    I'm searching for a 05 Tacoma grille and parts geek seems to be the cheapest but my problem is does it come in two parts, like the surround and backing seperate because I want one that comes in one piece

    Mine from there came as one part, but can be taken apart, just like the OEM one.

    Yeah, it's in one part (and just as well made as the OEM IMO). Mine even came with a emblem, now that has been a year back though.

    Really, might just end up buying one on eBay to be sure because I don't want it in two pieces because I don't know how to put them together

    Where you looking for a color matched? I have a like new OEM chrome I'll make you fair price on. I'm in Alabama so shipping shouldn't be very bad at all.

    my parts geek was 2 pieces. line up the tabs (a 3 year old could do it) and either melt the tabs down or epoxy them. (again, a 3 year old could do it).
