    So I've been thinking of building a new grill btu not satoshi (not sure what materials and how yet but I do have access to various methods here at school and being me I will do an excessive amount of design before starting)

    But I was playing around in photoshop a bit and came up with these...

    I am still planning on playing a bit more and trying to adapt the font from the Raptor's grill for toyota or a tacoma badge, but here's what I got so far in the last half hour or so.

    What do y'all think?

    Looks cool to me. I'm not a fan of the stretched TOYOTA on pic #3, but I likes to keep my logos proportional and all...

    I think the grille looks good, as long as it's black, not chrome. If you find a way to fab that up, let me know.

    I'll probably end up going with the standard FJ logo that everyone runs. I like that look anyway. But clean job on the PS work! :thumbsup:

    I dunno about those 3 led's you have in there, but for some reason I like #3. Curious how it'd look w/ black or red lettering.

    I kinda like #3. #2 is a close second but maybe with the smaller TRD logo instead of Toyota.
