    I have a 2006 Taco and an having trouble finding an aftermarket grill. I'm looking for something that doesn't cut my factory grill and is a grill replacement if possible. I don't want the emblem to be visible and want either the mesh or the billet style. Doesn't anyone know of any like this because my local truck acc. place cant find any for my specific truck.

    Hey MaxTacoma check out this brand TRENZ by Lund. I thought I saw it surfing the web.
    hope it helps.

    The emblem that you see in the corner of that grill is optional. I never install the manufacturer's emblems for several reasons. First is that they dont pay me to advertise their products. Second reason is that the manufactures name on anything installed detracts from the appearance of the truck. Placing a TRD emblem is part of the Toyota theme and therefore does'nt detract or ruin the appearance.

    If you have time to wait, I will see what I can get or what is available from the Toyota dealership that I work for.

    However I did come across this on ebay which just might be what your looking for: I inserted a pic of one emblem in this thread, there are approx 53 to look at in the link below.

    Hey sunruner19 I like that TRD emblem you have. Did you replace the Toyota emblem on the grill ? if not where did you install it?

    I was just listing emblems that I did find on ebay so far, for that guy that was thinking of installing a grill. I am looking to replace the emblems on my truck with something different to make my truck more unique.

    The TRD emblem in that pic looks like it would be a direct replacement for the toyota emblem in the stock grill. Emblem measures 2" x 3" and is
    Item number: 220102850998 on ebay.

    Hey Sunruner, is there a way you can get the emblem on this website?
    www.trdparts.jp/release/06-emblem.html
    Its in Japanese so I dont know how to get a hold of those people but its the best looking emblem I have seen. Since you work for Toyota I thought you might know.

    from what i understand no company makes to many grills that you are talking about i bought an billet T REX grill and had to cut my old one out but if you look at my photo in the gallary it looks very nice so you may have to wait if you want a chrome one.
