    Also seen those billet grills for the 01-04. How in the hell do you get in there to push the lever to pop the hood open

    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
