    First of all, im just getting back into using a forum. Used to use tundrasolutions when i had my 2000 tundra. Now, had my taco since june of 2010. Trying to get started back up. Ill post some pics soon.

    This weekend, im putting on my 2011 painted black grill (got the linwood deal) and my BHLMi did to some aftermarket replacements.

    Here's where i need help.. I don't think my hood matches up too well with the headlights and grill. I don't think it sits right on the headlights. (the truck was wrecked previously when i purchased it, not totaled). I tried search, but couldnt quite find what i was looking for...

    If ANYONE can take a photo of there 2nd gen of where the hood and headlight meets up, a close up photo, and where the hood and grill meet, it'll be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance guys, looking forward to becoming a strong member of this forum.

    If you find out where the truck was repaired, the shop may make the adjustments for you. I know we would at our shop, adjusting panels on trucks is usually pretty easy.

    I'd take some pics for ya, but it's pitch black outside, and -25 celcius! :eek:

    Maybe tomorrow...

    thanks blazze. i was curious to the fact of the weather stripping showing on the grill and headlights, i wasn't sure if it was right or not. Looks like it shows on the grill, but not on the headlights? Correct me if im wrong...

    You forgot the weatherstripping on the headlights, I knew it when you posted, I did the same thing. It just fills the void.

    Here's a pic of the my truck after putting on the 2011 grill and without the bug shield. The edges of the lights line up with edges of grill and filler pieces underneath and in fender area as well as where they meet the hood and yes, rubber trim accross top of lights and grill. Should just be little gap in rubber where lights and grill meet. Let me see if I have another pic with the BHLM looking oem lights I thought I might go with...........

    Here's a close up but bug shield back on, kinda in the way........
