    yupp thats what i thought was kinda neat. If i had a spare color matched grill i would do that mod and switch off between satoshi/ jamoshi. but then i would want another colormatched with a regular grill craft....i am never going to be satisfied with this truck.... :D

    I absolutely love the Jameoshi grill! I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since I saw this write up. I'm gonna do it soon, as soon as I find a place to get the expanded 16 ga. mesh.

    But I wanna see a DIY write up on how you did that small opening below the grill between the foglights. BTW, anyone have their stock Tacoma badges off of their 08 or 09 they wanna get rid of for my project? And who knows where I can get those headlight eyebrows?

    My last major project is wiring in my alarm, due in sometime next week. After that - I'm gonna do a satoshi. Still trying to think of some way of making it unique though, havent decided how yet.

    I voted aftermarket because I'm waiting on delivery of a couple grillcrafts like the red truck above. I also just got my T-Rex eyelids from the guy on ebay today. I can't wait to get it all on the truck!

    for the guys that did the satoshi. What way did you attach the mesh other than zip ties? Zip ties seem to be the most popular way. Any other ideas?
