    Sheesh, grill shipped already! What, 2-2 hours after ordering?

    Admittedly I wasn’t too happy with the $90 shipping when multiple other places were less than $20, but for shipping basically immediately I can get over it. :D

    The box is 58x22x8 exactly. The dimensions are printed on this particular box that the grilles come in. Here's cost directly from UPS showing a box this size being shipped from my dealership to Beverly Hills. (still remember the zip code from the show :D) You can see at the bottom UPS Ground is $137.57.

    UPS has special rates depending on how much a company ships. They probably pay around 30-40$ for shipping

    That is correct. Companies do receive a discount based on shipping volume. I think you'd have to be around Amazon shipping volume to get a rate like $30-40 for a package that large all the way across the country, though. We definitely aren't getting that big of a discount, but we are only one dealership.

    I can ship that same size/weight package from my shop for about $55.
    But we also ship thousands of packages a year.

    Regardless, it is what it is. I’m happy! Can’t believe it’s already on the way!

    :rofl:

    That had to have come directly from Toyota. Only they would do something like that. You'd be shocked with how they ship stuff to us.

    Working on some OEM-style dash switches for the light bar in the grille. Should have it available soon!

    Is there a lot of interest right now? From what I understand, there's no way to get the grill light bar right now since the gray market units on eBay are long gone.

    There's tons of other alternatives that can be retrofit to work.

    But that's not THE switch, it's too square, expect it'll fit in one of the other square holes? I'm interested...

    appears to be the standard 22x22 switch that fit the other holes, papadave418 has installed similar ones in his truck

    I ordered my TRD Pro grille from a Toyota dealership several states away from me. They actually told me they just switched to local pick up only. Thankfully they said they will still ship to me. They claimed the reason for this was because they had received a few of these grilles in already and the box was really damaged and some of the grilles were damaged. Therefore, they were going to allow customers to come in and look them over and decide if they still wanted to keep them or send them back and wait longer for ones that were not damaged. Now I am a little anxious. I ordered mine last week and they told me yesterday they are supposed to receive mine the first week of July then will ship it to me. Fingers crossed.

    I’m feeling really dumb right now. I guess I should have asked: Is the TRD PRO grill not compatible with the SR5?

    I’m either doing something really wrong or just an idiot to not confirm, but the TRD PRO grill isn’t even the same size as the SR5 grill and doesn’t have the same clip points along the sides and bottom.

    25A2D446-71D3-4162-ABF0-E178B38823BD.jpg

    Edit: the entire overall height of the grill isn’t even close lol. This is with them both lined up at the top.

    Definitely compatible with the SR5. You didn't mention what package (Base or TRD OR/Sport) you have but it's compatible with both SR5 grills. Check out the vids below:

    Some dude installing the grill on his base SR5 truck -

    Hope these help!

    Ok Toyota had to have a revision or something.
    The number of slats/slots on this grill aren’t even the same as any pictures or videoes I’ve seen.

    Whoa. I don't know how...but it looks like you got the grill for the 2023 Sequoia TRD Pro instead of the 2022 Tundra TRD Pro:

    Yep!

    That's exactly what it is. That's the same number of slots and all as mine.

    This grill I received is definitely not the right one. lol

    It's not the same size. (A good 2" too short in height) and none of the side or bottom clip points are even there like on the Tundra grill.

    Dude...you might have stumbled into a bit of a windfall. If it were me, I might keep it & sell that on the gray market like eBay or something. There might be some Sequoia owners who want to change the grill. lol.

    Well...yeah...but right now I just spent the last 2 hours ripping the front of my truck off with no grill. (Except my OEM SR5 that I'm not really wanting to put back in. lol)

    TBH I'd rather return it and, well, get the correct one lol.


    Well, I'll save hundreds of you the time in the future of asking for a part number. here's what's molded inside the grill:

    I'm assuming somewhere along the way someone at Toyota just mistakenly grabbed the wrong grill off of a shelf and here we are. lol
