    Finally took the time to remove the emblems and it looks much nicer/ cleaner without them.

    This post is looking for ideas on something to fill the spot in the pro grill where the TOYOTA name goes.

    Only ideas I have come up with so far is;
    - LED light bar- maybe a black series single row- or make a holder and put pods aimed to the sides slightly and pods in the middle pointing straight forward.
    - Get someone that does 3D printing to print up some letters that say TINFOIL instead of TOYOTA- since I tell everyone that Toyota makes tinfoil trucks.

    Anyone else interested in replacing the Toyota in their Pro grill? Anyone done this already?

    Any other ideas? Opening size is ~16 3/4" x 2 1/8".

    I like the way it looks. But a light bar would be cool

    I don’t think there’s too many that want to cut up the Pro grill, replica or OEM. :)

    I'm interested to see how this turns out.
    My Citiot brothers make fun of my truck because of all the lights I have on it. They say I look like a Kangaroo poacher from Crocodile Dundee.
    Needless to say, I'm looking for another place to stick a light on my truck.
    My lighting needs are pretty much already taken care of but as a flashaholic I'd never turn down an opportunity for more OTF lumens.

    No cutting needed- the TOYOTA is held in with some small Phillips screws. I will have to fab up a bracket that will either mount to the grill or the the rad saddle. Shouldn't be too difficult.

    If you want some cash to shop for an aftermarket with I’ll take that Pro grill off your hands.
