    I am looking for a grille mod for my 2004 Tundra TRD. I would like a black mesh grille with either Toyota or Tundra (preferred) bold lettering. Can anyone recommend a source?

    I couldn't find it yesterday but somebody did a mesh grille (satoshi? Satori?) And used the "Toyota" letters from a land cruiser. Looked really good.

    Found a bad pic, it was Erki from TS

    <<---- Heh, the black one is mine, it was taken in a Cox parking lot, and it's an e-autogrilles. After about 4 years the clearcoat is starting to bake off of it so I plastidipped the crap outta it. I am debating between putting the "Toyota" badge off a land cruiser across the front (this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01F2ALULA/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) or just doing a Satoshi mod. I am afraid the LC badge won't look right since it would have a slight bend, as that grille is curved.

    I'm in the process of putting one of the bold white-letter FJ emblems on one of these grilles but painted to match my truck. Still need to drop it off to be painted though. Will update when it's on the truck.

    I realized I never posted a photo of my grill after I painted it.

    The emblem is from an FJ Cruiser.

    It's an eBay grill that has been painted and the Toyota emblem epoxied to it.

    Grille Craft makes a nice grill. It has a high quality powder coat. Took about 2 hours total time to cut the old grill section out and screw in the new insert. Basically plug and play on 2002.

    That looks clean. I'm a bigger fan of a recessed grill, though.

    Too bad it doesn’t fit Double Cabs. We seem to be orphans when it comes to parts
