    Hello everyone, I'm looking, quite despiratly for that matter for 2012 Tacoma front grill inserts, in black, similar to the T-Rex inserts found on eBay for $140 plus, witch in my eyes is a rip off, I'm looking to pay about $60-$70. Idc if it is plastic or metal, new or used, please let me know! :). Thank you !!

    Yes, it is similar to grillcraft, but they are for the 2012 and they utilize the oem grill incerts, they go around it, as well as in the bottom air damn. :)

    Not sure what his pricing on the 12's are yet. But go to the main page and look on the left side of the screen, then youll see vendors. Homertaco Custom Grill or something like that.

    you have a 2012 Tacoma, dont cheap out and put 60$ worth of hardware store mesh on the front end. Do it right and save up another hundred. You will be proud of yourself.

    Oh God no, id never ever do that, and everything on my truck is pretty top notch as it is... I mean I even use Toyota dealer engine oil and trd oil filter... Id never cheap out on my truck but I can't see spending $300.00 on a grill, when the same grill for the 2011, is 1/3 of the price.. The only reason the price is so jacked up is because of the redesigned 2012 front end... And on top of that I just spent over a grand on a set of BFG all-terrain T/A tires lol.. sucks lol

    T/A KO's? or just T/A? because if you got KO's they're redesigning them and they look completely different. That's why I decided on Nittos Terra's a few months back. Hope you don't tear up a tire.
