    i just ordered a 'D' so i'm biased. i also like B almost as much, but in black.

    that vertical grill (C) is hideous. why didn't they do a true vertical and just cut the edges instead of cramming them in at those angles?
    never seen that before.
    no offense if ya liked that..but that's a bad version of what could be done.

    recessed is good too- i don't know yet if i want to cut my stock grill out or not
    i paid $156 (170 something with shipping)
    here: http://www.eautoworks.com/product-Grillcraft-100537.htm
    best i could find online (usually 190-200$) though i heard someone got one for 130.

    stupid question: does spraypainting your radiator black effect it's performance? i may need to do that too.

    I personally can't stand most aftermarket grills. They all remind me of G Unit.

    The only ones I like are the grillcraft type. But thats just my opinion.

    my understanding is it will. if it's not an exact fit up front, i guess i'll do it recessed in the back, or resell it here to an 07 owner.
    many sites STILL don't even list 08 tacoma parts...but i thought 05 through 08 were identical.

    I have not seen a diff in temp since painting the radiator black. I also relocated the horns lower and out of sight to complete the look
