    What's my option for the little slit above the grill. Mine is currently brushed aluminum. Is their a separate part. I want this to be black ABS plastic as well.

    It looks like your grill is a 10-13 limited which would have been chrome with the surround later color matched. The valence in the front bumper appears matched as well. I didn’t see that as option in old brochures. So I would think the aluminum piece you are looking at can also be factory black. Maybe can swap out?

    Looks like you’ve got an aftermarket billet grille, not the OEM limited grille. Nice that the surround is already color matched.

    Have you tried removing the aluminum piece from the upper slot to see what’s behind it? You might have the OEM black plastic piece in there. I’m not sure that piece was available to purchase separate from the grille. It was in the early grille, but I’m not sure about the ‘10-‘13 grille.

    Finally committed to doing this mod. Everyone’s info has been super helpful!

    Picked up a used 2010 grill from Facebook marketplace for $30 and ordered the new pro style insert from Alibaba yesterday for $150 shipped to MD. Just need the grill kit from Sparks and I should be good to go.

    I’m also waiting for new headlight fillers to arrive (broke both of mine while installing new headlights) then I’ll get the grill surround and fillers paint matched.

    Not a great picture, but such a great transformation! Many thanks to those who’ve shared their process.

    I'm planning on putting my Sequoia TRD Pro grill on my truck this week, so I will have a chrome limited surround (2012) available in Colorado shortly if anyone needs the surround still.

    Got quoted $400 for paint... so it'll be staying chrome for a while.

    I got decent results with a color matched base and a 2K clear over. Both came out of rattle cans and I had less than $100 into it. Prep wasn't too bad, just clean really well and scuff with a red pad.

    I received my grill with no Toyota lettering from the guy on Alibaba. Did anybody else have this issue? Not even sure where I would purchase the letters if I have to…
