The grill looks great. IMO a BHLM would look awesome on your truck with the grill, and loose the bug deflector.

nice job, how long did it take you to do it and where you get the paint to match?

No, keep it if you like it. I have one and I like the looks of it. (Although I have seen many comments here about people not liking them)

it took me about 2 days to do but it was my first satohi grill. itll probably take me shorter if i had done it before. ran around a whole day looking for the right color paint and come to find out that autozone(or any autoparts store) carries alot of the OEM toyota colors. so if anyone wants or need anytouch pant in the small paint brush or spray can. try your local autoparts store.
here is the cani used. it even has toyota's color caode on the tag

with all do respect man,
I have to say ONLY 2 things would make that grille 100% better,
1) being dessert storm mica
2) being on my truck
But since the 2 things wont happen,
very sharp man, i really like it, well done
