    I have had my grillcraft insert sitting around a while and was going back and forth with different setups. at first I wanted to do lights behind it, but the wiring and all that kind of steered me away. I like the look but it just seems like a bigger project then I can take. the other setup that I like is the TOYOTA emblem that looks kind of like the FJ grille. does anyone have any other ideas or pictures of what they did? thanks.

    did you take your bumper off to paint behind the grill? did you just mask everything with tape and cover it with paper?

    You have to take the grill off (easy), to install the GrillCraft but not the bumper. I took both off then painted but still taped off for the lights and over spray that may get thought the rad during painting.
    The clips for the bumperets is the only place that gave me issues, but still got everything off and back on without braking any clips.

    Thanks! :D
    Putting the tiny screws in was a pain but straight forward! The hardest part of cutting was starting to cut a grill with no scratches or chips.
