    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.
