    Just another stupid poll to help me decide what I want to do to my grill. I'm not sure I like the 'deep dish' look of the satoshi. I'm really torn between what would look better. Thinking about just keeping stock grill and color matching the emblem for a lil 'pop'

    Satoshi looks cool - but I agree that it is a lil too deep for my tastes.

    i'd say satoshi. not because i have one...but it takes some effort. after you're done and are standing back looking at it....
    well you will know the feeling when you finish it.
    do it :D
    anyone can buy a billet insert...but how many tacos do you see in your town with a satoshi grill? fwiw
    (not bashing anyone!)

    I'll do the Satoshi as soon as I get time.
    Do it, they look sweet.

    I do have a question about the Sato's.
    There is enough room to mount lights?
    Is there enough to mount the URD intake there?

    I vote for the recessed grill. You can make it any depth you want, just don't go to shallow. I did and had to trim the inner head light mount a little. Mines pretty shallow...

    I say Satoshi.
    Still need someone in the Austin do this for me. I just don't trust myself doing that on my truck.

    Wouldn't be anything more than subtle. If you did it right you'd probably think it was a stock option.

    Find the Jamoshi and do that one. It seems relatively easy and looks really good!

    IMO, do the satoshi grill and then find an old TOYOTA emblem and paint to match your truck, that would be
