    I have a 23 offroad with front camera and all that safety stuff (including surround view). I would like to switch to a trd pro grille or replica but I am having a problem finding one with front camera and TSS.

    I might be able to get my hands on one but the way its currently mounted on mine is at the bottom of the grille and the others are above which I am guessing would create a weird picture?

    anyone know of an aftermarket brand that works and keeps factory location?

    I think the TRD pro grill camera location is at the top of the grill. Not sure how your factory off-road camera would work in the pro camera location. I've got a front camera on the factory pro grill but the camera is a nakita aftermarket with a Germes Lab front and rear camera setup. Works really well for me.

    I ran into the same questions when I was grill shopping (my truck also has Advanced Tech package with the 360 cameras). I was not confident in the aftermarket grill options with their own camera brackets, so after a lot of research, I ended up buying the OEM TRD Pro / Heritage grill that is packaged with the OEM TRD Lift Kit.

    Note, this version of the OEM Pro grill is all black - It comes with black Toyota letters instead of gray/silver, but the price is much more reasonable AND it accommodates the front camera. The worst part about this swap is the price of the new OEM radar sensor cover (aka "garnish") at ~$350. I ended up buying an aftermarket garnish off Amazon for ~$25, and it's worked flawlessly.

    Then your camera should work well there. Mine is lifted 2 3/4" also. The nakita camera in that location works really well for me.

    Where were you able to buy oem from toyota? I had a friend go to a dealership with his VIN from a pro and try to buy one, they wanted pictures of his damaged before they would sell it.

    Mine is the OEM pro grill also and I was able to get the grey letters right from the Toyota dealer. I did ask for grey though. I'm using the aftermarket garnish too but I have the factory one in my garage, just haven't put it on yet. Don't know if I'm going to, the aftermarket one looks and works perfectly.:thumbsup:

    When I ordered the all-black version of the Pro grill, I didn't need a VIN from a TRD Pro because it's not the same grill. I told the parts person that I previously purchased the OEM TRD Lift Kit online, but I damaged the grill during the install and wanted to purchase another.

    The only hurdle I ran into was the Toyota parts ordering system required a verification number of some kind to place the order. The parts manager tried both the grill part number and the TRD Lift Kit part number, for the verification number. I believe he said Toyota's system accepted the verification number using the TRD Lift part number..... and after 1-2 days of waiting for "approval", the order went through. My dealership told me they have never run into that before, but it worked out fine in the end.

    Still looking guys, I think I might have a lead on one but not sure if it will pan out or not.

    Telling me you got it from Toyota unfortunately does not help me unless you give me an exact dealership (In Canada) as anyone I have tried to contact wants a VIN and pictures of the damaged one.

    The grille that comes with the TRD lift kit is what you want; you just need the camera brackets and grille garnish. I believe you can get that in Canada.

    Alternatively, order from the US and just pay for the shipping fees.

    See my above post with part numbers - I already explained how to get an OEM TRD Pro grill (black letters) from your dealership. If you want OEM, just get the all-black Pro grill that comes with the TRD lift kit. It's a different part number from the Pro grill with gray letters and does NOT require a VIN from a Pro truck.
