    Would love one in 8P4 (2007) as soon as you get a chance! There is a check sitting on my desk with YOUR NAME on it - once I can fill in the amount and stick it in an envelope, we have a deal my friend! Thanks!

    The individual letters can be done by vendor "JLee" , a vendor here @ TW, churning out custom CNC cutting of metals which can then be painted to one's desires. a perfectionist, i cut-out precise cardboard variations of the individual letters...."TACOMA" and proceeded to paint them various colors.....silver, black ,red.....ultimately settling on the silver-aluminum.:)

    Anybody running HIDs or LED light bars behind their Raptor style grills? I am looking to jump on the 4Runner raptor when Homer starts making them, but I already have plans and have spent money towards mounting a 20" light bar behind the grill. I know the standard Santoshi doesn't really effect the light output, but the large raptor letters have me concerned. If anyone has any thought or better yet pics, I would love to hear/see what you have!

    Got to admit, I've never been a big fan of the satoshi grills because I thought it would be hell cleaning all of the bugs and crap out of the mesh. But these? These are freaking awesome! You've changed my mind 100%. Nice work, Craig. Hopefully one day I'll be on the waiting list with everybody else.
