    I placed my order just over 12 weeks ago. Still waiting!

    Just an FYI, I'll be traveling from the East Coast to the Bay Area in 2 weeks. If I haven't received my awesome grille yet I plan to pay you a visit and just stare in your window with disapproval.

    Got to test out how strong this grill is the other day when someone backed into me.:facepalm: Pushed the whole truck back a foot. To my surprise, just made a smudge mark on the powdercoat.. this thing is beefy. :benchpress:

    From what @JLee has said, all current orders (as of 2 weeks ago) should be shipping by the end of this month...

    Finally getting around to posting a picture of mine on here! Got it in last month from JLee and I am extremely happy with it! Already gotten several compliments on it.

    Is it possible to mount the backplate closer to the cut outs to eliminate the shadow effect like in the picture above?

    I think this is as much to do with the angle of the photo as anything. The "shadow affect" isn't noticeable in person IMO. The only part that is noticeable is the part that connects that O's (top and bottom bars that go down to fill the center). Just due to that in itself the Tacoma letters may be better as it would be one "O".

    You could use washers if you like with longer bolts but due to the height of the nutserts they can't be made taller by us.
