    Thanks guys.. I think the grillcraft really is a clean install. And really offers much more protection for the cooling system than the stock set up.

    The TOYOTA badging completes the install. I like a little reminder of the days of old/retro look. My total time for the install was probably 3 hours. And I was taking my time.

    Cheers!

    Doesn't look centered in the pic. Closer on the drivers side to my eyes. Must be an optical illusion.

    Taco4x4NC,

    Excellent job; your color combinations give it a great WOW factor. I've done several very similar; different color letters being the major difference. I was inspired by Cape Codders thread: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2n...nswer-converted-into-mod-write-up-w-pics.html

    While it's a bit more work, it's my humble opinion separating the letters like Cape Codder did adds just a bit more pizzazz.

    Very nice work.

    very nice! I'm thinking of doing this only I can't go a few days with my grill off so I'll have to get another one somewhere. Great job.
