    haha thanks!! any attention given to your Taco is good enough for me.

    i painted the stuff black but i left the horns in place for now. Couldnt decide what to do with what i think is the outside temp sensor that mounts in front of the radiator. It looks like its wired with the horns and I didnt wanna deal with it. Any ideas???

    its pretty easy....couple hours including painting and cutting.
    I actually searched on here before i got it and there are some great threads on installation. Just cut out the OE grille and paint the radiator. the rest is installing

    If you can picture this, its right behind the front bumper with the temp sensor still in the middle but a little lower. Just need to rework the wires to come out another section to extend the length a little more.

    yea its not hard to re route the horns and temp sensor.. you just remove them and then see where the wires let you put them..
