    over the past few days i have made a mesh grill for my 00 tacoma i made it like the way a grillcraft is installed but it cost me $180 less than a grillcraft grile so tell me what ya think!

    pulled out my grill and this was my makeshift grille for a few days haha
    [​IMG]
    got a 6ft by 3ft mesh for $6.50
    [​IMG]
    then cut out the center from the surround
    [​IMG]
    sanded out all tabs
    [​IMG]
    trimmed until perfect fit
    [​IMG]

    Is that Toyota emblem off your truck? It looks good, but kinda small. But hey, you can't beat a free Toyota emblem.
