Satoshi or no Satoshi? Rad Red Tacoma

I have a radiant red tacoma (wasnt my first choice but was a hell of a deal), I really like the Satoshi look, but Im not sure how it would look on a Radiant Red Taco. So I figured I'd ask some experts for there opinion. So should I Satoshi or no? Thanks, Zach

Do eet! I was hestitant at first too, but don't regret it at all. Gives the front a unique badass look. I think the Satoshi's look great on any color taco.

I think a shallow Satoshi or just a GrillCraft up front would look great.

See pict above

It would lend well to adding additional driving/fog lights later.

By the way if you are interested in driving/fog lights behind the grill, BAMF is doing a group buy this week for behind the grill light mounts for a great price!

Don't do it. First you got the wrong color for the TACO. Red?

Anyways. . .

Satoshis on the Radiant Red doesn't look good and all.

If I were you and you were going to buy the new IPAD3. Don't. Save the money and put it towards the RBP grille. That sir is the BAMF. It will match your Ed Hardy T-Shirts when you hop out of your truck.

Hope that was helpful. Its Friday, Friday. . . yesterday was thursday and tomorrow is Saturday.

LoL, Cape Codder beat me to the post. I'd say its worth it, but its not everyones cup of tea. Everyone says 'Its overdone'.... I challenge you to drive down your street and find one in your area, much less a few, enough to say its overdone. Sure its done heavily on our forum, but get away from the keyboard and look around, not as many as you think!

Would I do it again? Yep, but I'm honestly considering shaving some off the back side of the grill and making it more shallow. And RAD, you have a satoshi, of sorts! LoL... it started out as one, you may have 'raptored' it by now, but thats not my cup of tea. I want nothing to do with a Raptor Looks good though man, I took alot of ideas from your truck ^_^

Cape Codder, I'll be in Cape Cod next week, FYI






OH, almost forgot, I have a complete set of Fox Shox, and my fronts are cranked for about 2.5", FYI. Probably cranking them for 3" soon and going up to a full 3" in the rear as well. Need to prod Jerry to get those shackles done! For more info and pics, check my sig for build thread.

Not sure if you've made your decision yet, but I figured I'd post a couple more members Rad Reds with Satoshi, for your viewing pleasure.
Most anything's gonna look better than the Tacoma's Stock Grill
I assume you've probably seen this Thread......
"Let's see your Radiant Red Tacoma"
there are numerous examples there

Hi Bri.
I've had nothing but positive comments on my grill, including some of the service reps at my dealership.
And I never see any others around here
Maybe I'll see you among the million tourists, next week.
Your Truck's lookin' good BTW.

I've never cared for red vehicles, maybe with the exception of a few exotic sports cars.
Don't care for any of the other reds they've used on the Tacoma,
but I do have a soft spot for the Radiant Red Tacos.
Just seems to suit the truck.
Probably good it wasn't available when I bought in 2010.


Other Rad Reds:

solus's............solus694's build...









Rez's.............

(Rapter's Style)





venomous x's





And Rad's. early on......and his build thread......The Never Ending R.A.M.F Build. It can Never be Perfect . . .








Just a few Examples
Good luck with your decision.
Whatever you choose, just make it your own, just the way you want it.
Screw what anyone else thinks
