    Just purchased a Sport version color matched grille from Toyota already painted to match and swapped out the grille. Took all of 5-10 minutes.

    Thanks! It was $175, there is a thread around here somewhere where you can order them. I'd like to do the rear bumper as well, but I am told that you can't order that pre-painted like the grille, you have to either paint your chrome or order a black bumper and have it painted. Doubtful I will find someone local that actually wants to swap a painted for a chrome...

    As for the chrome grille I removed, haven't thought about it much yet. Was going to keep it just in case this one gets damaged worn, or maybe make a custom grille out of it.

    Nice! Yea if they just made the offroad available with color matched grille and bumper and the option for hood scoop, I think ALOT of people would prefer it over the sport..
