    Keep in mind this was the first bracket we made so it’s a little rough :D

    If anyone has the file to create this camera bracket, could you send it to me? I have a 3D printer at work and could print it myself.

    I was able to make my 2020 Tacoma sport work with the oem 2020 pro grill. I’ll I had to do was cut the top piece of the original camera bracket. This will give it enough space to allow the camera to slide into the correct position on the grill. Also I added double sided tape on the inside cavity where the camera goes so it will be more secure. Like I said before you do need the oem 2020 pro grill to make it work. It cost me $223 plus $43 for an aftermarket tss sensor cover. After install I got no tss sensor issue at all. I was surprised. upload_2020-4-6_23-16-31.jpgupload_2020-4-6_23-17-16.jpgupload_2020-4-6_23-17-54.jpgupload_2020-4-6_23-17-33.jpg

    Such a shitty place for a camera. With it there you can’t toss on some R4T grille lights. Plus it sticks out so far.

    They could have notched the garnish plate a bit and then flush mounted the camera in the underside of the center bar possibly recessing it through the notched garnish plate in the top center.
    Come on @MESO, make us a good prototype.

    i had no issues with the camera or the tss system. No lights at all. I did buy the tss sensor cover from Amazon. If you look at my post earlier in the thread I posted pics of how I was able to accomplish adding the camera to the grill. The grill I bought was the oem 2020 pro grill. You could use your camera braket that you have now. All you have to do is cut a portion of it in order to make it align with screw hold at the bottom.

    That's exactly how I did mine. Did it the day after I got my truck home from the dealership lol. 7 months later and no sensor issues whatsoever.

    Thanks for the info. Just ordered an OEM grille and the same grille garnish from Amazon. Did you have to modify anything on the pro grille?

    No need to modify the grill at all. Only the camera bracket

    I think I understand now after re-reading all the posts and looking at your pics. you have to cut off the top tab to make the sport camera bracket align with the bottom bracket of the pro grille. you lose the support of the top screw so you added double sided tape to reinforce the camera inside the cutout for the camera.

    why is your camera housing next to the top tab that you cut off? do you have to remove the camera housing too? thanks.

    You Do have to remove the camera housing since the pro grill already comes with its on camera housing. It’s already embedded on the grill.
