    Damn, my PCS light came on. Is the only way to reset by going to dealer?

    I drove for about 80 miles with adaptive cruise control on a busy highway and it was working perfectly.

    Edit: Hmm I was driving to work today and it turned off.

    Edit2: Never mind the light is still on.

    If you drill holes, is there a large offset between the grille and the badge? There are plus-shaped features below the peg that would appear to give a space of about 3 mm. If you could show a picture off that space that would be awesome. Just trying to make the decision to drill or sand myself.

    You could drill holes and just cut/sand/grind the pegs off. I removed the whole part sticking out of the badge and used Jbweld

    Man... browsing around TW is dangerous. I just went through a ton of pics on this thread and somehow I’m missing $220 from my checking account now.... :crazy:

    This is the best looking grill I've seen on this site. But I think it looks a little too retro. Maybe if the center bar was thicker, and the flat spot went around the letters instead of them being bigger that the mounting spot.

    Some TRD pro grill letters that I found on eBay just came in. They are separate letters that you can space however you like. They are actually nice quality and look exactly like the real pro letters. They even come with pre cut double sided tape. You will have to sand down one “T” and the “A” on a belt sander to make it sit flat, but I bought two sets so I will only have to sand down the “A”. I just wanted to share because myself and maybe some others have been looking for another option for a badge. eBay link is below.

    Do the mesh and grille ship as one piece if you order both?

    They will be in the same box, but will not be put together if that is what you mean.

    Are you back home yet? I just got SCS wheels put on and my truck would look so much better with your grille! :D

    @watkins303 Do you still make the badge overlay stickers? The listing on ebay ended.
