So spent the afternoon yesterday installing. It looks great, but after all of the work the lights shake badly while driving. I pretty much installed just like you, with the exception of the metal support bar.
While driving my lights bounce very bad. I can see it, and can imagine that the oncoming traffic can notice as well.
Does anyone have any thoughts?

Yeah, you need the metal bracing. The plastic will flex too much. That's probably where most of your bounce is coming from.

Yes, but mine also had 2 threaded posts that fit thru the mesh and connected with small bolts. Held it on tight.

Thanks! I liked it when I had it but went back to the stock grille because I am going to eventually install my Nfab light bar. Cost was about $300 total.

I haven't heard seen on but I know they were looking for an '10 Tacoma to test fit the new grille.

I wouldn't be surprised if they created a recessed two part kit.
