    A little something every chance we get.
    I got one from Amazon. Build quality is good for the price, and the only issue I had was with the rubber gasket - the adhesive is a little wimpy. Otherwise, install is painless, once you figure it out. No instructions provided. I got it just because it was different, and I didn't want to fake being a different Tacoma. I got it for half, because of Amazon points I had built up. Hey, one person liked it on my Facebook posting!

    Nice, looks great! I'm thinking of the carbon fiber looking one as that would match the color of my magnetic gray metallic truck. The grille itself on my truck is a little banged up; just normal wear and tear from getting hit with small road debris over the years. I think this would be an improvement. Did it come with hardware? Thanks!

    Actually, factory grille is just held in with two small bolts on the top sides. After staring at it for an hour, and looking for TW threads, or YouTube help, I just grabbed it and yanked straight up. Two tabs at the bottom (one each side), and a center post as well. Then just push it in, and the two bolts back on top. I was looking for any pic of the bolts, but apparently not. I like the carbon fiber as well, went gloss so not to mix with the bugflector look. They have it in chrome. I just liked them being different than the rest.
