    Find seller bruceshark as mentioned. I myself and many others have had great results with him. Says China but it comes in a week, likely because he has someone here in the states drop shipping for him in order to avoid any copyright issues, but that’s not our problem in a capitalist economy, right?!? Lol

    Haha...this forum blew him up...he had to take a quick smoke break, he’ll be back, wait a week..business is too good for him now...but I’m willing to bet this “vacation” is more of a layover for him to restock as opposed to selling and having a backlog of backorders...because he actually ships fast when stocked...

    Glad I ordered mine when I did. I got my grille yesterday from bruceshark which shipped from Cali. It does have one tab broken but otherwise is perfect.

    Seems the prices have greatly inflated and general availability of the Chinese pro grille has become more scarce than weeks prior. Anyone else think Toyota is raiding the hen house?

    Hey folks, I ordered some strike plate covers and I just received this message from the seller. I'm sure this will apply to most if not all orders coming out of China.

    "Dear sir, Your purchase is happy but I can not send you two weeks ago because all the shipping companies in China will not work during this period due to the festival if it is urgent you can cancel the purchase .. Sorry for the inconvenience"

    I elected to just wait for my items as they are in no way critical (shhhh, don't tell my Tacoma that though. She likes her ANTI-BLING)

    I didn't see @MontysTruck post before I submitted mine. I suppose you can view my post as confirmation.

    I have one enroute to my house now. I’ve changed my mind and will be going a different route. I will either sell it for 130 plus shipping or just return it for a refund.
