    I just installed this grill I got from eBay. Has anyone had any experiance with it? I had to cut some tabs off of it to make it fit. Other than that I like it. It goes good with the projectors and black bumper. What do you guys think?

    Either way, it looks good...

    Yeah, I plan to paint behind the grill over the week end. I think it will help out the look over all.
    As for the stock grill, I will hang on to it and plan to upgrade to the grillcraft mesh grill next year. I would keep this grill, but can't find a grill to match for the bottom.

    So, if you like this grill keep an eye out for it next year in the for sell forum.

    Looks good I've thought about getting that same grill and painting the whole thing speedwayblue to match my truck might look good might be too much blue.

    wish i would have known before i bought the trd sport. I would have just got the trd offroad and traded with you. It shouldnt be hard to find someone wanting to trade FOR a hood scoop. Pat's taco has a normal hood. ( i think)
