    i say B just because i haven't seen a horizontal cut billet grill that handles the curves around the logo very well. it looks sloppy. they couldn't get those top and bottom lines in any tighter? and why not offer a version with a chrome oval there to conceal those edges

    i say go with B and either find a way to attach a logo to it or find another way to show your taco pride.

    With the logo looks better to me. When it's just straight billet it doesn't look right IMO. Honestly though. I've never been a big fan of the billet grill look. The only part of having it that I like is when people put KC lights behind them, of course that's probably a waste of good lights...

    Must agree with zombat, look for a better logo grill. I saw a billet grill where someone put "TOYOTA" letters on it (like the older Toyotas) looked pretty clean, wish I had a link.

    i'm going to do the non logo one that requires you to cut out the middle of the grill so i can put lights behind the grill, which wouldn't work if you use the one that bolts on, on top of the stock grill

    I disagree... they should work fine

    here's what i'm going for:

    My point is that mounting them in front would give you more light. It still looks good with them in back. I like the black on the white painted grill more than the chrome grill.

    i found that on ebay just searching tacoma billet grill, i think.

    it's only $100 plus shipping. what i can't figure out is, are they just selling the inserts, or is it a completely new grill and surround molded one piece?
    ever see something that looks too good to be true on ebay...and you don't move on it?

    for $100, probably just an insert. but it looks good!

    I agree, they look sloppy around the oval. I'm a fan of the polished look, especially on darker vehicles like mine. People who are in the know, will know it's a Toyota, that's why I debadged my ride.

    hey yeah- that's the one i was talking about. i think we better ask the seller what is involved and included. they describe it as a 'bolt in' needing to be 'professionally installed'
    ;)
    i just want to know if that price includes the whole thing shown, center, frame, and triangles.
