Nope... just get one of these really big plate bumper and it should get the job done pretty good... I lives in Brooklyn and so far it's served me good and yes I park my car on the street.

Never been a big fan of bull bars, with minor collision they usually take entire front out... including a hood. There is not enough support on the bottom mounting points to sustain even minor impact without folding the bar. They look cool though :)

It adds unnecessary weight to a vehicle where MPG is key. If it was a non-hybrid RAV4, then maybe, but not in chrome, I hate chrome, I like all black and what is popular right now.

Good luck!
Peace!:nerd

One would need to do a lot of reinforcing of the unibody substructure so that a bull bar wouldn't bend upon impact and take out much of what it is supposed to protect, especially for a later generation RAV. But if I recall, at least a couple of owners (maybe in Australia) have installed them and they have been effective.
