    Anyone have close up pics of their camera mounting solution? Hard to see in most of these pics exactly where/how it’s mounted.

    I didn't like the look of the TSS slapped right up against the grille. It was too visible.

    Great alternative for those not wanting to see the sensor.

    Sorry, but I didn't photograph it during the assembly.

    It went together with JUST the parts that AJT supply. No need for any additional parts. I removed the OEM outside temperature sensor from the support bar and zip-tied it (using an AJT supplied zip-tie) to the wiring bundle to the left of the support bar. Used the hole left in the bar for the AJT bracket. It went in perfectly using the AJT hardware. Took care to make sure it was level left to right before tightening. Finished my grill install and tested the collision and cruise functions. Everything works as it should without any errors or alarms.

    I have this grill never installed with mesh for a 2019 with TSS located in SD. If anyone’s interested let me know, I also have a OEM Black trim piece, and Toyota emblem that I will include.

    potentially interested in trading my Pro Grille (from CaliRaised) and genuine OEM garnish for this grille and anything else needed to make the TSS work

    Ordered this grille can’t wait to get it installed. Does anyone know where to get these style pro letters? All the ones I found are the ones that slip over and attach with screws to the pro grille. I want to go with a raised letter look. I ordered a set of these because they were cheap hoping I can separate the black backing and just use the silver letters I will keep you guys posted.

    I'd recommend going with the Pro Letters from the 4 Runner. They are peel and stick.

    I doubt you would even notice the black backing.

    The black backing has slits around the letters to slide over the pro grille. Going to wait until I get them and try both ways with or without the backing

    I 100% agree with you that the Pro letters look better and it can be done as I've done it. I shaved down the black backing...would not recommend it for the average customers but feel free to give it a try. I'd recommend trying it first the backing as I think it could actually look good.

    I just try to keep things simple for customers with the 4 Runner Pro Letters that are peel and stick. As the Tacoma Pro letters will be a tab more tricky to install.

    Also here's a pic of what it looked like with the Tacoma Pre Letters when I shaved off the backing.

    Looking forward to how it turns out and what you come up with to install them.
