    I'm not much into Bling
    Might look ok on the TRD Off Road's Chrome Grill
    I've seen a Chrome Billet in a Chrome grill in my area that didn't look half back
    Go subtle and color matched:

    I like it because it's different. I wouldn't if you plan on offroading your truck, though.

    Also, if you have the chrome surround, that might be a lot to handle.

    I dont care for it, makes me think of Chevrolet's, I dont like Chevy's. But you have to decide, if you like it. It's not what others think, it's what you like.

    I don't know if I like it on our trucks but I have had E & G grills on other cars and even sold them to some of my customers and the brand is great. It holds up forever and with minimal tlc so the quality is great if you like the look
