    Saw Your Tacoma at The Dealership a Couple Months Ago, While Getting My Leaf Spring TSB done.
    The TW Sticker On Your Back Window Caught My Attention. Nice Truck BTW.
    I Posted in the Are you the ONLY SATOSHI grille in your area? Thread.
    Seems I Am, So I Thought I Would Be Good to Start a Trend. I Vote for the Satoshi.
    All The Posts of Radiant Red Tacomas Look Great With Satoshi or Billet Grills. Let's see your Radiant Red Tacoma
    Your Truck Will Look Great With Whatever You Decide On.
    Seems the Votes are Going In Favor of the Satoshi.
    I Did a Write-up on the Emblem I Put on Mine. Link's Below My Sig Pic.

    Satoshi is cool and all, but to me it wasnt worth it. I already knew I was going to put 2 8" HID lights behind it and wanted all the room I could get, so I just did a Grillecraft flush at the front. I love it.

    Camper top with racks, Custom fogs behind lower bumper. Interior LED lighting, Rock Lights, Hella 500s with upraged bulbs behind black billet grill, AAL, Front 5100s

    Would be so much cleaner with the lights behind the grill and sans uni-brow.
