    Here is what I used
    http://imagecraft.mysimplestore.com/t/multicam-black

    3RD GEN FOR LYFE YO. But ya, I miss that 2nd gen. 4.0 and a non-retarded tranny was nice.

    I dremeled out the Toyota logo, fabricated a flat plate to take it's spot. Then plastic welded and sanded smooth. I liked the OEM grill, just not the big logo.
