    I have an 06 tacoma and the 4 piece grill insert. Does anybody have instrutions for installation? I pulled the grill off, but the instructions i recieved were crap so i dont know what needs to be cut. Also, how does the emblem attach? im so confused. HELP???? I know i need to pull the bumper off to install the lower grill other than that, I am stuck. Thanks!!:frusty:

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    Can you post pictures of what type of inserts you are putting in? Is it a billet?

    Without pics I can't be sure, but I don't think you'll have to remove the bumper for the lower install, I know I didn't. Post up some some pics and let's see what were dealing with.

    If it's a 4 pc Billet grill then it usually mounts over the stock grill using L-brackets/screws. Same goes for the lower piece and you don't have to take the bumper out to do this. The 2 triangle pieces are screwed through the factory plastic. The emblem is covered up with the solid billet grill unless you bought one with the center cutout.

    Don't give up on it. It's not hard, a little time consuming, but not hard. You'll be proud that you did it on your own when completed. You may want to buy a extra grille so you can do the work on your own time. There are plenty of folks here that will be glad to help.
