    Any websites that sell billet grilles for a 98 tacoma? I"m trying to find a black one to save me from having to paint a steel one myself.

    I heard they were around 75 but I can't find them on google for my model and I'm just wondering where you guys get yours for your 1st gens.


    Thanks!


    Edit:

    Found them please deleteeeeeee

    Look at build!
    I know you said you found them already but why not just make you one out of some mesh, your already going to be cutting all the stock guts out anyway & its cheaper than buying the billet pieces! just my opinion unless you just like the billet look better.

    I like the billet look but my truck is black and i've seen some black billet pictures and it almost looks like there isn't even a grille there. I've thought about mesh but I haven't really seen it on a black 98-00 first gen. So right now im leaning toward a stainless steel billet unless i can find a black alternative that looks good.

    My stock ones kind of damaged and thats why im changing it at all.

    I don't think im going to paint mine black. I've seen a lot of black billets on our trucks and all you see is the radiator. doesn't even look like there is a grille there. I'm going to go with the polished stainless steel one. Don't really like the mesh ones.

    and to solve the radiator problem just spray it with some high temp engine paint and its done fine for me!
