    depending on color and price I would think about it. If they are all orange colored then probably not. I dunno.

    From what people are saying t should fit right into a 12+ grille shell. But then you'd have a useless orange grille piece you paid for just sitting around.

    I might be wrong but I thought I read that the TRD pro will also be available in white, black, and "inferno".

    True and if you have a different color tacoma you can just use yor own shell and sell someone the color matched one who has that color.

    Lucky me, I got black. I just hope the dealer doesn't give me a hard time for not having the right "model". STFU and take my money! what is so hard about that!

    Is that supposed to be a 2015 model. A friend of mine got one with the light bar on the bed of the truck and the grill looks more like an off road Taco than a sport grill. His is a 2014.

    It shouldn't be too hard to come by once they're released. I hope.

    Right now it is fresh for the eyes so guys are all hopped up about it. Once everyone can get them and we have all looked at it 100x they will fall out of favour. Homertaco has put some raptor grilles together that are far more striking than that hunk of plastic.

    Completely agree....I don't think it really looks any better than the standard grill, but people will be scrambling to get one because it's "different" from stock.

    Im getting there......
    Looks alot like the mid 90s land cruiser grill which I personally feel was the ugliest stylizing update to the cruiser. I would much prefer a baja, if I were going to get a special edition taco.

    I agree but HomerTaco doesn't make grills for the 2012-2014.

    I was hoping that i would like the grill more than i do but i dont...too bad, i do want TOYOTA on the front rather than the emblem.

    Once i see it on a white truck ill decide. but i really dont like this new reddish-orange color option.

    other than that my truck already has all these options aside from the grill as part of the "trail teams" package.

    Yeah and if he did, and no offense to Homer, they'd cost you an arm and a leg because of all the extra fabrication that needs to be done.

    I toyed with the idea of a mesh grille, but to be honest I think Toyota did a pretty good job on the 12+ grille. The more I see the TRD-Pro grille, the less I like it, like it has a night brace on its mouth or something.
