    I like it on my truck, but I do want to change it out to the Pro grill or something else because I want it to say "Toyota" across the front. My wife likes the stock grill too and doesn't want me to change it. This is on the blazing blue pearl truck. I think chrome looks good on the blue. I do not like it at all on any of the other colors. Black is much better for those, but the chrome is nice on the blue.

    It came on my truck, and looks good. Spending money to change it, IMO is wasting money that could
    be spent on a functional improvement.

    Forgive me. I like my sport grille. That is one reason I bought a sport. Hate the cheap looking black plastic on a $30k plus truck. I think it cheapens the look. But then again I am over 25 years old. Hell I am over 55 years old. I will say that I like the modded sport grilles that are black/painted and chrome and some of the aftermarket grilles. Personally would not want a free Pro grille. Maybe for target practice. Feel the same about black wheels.
    Regarding oil change intervals I am following the 10k mile plan per the Toyota recommendation. When the free oil changes stop I will go to 7500 mile intervals. My last new Ford was 7500 miles. That oil was super clean when changed. That was synthetic blend that I use in all my other vehicles. My use is light duty. As far as warming up the engine you will not hurt it. Same as sitting in a drive thru for 10 minutes which is routine at fast food places. I do believe the water thin viscosity allows you to start and go. Does not REQUIRE a warm up to drive it. It is not like the old straight 30w that took a few minutes to circulate.
    Now let the arguments begin.

    So far the TRD pro grill is my favorite. Looks like a classic Toyota truck with it on. It is pricey, but so is a sport/OR grill if you buy it separately.

    Haha, to each his own I guess! I'm of the point of view that I don't like faux (nice way to say fake ;)) anything. If its plastic covered in fake chrome, I'd rather see plastic. Of course....and I may be chastised for this...I actually traded away the faux hood scoop. :crapstorm: Then again, I don't mind the chrome toyota emblem, so its probably a me thing...:rofl:

    I do agree though, that for whatever reason, it works better with the blue paint!

    Welcome to the over 55 club! In 17 days I will be 71 but to look at my mods you wouldn't believe it.
    This will probably be the last truck I buy and have outfitted it the way I want it, not to impress others.
    I can't see the need to raise or lower the truck or to replace perfectly good tires. When these tires
    wear out, I will replace them with the most reliable tire available at that time.

    Full coverage or slim? I'm getting the full size C4Fab -- good coverage, and loses the Leno chin that these trucks have. I want clearance, not cattle pushers!

    I agree that the Sport/OR Grille is nice but leaves something to be desired. I don't like the Pro Grille on a MGM AC. So I was an early painter and added a TRD emblem and it looks very good IMHO. Best $15.00 mod I've seen!

    I think truck color plays into my grille preference. I have seen many that look good with the black grilles. I just think the "faux" chrome grille looks best on my blue. Bottom line is what makes the owner happy. Don't care what anyone else thinks of my truck. I like it and I bought it. I make mods for my liking. That is what is so good about the 3rd gen trucks. There are so many mod options to please nearly everyone. The next thing I will do is upgrade my speakers. I may be old but I still like my music. Want to get the bass without going to a subwoofer.

    I haven't decided if I want full or slim yet. I like both for different reasons.

    Thanks for the info. I am thinking about 6112's as well. When you say the ride is more stiff, are you referring to when you moved from 3rd to 4th? Or are you saying that 6112's are stiffer than stock? I'm thinking of 6112's and 5160's in the rear because I'm looking for a super smooth, buttery ride on road and better performance for higher speed, light offroading ... so "stiffer" scares me a little bit.

    Also, anyone had 5100's and 6112's or had enough experience with both to describe difference in ride/ performance.

    Trying to decide if it's worth spending the extra $$ on 6112 + 5160's or just get 5100's all the way around.
