    if you have time for other grills why not 12-13 model Tacoma? just wondering theres lots of members that want your grills but you don't design for our model. the answer is probably in the thread but its kinda long

    Because I have yet to invent an efficient way of mass producing them. I've done three 12' prototypes and have yet to come up with an acceptable process.

    The FJ grill I bought quite some time ago just to see what could be done.

    With both the FJ and 2012 Tacoma I'm hoping to come up with a DIY mesh product.

    Thank you,
    ~ Craig

    Since you had such a reaction just the shell, here's the whole prototype. :cool:

    hmmmmm did you ever wind up doing more with the 4runner stuff? I know you're swamped, but if you wanna see mine or take measurements one day shoot me a PM, can't be more than 45 mins from you. The 4th gen guys would be all over these, i've already got a billion PMs about mine.

    the 03-05 kinda sucks, but the 06-09 is wicked easy. I modded an 06 grille to fit my 03 which was a pain, but with your skills I'm sure you would have an easier time with it.

    heres a better pic of mine FWIW

    Also cool to see your truck in person/meet you briefly last week

    So are these available to buy for the 5th gen 4runner now? If so I missed it somewhere. I thought they were still in pre-production.
