    Looks good! Did you mean blacking out the whole grill surround? If so, I'd leave it red brotha.

    Looks good! I think it would look better with white letters though. Just IMO

    Yup, I was thinking blacking out the whole grill, but I like it like this too.

    Good Job! Clean...........

    Although I have one comment. Why the need to look like a Raptor? Don't get it. If i'm driving down the road and a Ford Raptor is coming my way and i made myself a Raptor looking product on my Tacoma would'nt that seem odd?

    For sure not trying to be a jerk or anything just my two cents......

    Once again nice Mod........but odd to me.

    :D

    It's just adopting the name of the style of the grill being similar to that of the Ford Raptor. ;)

    Nice Job, that's a lot of work.
    Can't say it moves me, but each to their own.
    Your letters look quite thick.
    I think if it were mine, and they were 1/2" or thicker,
    I'd have painted the face of the letters Black,
    and the sides/edges of the letters Red.
    Although your Color Scheme looks great on your truck
    Again, nice job
