Unique Grill Emblem Replacement

Happy New Year All!

New Taco owner here looking to make my truck uniqe, but not totally over the top.

Definitely doing the de-badge thing. Researched TW and you guys have great instructions on how to remove badging and stickers. I'm removing all the emblems, but leaving the TRD Sport stickers on the rear fenders.

So the only issue I have is with the emblem on the factory grill. I know a lot of you guys temporarily remove it and paint it black. I want to remove it and replace it with something different like a skull.

I did try a TW search on non-factory grill replacement emblems but came up empty. Anybody out there know of any vendors that manufacture different designs other than the factory emblem that will fit in the space left void?

Thanks for ther referral. Is metalmiller a forum member or a vendor? I looked over the list of vendors and didn't come across the name.

Any help you can provide on a way to contact metalmiller is appreciated!
