, but then you got to, you just spent a lot of money on a light bar. You don't want it to get damaged. With this Mesh Plate, I don't think we'll have much issues having any damage to the front of our light bar. And that's always a plus. So if you guys think that this Grill Guard is a little wide, maybe a little bit more aggressive than what you really wanting to put on, they also have some bull guards, which pretty much what that's going to be is kind of the same mounting process down here.But it's only going to stay in front of your grill. It's not going to branch out to your headlights. So if that's something that you would like, those also look pretty cool on the website. There's some that come in a aluminum, but then others that just come in the black as well. So if that's something that you think will look a little bit better on your vehicle, go on etrailer and grab one that you think you like best. So that pretty much does it for most of the features that this Grill Guard offers. But I'm actually curious to see what it looks like outside. So we're just going to go ahead and drive it around. And I'm going to look at it in the daylight.So a lot of you guys we're wondering if it's going to mess with your TSS sensor on the front emblem. As of right now, we have it enabled. We have sensitivity all the way up, and I'm actually going over the whole seven miles an hour thing, which it should be beeping if it was interfering. But I honestly don't think we'll have any issues. I'm going to go a little bit quicker on our parking lot here to see if anything happens. But as of right now, I think we're in the clear. That's about 25, is when it's going to really kick in and nothing. So if you guys are a little nervous about buying a brush guard, this one right here is not going to interfere with that TSS sensor. All in all, I'd definitely say I'm a fan of the look. Being in there really doesn't do it justice seeing it out here, even though it's an overcast day.It definitely goes good with the color of the truck. And also just kind of the sporty look of the truck. It's definitely something that I would notice if I was driving past the truck that had a cool guard on this, but one thing that would honestly make it a lot cooler, is just putting a light bar in there. But other than that, there's not really anything else I really need to go over. But again, this was the ARIES Pro Series front Grill Guard. And hopefully that this one is honestly one that you guys would want to put on your truck. So I'm going to go ahead and just head out. Again, I'm Adam with etrailer, and thanks for watching.

Protect your vehicle's front end, and give it an aggressive aftermarket look with this steel grille guard. Middle crossbar has an integrated mesh cover plate so you can add a single-row LED light bar. Bolt on installation with included hardware.

Easy installation which only took approximately 1 1/2 hours by myself. Longest part of install was unwrapping the guard from the packaging material. Still had some minor paint scraps and may rust during winter. Shipping was quick, arrived in 5 days and freight company was great to deal with.




by:

The Grill Guard looks great however it does cause an issue with the Toyota Safety sensor. The grill guard blocks the sensor and this causes the safety feature to not work. After driving for a few moments the sensor will go back on But then will shortly go back off, everything else if great.


Comments
For this and most after market grills guards they may interfere with forward-facing cameras or sensors.

  • Will Aries Grille Guard Fit with TRD Skid Plate on 2019 Toyota Tacoma
    From what I can tell it looks like the mounting locations for the Aries Pro Series Grille Guard # AAP2068 will be in different spots than where your TRD Aluminum skid plate sits. What I recommend doing is checking out the linked installation video we did on a 2019 Toyota Tacoma and checking that against where your TRD plate is sitting just to verify on your end.

  • Will Aries Pro Series Grille Guard Interfere with Camera and Sensor on 2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD PRO
    Great question, and it's one we get fairly often when it comes to grille guards. From what I can see it looks like the camera and sensor you're talking about may not be covered by the grille guard, but the guard may still interfere with those functions since you'll be putting a big metal piece directly in front of them. We had the opportunity to install the Aries Pro Series Grille Guard with Mesh LED Cover Plate # AAP2068 on a 2019 Toyota Tacoma which I'm linking an installation video...

  • 2018 Toyota Tacoma Grill Guard Compatible with TSS Sensor
    I actually had the chance to install and test out the Aries Pro Series Grille Guard with Mesh LED Cover Plate # AAP2068 on a similar 2019 Toyota Tacoma and can confirm it does not interfere or trigger the TSS (Toyota Safety Sense) radar sensor, located behind the Toyota emblem. Even with the sensitivity turned all the way up, it did not flash any kind of message on the dashboard or produce any beeping sounds at about 25 mph. According to the owner's manual, the TSS sensor, which comes stock...
