    I have the CarriageWorks grill on my truck. I got it for christmas. I love it. It was a little scary cutting up the original grill to install it, but it turned out great and it really was not hard at all. You just need to take your time.

    Hey Fibertop, weren't you the guy looking at the Hunter bull bar the other day? I think we must have the same taste in trucks. ;) :)

    yeah that was me. I ended up buying the optional skid plate to get the look I wanted. The damn truck is so long already, I couldn't stomach the extra length of a bullbar. My wife will be driving the truck now and then and she's just a little thing. The skid plate looks great but the front still needs something. I will be mounting some fogs but first I want to change the grille. Thanks for your suggestion on the bullbar though.

    The skid plate looks good too. I understand what you mean about the truck being so long already. The wife does not care for driving my truck (she calls it a boat), but that is fine with me. The grill is the worst part of the stock Tacoma in my opinion. Almost any aftermarket grill is a major improvement. Good luck in your search.
