    Sorry if this has been done, didn't see it.

    Anyways, I just got my Silver 2010 dc/sb TRD Sport Tacoma and I'm trying to decide on a grille. My dad always gets chrome tube/billet grilles on his trucks and I like it, but I like the mesh grilles on the Tacomas. And I'm thinking about purchasing a grille emblem from MetalMiller, and/or mounting two lights behind the grille. So I wanna see some pics of your guys' grilles and especially if you've mounted an emblem or lights! Please tell the name/brand of the grille too! Thanks!

    Mine is probably the most popular grill on Tacoma's from GrilleCraft, purchased on EBay. :)

    I like it, I will get the bumper grille to match as well.

    Question about the mesh grilles, Grillcraft or Satoshi, how do they hold up over time? Any issues with dents from stones kicked up on the road?

    I can't tell you how happy I am with it. I took a golf-ball sized rock straight to the grill in front of my light from a guy's tire who cut me off from a dirt road last week. It was enough to crack my headlight tabs and break the Hella 500 out of its mount. The grill was totally fine and just needed a bit of touch-up paint. Had that been a satoshi or something else I would have been out a light and maybe a radiator.

    Ive had my grillcraft for almost 1.5 years, no rust, no chips. Bugs get stuck in that thing like no other, and no issues...I dont have any updated pics of my grill, as I took it from this:

    [​IMG]

    to an all black surround and moved the lights towards the middle and made a bracket thats more sturdy that connects into the frame vs. the actual grill surround.
