    Do yall think a satoshi (sp?) grill would look good on my truck? Is there anyone in or around Central Alabama that has done this mod and would be willing to help or possibly do the satoshi mod for me? I would be willing pay for it. I just dont feel comfortable performing this mod myself.:( What do yall think? [​IMG]

    Well to my knowledge it includes cutting out the middle bars, doing some fiberglass and bondo work, then cover it up with some mesh of some short. But Im not sure what all there is to doing one right.

    I think it looks freaking awesome on any Taco.. not that easy to do yourself. One of these days, I will try doing mine but I am not that handy with plastic fab. Any one in Houston good at Fab wanna make some money? :D

    I know. I love that emblem! Now I just need to wake up tomorrow and magically have the skills of a master faber then I might feel like I could do this mod without destroying my grill.

    I just did it on my '09. Not hard at all, just regular body work. My problem is that I cannot locate the correct grille emblem. Does anyone know where I can get one?
