    Thanks for looking into it and responding to all the questions! I appreciate it! The taco letters are larger so they look proportionate on the grille

    The brackets are powdercoated black so they aren’t seen as easy. The aluminum letters are painted with self etching automotive primer (3 coats) then 3 coats of color matched automotive paint. They’re painted correctly. They’re not perfect but pretty darn close.

    Floating letters are perfect. Added to this year's upgrade list.

    Glad you could join in on the conversation. Lots of questions from us TW members regarding your grill. Looks like it’s a solid choice especially with so many TRD Pro grills on the market now. Have you considered doing a group buy?

    Does the grill come with those large Tacoma letters or where do I get those letters from, I like the way they look?

    Nice looking grill with the exception of the retarded looking wide vehicle markers (aka raptor lights to the mallrats).

    I believe the grill does come with the letter already installed.

    Did you end up purchasing one? I'm eager to see some pictures and hear more about the quality. Thinking about getting one myself and selling my TRD Pro grill replica.

    Not yet. I want to see one that says TACO so I can decide if I want that or TACOMA.

    It’s the little things I life lol.

    Regardless it’s a good looking grill. The only other one I like is the BAMF but they don’t have it to accommodate the sensor.

    Yea decisions are hard sometimes. I think I want to go with TACO. I don't want Toyota, it doesnt need any more advertisement that it is a Toyota, and I want to be different, note the Inferno color. I think TACOMA would be nice but I can see that getting boring to me. Yep, I just talked myself into it. Will place the order tonight. Inferno letters, TACO. 340 dollars that will make my wife a little upset, but I will get her some flowers and chocolate and take her out to dinner.:thumbsup:

    Awesome looking grills and I may look into converting. You should definitely consider a group buy, as I'm sure a lot of people would be interested. Any issues with the TSS sensor mounted in that location?

    You're right. It's worth mentioning that you can put the amber lights in the replica grill though. I'll be watching this thread because the Raptor style grill is cool.
