    Haven’t gotten to install the camera yet as the platinum bracket doesn’t allow it to mount anywhere

    For the shutter spacer I used
    6 x M6-1.0x60mm
    6 1/4in washers
    1 pipe (1/2in x 1/16in x 36in) that was cut up into the 6 spacers needed
    If you can find an M6 screw in 1.0x55, that would be the perfect length.

    Were you able to confirm that your letters fit the 22? Do you sell these covers?

    No sorry they are actually twice the size. I did purchase the grille and hoping to have these up for the new tundras in about a month or so. Ill be starting off with colors that overlap with the tacoma such as army green and lunar rock

    20220615_172632.jpg

    Now I just need the front bumper. if anyone is selling it (if they replaced it with an offroad type) I am willing to buy lol. I need to test fit these:

    might as well post in this thread as well,

    So, i got my grille finally, working on the camera bracket, had to stop was going cross-eyed staring at the computer,

    i found some mini marker lights that i thought might fit the grille, and it turns out they do!
    now they may not be as fancy as the OEM ones, but they work and was cheap to do.

    oem ones fill the entire little area and have a slope to em on the front, and has that +75 HP sticker on the back of them
    [​IMG]

    what i installed,

    [​IMG]

    Soooooooooo,

    Tools Needed: *if you do the same as me,
    Drill
    Drill Bit Set, mainly 9/16, and a 5/32 for a few of them
    Some way to cut the bar stock, hacksaw, jigsaw, circular saw, porta band, cutoff wheel, die grinder with cutoff wheel, or i used an angle grinder with cutoff wheel
    some form of grinder, bench grinder, angle grinder with flap disc, etc..
    Bench vise is handy to have to bend the aluminum all purty like
    Hammer!
    Marker
    Tape Measure
    Miscellaneous hand tools, pliers vice grips etc..
    electrical terminal connector assortment
    optional:
    soldering iron, solder, heat shrink tubing
    plastic wire loom
    electrical tape

    Remember your PPE! Don't lose an eye!
    [​IMG]

    i went and saw my good buddy Homer at the Depot, (home depot for those who don't care for my bad jokes)
    Picked up a piece of 1/8 in x 1in x 3 ft aluminum flat bar stock, cost $8.00
    [​IMG]

    got the marker lights, 3 holes, 3 total... , yes i know they aren't led, i don't particularly care, $4.00 ea so $12.00
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    also picked up some screws, this is what i used, use whatever you want, went with stainless as i live in the rust belt, this pack was $6.00
    [​IMG]

    now on to the fun part,

    i cut my flat bar at 24 inches as i wanted to have it overhang past the letters a bit on the sides so i know there would be support

    [​IMG]

    after i cut it, i took and laid the bar in above the letters and put the lights into place where i thought that they looked good,
    i then used a marker to mark out the base where the lights sit as you can't mark from top down, once the bases were marked i pulled it back off and used the marker light as a guide to mark the screw holes, then drilled them all with the 9/16ths drill bit.

    [​IMG]

    i then put the marker lights on the bar and used the screws to attach them,
    CAUTION - you go Hee Hawin on the screw your going to strip the aluminum where the screw is cutting the threads

    once the lights were screwed on, i then went and used a grinder to grind the screws flush on the bottom side of the bar or else it would not fit back in the spot at all

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    after the lights were mounted i test fit again and all was kosher,
    took the leftover 1ft piece of bar stock and made 2 brackets by bending and cutting it, no real measurements here, i just made some that worked, they don't look the best, but they will hold it to the grille
    used 2 screws from the top of the bar down into the brackets i made, i used the 5/32nds drill bit for those holes for the screw to go through, and then used the 9/16ths on the bracket holes for them to cut threads into, these don't have to be ground down.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    after the mounting brackets were done only thing left was wiring,
    these particular marker lights use a "body" ground
    [​IMG]

    so wire all the black wires from the lights to power,+12v, "hot" whatever you want to call it
    i wired all mine together in a chain instead of 3 individual wires, you can use whatever you want to attach them together(except scotch locks - don't use those for anything they are terrible)
    me, i soldered my wires together and used some heat shrink tubing
    then i attached a ring terminal to a black wire for ground and used one of the bracket screws to hold it to the aluminum
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    used a couple pieces of electrical tape to secure wires to the bar itself before i stuck it back in, could use plastic loom if you want.

    used 2 of the screws to screw the brackets to the grille!
    and finish!

    i mean, electrical isn't hard per say, youtube can be your teacher...
    if you understand hot(+) and ground(-) or positive and negative, your doing ok

    the only other thing i will have to do is tap into a marker light wire +12v power wire, and put the ground on somewhere whenever i get my truck

    Any of you happen to have gone from a TRD to PRO grill and want to sell the TRD grill? (Not interested unless it's in 100% perfect condition.)

    Have a PRO grill on order but not sure that I have the patience to wait for it. Can't even get an estimated backorder time. If so, shoot me a price (with shipping.)

    Has anyone tried to order the TRD Pro Grill from parts.toyota.com or through a dealer that uses that platform?

    P/N 53101-0C220 is showing it’s no longer available. Not just backordered…but looking like they discontinued that part # entirely? I was going to order one and have it waiting in the garage for when my winch bumper arrives in a couple of months.

    Asked pretty much the same thing 2 posts up. Noticed the previous part # is no longer available for ordering via the OEM sites.

    I'm assuming Toyota retired (temporaril maybe?) the part # due to amount of backorders on it.

    Is the measurement on the caliper the length of the spacers you cut off the pipe?

    I ordered from Toyota of Grand Rapids. Wanted to order from Cool Springs but their shipping was absolutely ridiculous.
    But yeah, Grand Rapids can’t give an estimated back order time.
    I’m waiting on the order to just be cancelled.
    As much as I can’t stand Yota Garage because their prices are 100% stupid, I get the feeling I might be forced to buy from there anyway if I want a grill any time remotely soon.

    doubt they would discontinue the part # this far into production, would assume its due to volume of back orders, or it may be discontinued, could be caused by yota garage guy buying them all up to resell
    mine says on the back of it assembly 53101-0C220, it is a "fresh" production
    would check with your local dealer first before you assume the world is ending and can no longer get a grille.
    i ordered mine April 30th, and just got it Monday June 20th, roughly a month and a half wait

    I actually saw the same thing. I had to type in specific Toyota dealers in order to purchase one. I live in NC and mine is apparently coming from a dealer in New Hampshire.
