    I just installed my Empyre Off-Road aluminum grille with TSS panel. I’m very impressed with the quality. Instead of using the supplied hardware with standard bolts painted black, I used stainless Allen button head bolts. I wrapped the stainless letter panel in 3M Fiery Orange Vinyl. It is a great match for the Inferno MESO insert panels.

    Modified my Empyre Off-road grille to illuminate the Tacoma badge. Used stainless rod couplers to extend the post and float it off the back of the grille and used a single 8” led bar. Nothing too fancy but it turned out pretty cool. Tapped into the side marker light.

    Got to give you props for doing your own thing. Not my style, but nice work. Too fast and furious looking for me.

    ... so would I.

    Yesterday, my brother paid William Daniels (the voice of K.I.T.T.) to record a personal birthday greeting for me. It was awesome.

    Might want to double check your vehicle code of where you live. I know a lot of states do not take kindly to lights facing forward with anything that resembles a red color.

    It is orange/amber. The stock headlights have orange/amber bulbs. That color is allowed up front where I live.
