    Hey y'all,

    Previous owner enjoyed front end damage, so now it's my job to fix it. Here's my question:

    Have any of y'all installed an aftermarket radiator core support? I'm talking about the one-piece variety here, which appears to be stamped from a single piece of steel.

    If so, how did it compare to the piecemeal OEM type, with separate top/side/bottom pieces?

    Here's an example of the former:

    Thanks!

    p.s. It's going on a 4WD 2000 tacoma reg. cab.

    I can't say that I have, but if there is some "racking" in the front end you wouldn't have the ability to adjust with a single piece as you wold with a multi piece unit. Good luck on that one.
