Billet Grilles

I wanna replace my factory billet grilles. Looking for the steel mesh look. I got a couple questions...

How easy are they to replace? Doesnt seem hard.

Is there any cutting involved?

Do they sell them in packages? I dont want to buy my front, bottom, sides, hood scoop all seperate.

Anyone able to recommend a good place to order this from?

Thanks.

I just replaced my factory grill with a billet. It looks great and was allot easier then I expected. Its kinda scary when your chopping up your factory, but it all come together very well. It is a simple inexpensive way to make a big difference in the appearence of you taco. I got all five pieces on ebay for about $130. Happy hunting

I have seen it done and it looks pretty nice, I know from experience that you could fab your own grill insert, its just gonna take the right tools, materials, and some patience. Try looking on ebay, i have seen what your looking for, for around $150. I have installed a few grill inserts myself and know a few tricks if needed.

Hows it going, as far as cutting the oem grille, exactly what part do you have to cut? The instructions I got are not clear and there aren't any illustrations. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks
