    It is steadily raining here so my plans of wash-clay bar-wax have flown out the window :(, so my mind has turned to mods for the Taco :D. Does anyone have any experience with www.certifit.com?? I am having a hard time believing that I can get a complete new grille for $55-$60, but would love it if it is true. I realize that it is not OEM, but since I am planning on painting and cutting it all up, I am not sure that's an issue. I really am not liking the chrome on the front of my Taco, and am thinking about getting one color matched and then doing the Satoshi mod. It might be good to have the original stock one so if I sell it, I could go back to that.

    Any input you all may have would be apprecieated.

    Thanks

    I looked into this some as well, and by time you buy the hood and then have it painted its damn near the price of a new hood from Toyota...which would of course be the real deal. Did you find something different?

    well see this guy in Houston quoted me 200 bucks to paint the hood my understanding is that getting it from the stealership or online will not be less than $500. from certifit buying a hood and getting it painted would only cost me about 300 to 350 dollars and if i sell my original one which is scratchless i can get some of my money back...

    - Billstein 5100's all around with OME 885 coil springs. - K&N Air Filter - HID Headlights & Fogs - Kenwood Stereo & Infinity Speakers - CB Radio, - Fog On Anytime mod - Anti Tailgate theft mod. More comming...
    I'll be picking up a Grille from Certifit tomorrow morning, here in San Diego. I was going to buy it from PartsGeek for about $40... BUT Certifit is like 5 miles from my place and the grill is $37 plus tax. So I don't have to worry about it getting damaged during transit or have to wait for it either.

    I'll be using the Certifit grille while I Satoshi my OEM one (i'll be taking my sweet ass time)... Then when I'm all done, i'll be selling it.. Just FYI for anybody that might want to do the same. I work as a shipper so i can guarantee it'll be packaged up REALLY good.

    Will report back on quality of Certifit grille.
