    wellll I’ve decided to do a little experiment here. Just ordered a knock off grille and raptor style lights. Should be getting it by feb. 20th.
    Stay tuned for pics and review. :popcorn:
    Feel free to ‘FOLLOW’ me :drunk:

    Let’s hear what your experience was with ordering a pro knock off? (Not talking about the sensor malfunctions or anything)

    Did the grille fit right?
    Did you need to repaint it?
    Was it worth it?

    Lol that’s what I kept thinking. 2 weeks ago couldn’t find it for less than 150 anywhere. Even eBay. But now they have it for under 100 everywhere.

    Yes it does. I’ve heard for it to pass inspections during shipment it just says OYOT and the T and A you have to put on yourself. It comes with all the letters. Just those two not mounted.
    I saw a few people say that the T and A are a little diff color so you have to paint them to match if it bugs you.

    I’ll be posting pics of it out of the box plus mounted when I get it.

    Aside from the A at the end being a little bigger (only easy giveaway) it's a great deal.

    There's actually a "Pro grill" knockoff for the 2nd gen, I've been thinking about trying.
