@ 757 Taco, I'm going to install tonight. I'll have a post install pic tonight or tomorrow. So far very impressed with the fit and finish of the grillcraft! Cutting out the center of the grill can be a PITA if you don't have optimal tools... All i had was a sawsall and a dremel with a high speed cutting wheel, got it cut out in a half hour but not as precise as I would like... Everything lined up and bolted in perfectly. Should be a simple swap with the old grill tonight, after I paint the rad and interior grill area black...

Cheers,
~M

Here's an installed picture. Sorry for the phone camera quality... I went to the carwash and forgot i was going to paint the radiator and post grill area when I got home so that is still on the list to do but it doesn't look terrible without it painted. Also my horns are going to get re-located, they look stupid back there...

Cheers,

that's really cool to hear, I had a great experience as well, and I'll be sticking with the product on any vehicle I have.

Just ordered one of these the other day, columbus day sale at autoanything has them down to $161 with free shipping. How come every post I've seen with GC MX, people are cutting their grills when the ad says no cutting? I've accepted that cuts are going/need to be made, but curious to know how GC recommends install without cutting.

Seen this, my question really is, was this meant to be installed on top of the existing grill? Is that why grillcraft says "no cutting required?" I just think its misleading to say no cutting but then give instructions that say here's how to cut out this whole chunk. I think it looks better cut out and thats how I will do mine but still misleading.

i see what you're saying. i didn't know Grillcraft billed it as 'no cutting required'. i'm not sure if you can get the grill on without cutting. i did some test fitting before making cuts but don't recall whether the Grillcraft butts up against the existing Tacoma grill prior to cutting. Like you mentioned, it would definately look silly if you don't cut. Besides, where would your lights go?
