    The grill being blocked off like that seems like it would cause the engine temps to be higher than normal no? The little side openings aren't very big compared to the main grill which is where the fan pulls air from... looks good but I'd be worried about the lack of air flow

    I understand but the grill is full of little holes and so far no problems we are thinking of add holes actually

    What grill is this? I know the Toyota plate is separate but i'm looking for just the black grill since it looks 100x better than stock.

    Thanks!

    U can buy the fabtech spindles for 3 inches in the front from Amazon or fatbobs. Then u can buy moog 81070 coils for an inch of lift for 4 cyl 5 lugs, and can stack the daystar spacer for an additional .75 to an inch from amazon as well

    If u do just the spindle in the front and stock rear u will be level. If u do the moog coils and the spacer u will have just a small rear rake with stock rear. These 5 lugs take a bit to level
