    Anyone know where to buy clips for both my new grill and also where the lower part of the headlight clips into the bumper filler? Broke a couple awhile back and just got after market headlights and grill and need new clips to install.

    Just buy these as a few will cost you more and this box covers all of the trucks needs at like $7.

    I used the ones in pic top right for those filler pieces and the lower lefts (8mm short) for fender liners etc. In fact going to order more short 8mm as already need more.

    Lots of the sites say Toyotas use 7mm but not what I found on my 2009 as too loose.

    For the grill top mounts they use screws but plastic so I inserted small bolts that simply threaded in with some pressure and retaps the plastic much firmer now..
    The grill to headlights I used small bolts and nylon lock nuts so now have positive mounting. Lots of shacking up front
    Hope this helps.

    Muddog,, do you know what size bolts you used to secure grill to headlights? I like the fact of knowing that everything will be securely fastened and snug. Thank you!!

    @muddog321
    Do you know if any of the clips in that kit are suitable for the OEM mudlaps?
