First of all, i LOVE your grille dude, looks really nice. Second, i need to get a grille like that sometime in the future and i'm like you, i love the red TRD emblem in the corner, definately the way to go. You're truck looks sharp as is, if i were you i'd wait and get the TRD emblem. Plus, i think the "Tacoma" badge on the side may be a little big and look clunky. Just wait till you can get the TRD emblem, it will look better. until then you still have one hell of a good looking truck!

Love the grill look. I like that you didn't mod the bottom one, I think this actually looks better. How difficult was the install?

Did you cut out the original "grill"? That part would scare the heck outa me because after that there is no going back

Also, how are you planning to mount the new badge?

Thanks,

Ted

I'm with you... I LOVE that Grill but I HATE the thought of cutting out the old grill. It's like you spent money to cut it up and can't go back.

I will probably get that grill and just kick myself the whole time I'm installing it... that or I will get the Lund solid plastic cover that bolts on

Yeah, I think im going to have to break down and buy one myself. I need to find a good badge, however. I like the TRD idea, but red wouldnt look that great with the color of my truck.

I like this one though -- http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TRD-C...spagenameZWDVW

That is why I bought a second grill to mod, and I am going to keep my original - original.

i agree, i like the stock bottom grill. if you use a billit grill then it looks good to do the bottom too, but mesh looks good with stock bottom

I like that one, but personally i think red would look just as good on the indigo ink... mabye, i'm not good with matching, i still think brown and black looks cool together....

Yeah to cut or not to cut

i had a hard time w/ it but finaly i jsu liked the grille so much i decided to cut it out the whole thing comes off w/ two screws and two pop out things just use a flat head or a knife and pop them up first a lot easier to cut w/ die grinder though it was a pain to line it up as it bends to fit jus right follow the instructions and it should take more than an hour i did take one of the horns off and painted my radiator flat black i would like to relocate the horns but they are connected to the air bag sensor and i cant move that but it sound so weak w/ one horn maybee new trcker horn or sumthin cant realy see it from my pics but im anal about the hole truck and oh yeah i used a tiny drill bit drilled hole behind the tacoma emblem and wired it to the grille in lower right hand corner looks coo l for a minute but im gonna get the special edition as a soon as possible thanks again for all the props
