    Hey sbpd, where did you get the headlight mod from? Also, where was the horn relocated to?

    Hey spbd, I dropped off my truck at T-Rex on 10/21/11 & picked it up on 11/03/11. I wonder if they had both our trucks at the same time?

    Hey sbpd, how much work was it to get the trex grill in? I want to replace my 2012 grill but don't want to have to hack at it too much. Really like the TRD emblem in there too.

    yeah I like the grill as well.

    Sbpd50816, if you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay? And did you have your grill surround painted? I love the color match, mine is chrome.

    Edit: Someone PM me if this group buy is going down.

    Has anybody ordered the 51938 t-rex grill and done the installation? I am about to order it and want to get an idea of how simple or not-so-simple the installation is. I have a TRD emblem and a TOYOTA emblem ready to add to it, not sure which one i'm gonna use yet.

    When ur cutting the OEM grill, do not cut the lip - that's where you screw the mesh grill.
