    wat?
    looks much better than the 09's. another brilliant toyota thing is they used the same color on all the grill bars...they should have colormatched them like the OP. very nice. the arms are nice as well. i need to do some to match my seat covers

    I hate the looks of the stock grill which is why I replaced mine. However, assuming you are going to keep the stock grill, painting it makes it look much nicer. Good job!
