    Hey there everyone. I've been looking over this site for a couple of weeks now and I finally decided to become a member. I love these forums for all the helpful information they seem to give off. Me being fairly new to my Tacoma I'm glad to see that so many people seem to actually know what they are talking about. I have a feeling I'm really going to enjoy it here and I look forward to learning much more about my truck.

    Thanks, the color is the main reason I went with this one. Don't get me wrong, Black, Silver, and just about every color look great on this truck. But this Blue just really stands out.

    I see what you mean by addiction. I've only been a member for a few hours and I have not left my computer. I'm thinking the first thing I want to do is put a grill from grillcraft on it. I'm thinking this in black. I'm looking for something similar to this design but I do not want to cut anything. I would like just a "pop on" one. Any suggestions?

    Welcome from AZ!

    If you don't cut the center of the grill out it will look like siht. you can just buy a cheap grill off ebay and cut that out and put the grillcraft in. Keep your stock one in case you decide to go back to it.

    Yea I will probably just have to go find a stock grill. I didn't want to mess with cutting but if you say its not going to look good unless you do, well then I need to. I've been looking at everyone's trucks on here that have the same type of grill and it seems that everyone has cut the center out. Maybe I'll go call around to some junkyards and see if I can find one fairly cheap, and hopefully the same color so I don't have to pay for a repaint.

    $150 is not bad at all for both parts. Then I wouldn't even have to repaint it, thanks!
