    I've got a 05 4.0 Prerunner DC TRD Sport 2WD LB that is stock exept for what the previous owner did, a truxedo low pro qt tonneau and chrome Westin step bars.
    I'm going to add a few things to it for Christmas, like tint the front windows the same as the back (or as close as legally possible), a new grille, and new tires.

    First off, on the grille, I much prefer a black billet or black mesh, but do you think the black grill would look out of place with the chrome step bars? I think it would look ok since the grille is already black, just not billet/mesh.
    Which billet or mesh grille does everyone recommend, that does NOT require cutting the factory grille. I know it would look better if I cut it, but I'm not looking to make permanent changes yet.

    As far as tires, for now I am planning to keep my TRD Sport 17" wheels, but am definitely ready to get rid of the Dueler H/Ts on there.
    I'm trying to decide between the Nitto Terra Grappler, General Grabber AT2, and BFG All Terrain T/A KO.
    Anyone have any pictures of any of these tires, or any similar A/T tread tire on the 17" Toyota wheels?

    Thanks.

    the grillcraft mesh grill does not require the grill to be cut, but they do recommend it.

    Like lsocoee said it looks 10times better cut out, much cleaner look are far as the tires go man thats a coin toss they are all awesome tires you really cant beat the price on the general grabber at/2 i think my next pair will be the terra grapplers though.

    Does anyone have a comparo pic of the grille with and without the stock grille behind it, or is it just something you have to see in person to tell the difference?
