    I'm trying to find a new grill for my 05 Tacoma that doesn't involve any cutting. I would like my current stock grill to stay intact. I've been looking around and have had trouble finding something like this. Any suggestions would be appreciated. (Also I'm aware there are other threads about this but I couldn't find what I wanted on those.)

    You simply replace your entire grill. There’s nothing irreversible about installing it. Remove and store your OE grille.

    You will need to figure out the hood weatherseal. The thread mentioned above has more info. I haven’t installed anything for mine yet because the bug deflector hides the gap where the seal should be. I’ll probably use the Z shaped stuff when I get around to it.
