    Looks awesome thanks for posting a picture!

    If you want to stealth the acrylic, I've seen some people add vinyl over it. Plasti-dip or lense tint might even do the trick as well.

    What lights did you use for the grille?

    That looks very nice. I like it better than a TRD Pro grill. :thumbsup:

    If I was thinking about changing my SR5 OE grill, it would be my first choice . As for the sensor's plexiglass, you could probably spray it lightly with flat black paint to make it less noticeable without affecting its operation.

    Edit: For the meantime I'll stick with my OE grill.

    For those that have this without the mesh has your radiator taken a beating? I prefer the look sans mesh but seems with the large openings between slats like rocks an debris could get launched in there. Probably overthinking this but just wondering. Great looking grille!

    Agree, that’s a good looking grille. Suits Tacoma’s overall styling well. And looks OE, which I like.

    Mine’s been in over a year without any issues or damage. I still like this grille better than the other options out there.

    No issues with hits on the radiator, but I am considering getting the screen for the looks.

    Haven't had any problems with getting bugs in the radiator or anything. If you are concerned about rocks or bugs getting in the radiator, the mesh would be a great solution.

    Haha I've even had customers send me pictures of the mesh as a butterfly catcher with all the butterfly swarms we had out here.

    I got a rattle can of MGM, scratched the gloss on them and put six coats on them.

    Still will one day own this grille. Where do you think would be a good spot to mount a forward-facing camera? Perhaps underneath the central block where the TOYOTA goes (similar to the Pro grille)? I don't think that'd interfere with the TSS.

    You could get pretty creative on where to mount a front camera. You could put it under the central block or above it, or even above the top bar as there is a lip you could use there too. You might even be able to mount it to the mesh along with some LED lights as well.

    Here's a pic of what looks to be deer alarms or some sort of radar detector and I think a front camera too? Not exactly sure what it is but you get the picture.
