Its a Carrige Works grill, I got it from performance products. I think I paid around $185 shipped. I got it when they were having some kind of special. It was pretty easy to install.

Hey, Tacoma915...nice grille. The website says cutting is required to install that grille. Exactly what has to be cut for installation?

That's definitely nice. Is that the brushed or the polished that you got??

I got the polished, because they didnt have any brushed. I just ran the very fine steel wool over it to make it like the brushed one. You have to cut the black bars out. Its not that hard, you just need a dremel and some patience. Oh yea after I cut and did the test fits, I masked off the shell and painted the pieces I cut black to hide the cut marks. Total working time was about 5 hrs including "watching the paint dry". I want to get the bumper grill, but Im gonna be getting a scooped hood soon. I work for a dealer that also owns a toyota dealer. Im getting the hood from certifit and I just got all of the parts for the scoop. All in all Ill probably end up spending close to $300 including paint. Its nice to have the body shop guys owe you favors!

Hey Tacoma915, can you post a pic of your truck at night with the lights on... Im curious to see what the headlight mod looks like on the blue truck... I think it looks badass on a black truck but was not sure how it would look on the speedway blue, my thing is I have the chrome grill, didn't know if I wanted to do this mod or not... Thanks in advance

I have the same color truck with the chrome grille. I have the same billet grille sitting in my garage. I can't wait to put it on, but I just don't know how it would look with the chrome. If anyone's got a pic of that, please share!!
