    ??? Can you really not just go look at the website

    Its $200 + $80 for mesh with TSS + $45 if you want the toyota name emblem

    200+80+45 = $325

    I just ordered the grill for 2018. I will let you guys know how it goes, and I will take some pics when it is installed.

    Could you throw a butterfinger in my order?

    Would be easier to just vinyl the letters. There's a link on his site under the grill description.

    I was looking into this and you can get real creative with the badge area.

    There are a couple websites where you can literally design your own logo or type something out in a specific font and they will make it for you in a 3D sticker. Would be awesome to see someone do this.

    I've even had a couple of people 3D print their own logo.

    If you're looking to save a couple of bucks or add a differentiating touch to the Toyota Emblem, the vinyl inlays that are linked at the bottom of the page are made by a member from Tacomaworld and are pretty legit.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Premium-Vi...-Grille-Emblem-75311-90K00-/183186846419?var=

    Also the guys at Tuff Skins make some cool 3D stickers that come in a variety of colors, like American Flag, or even Camo which would be badass to see.

    I didn’t go with mesh, being a 16’ and all. But I went with all black since the truck has a grey black theme. I will post up pictures tomorrow. Here’s a preview AFC55D8E-21D8-4C4A-9C9E-1DAF08D9F373.jpg

    Could you take a picture of the back so I could see how you attached the Toyota logo.

    I used dremel and cut off all tabs on the back of the logo then used j-b weld original to glue it straight onto the grille

    Okay guys the group order pricing has offcially sold out, but don't worry you can still get one at the regular price which isn't much more.

    One way you can still save is if you have the pro grille and are looking to switch, you can save on the badge area by doing this:

    That looks good.. you just pull the letters from the pro grille, measure out and use adhesive?
