    I'm trying to buy a TRD Pro grille assembly from a (any dealer) Toyota dealer in California. I want OEM, I'm fed up with sellers here and other places being flakes.

    Would someone here locally in SoCal be willing to pm a VIN so I can order one?

    I appreciate the help, a case of beer may be in the offing.........

    Pretty sure asking for a VIN is definitely against community standards. @jberry813, can you weigh in?

    Maybe it is, I'm unaware of it, but the dealership blackball on a plastic part for my truck seems unreasonable.

    Might I suggest you look around the forums for the Toyota reps about it. I know I've seen a few posts of people who have the OEM TRD Pro parts that can be sold for reasonable prices. I'll see what I can dig up

    Just go to a Dealer's website and lift the Vin from there and what you do with it after that is your thing not mine.

    I can think of a few ways to sneakily get a vin without even using this forum.

    I recommend de-escalating/replying y'all. This can't go well otherwise...

    My local dealer said it wasn't a VIN restricted part and could sell me all the shit to install or they could install it.

    I have tried and tried with the San Diego guy.

    Seems super flaky. No replies to my inquiries.
