    Well then here is a proper response: Welcome to TW from Cali!

    You can look up Homertaco/satoshi grills, he makes them as a whole job or he can sell you the mesh to DIY. IMO, I did mine with a Grillcraft, depends on how far back you want the grill to sit. If you like the grill flush with the opening it's pretty easy, if you want it further back from the edge you have the cut outs where the old grill was to fill.

    Nice thanks for the info on the grill! I'll do some reading up on it I'm handy with most things including fiberglass I'm just wondering if its worth it just to pay some one else.

    I didn't do the fill on mine, because I needed all the available room i could get to stuff lights in there but if you're handy with fiberglass it shouldn't be that hard to do, on the other hand Homer could set up up with a primo grill with all the fixins

    Nice, i'll get a hold of him shortly about some parts for this idea i have going. those lights look like a good time to install behind there.

    Well in that case, Jerry at BAMF has the (IMO), best solution for running lights behind the grill. I run one myself and couldn't be happier with the results! Don't think he still has a group buy going on but here's a link to his thread
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/ba...2570-b-m-f-behind-grill-light-bar-gb-3-a.html

    Notice the black slotted bar to which all the lights are mounted, you can mount two, three or four lights with this bar, 1/4 steel is really strong and it can be adjusted up or down to center whatever size lights you have.

    I mis quoted the specs on the light bar, it's 3/16ths steel, not 1/4 inch, still the bar is plenty strong :)
