    was the grill recessed or flush with the rest of the grill

    Badges were probably custom fitted to it

    Well this is the standard Grille-Craft, I added my own emblem. Get the blank one and find the emblem you want then add it. I don't know of any with the Toyota emblem installed.

    Is that the black or the chrome on yours? I don't know what the standard color is... you have the choice of the two. Yours looks black.

    i think it was recessed a lil bit i dont remember for sure. i searched again and still cant find it so im thinkin it was probably a grillcraft with the emblem added like harris.jasonm said. i think i will be ordering one when i get paid. then im starting my 6" lift fund!!

    "Is that the black or the chrome on yours? I don't know what the standard color is... you have the choice of the two. Yours looks black."

    Yeah I have the black one. If you get the silver one then you will have to paint the small vents on the outside to make it look right. All you get in the center grille. The quality of the Grille-Craft is awesome though.

    Ok kwel... I'm wanting the black. Was it hard to install? Like having to cut and everything? How long it took you from start to finish?

    Hey but I am pasting the info I put on thread "New Grille!!!" right after I installed mine. Let me know if you have any questions. As for the time, I did mine in an hour and a half or so. Allow yourself some time and on a scale of 1-10 the install in about a 4.

    "Hey bud I just thought I would chime in about the grille install. I just put mine in a few weeks ago, as for wanting to paint the backdrop black and moving the horns thats the only way you will be happy with the install. As for wanting to install the burlap well that will only haunt you in the future. Get some masking tap and some old news papers and tape everything off good (take your time) and spray light coats. As for leaving the factory center peace installed, I doubt you will like the look. If you do not have access to any fancy tools simply swing by your local auto or hardware store and get a hacksaw blade (no saw, just the blade) tape around the base of the points where you will need to cut so that you will not scar up the inside and you will find that in about 45 min. you will be able to cut them out nice and flush. If you scar the inside up a little don't worry about it you won't see it anyway. After you have the center removed lay the new grille inside and mark the six holes with a paint pen. From there all you need to do is take a 3/16 bit and punch them through. Be careful in this step not to punch through the outside, simply put a wrap of tape about 1/4 of an inch from the tip of the bit, this will slow it down so you wont damage the outside. After that screwing it in is a 10 min job. You will like the new grille. Best advise, make sure you have an afternoon and take your time. As for taking the grille out to get started, Grillecraft does not supply you with the instructions. All you need to do is take out the 4 bolts located at the top and the two clips on the bottom pull strait up. It will feel like you are forcing it but apply a little pressure and it will pop right out. Have fun and congrads on your newest upgrade. Jay"
