    photo from motor trend article, this is apparently how the grille marker lights may look, again this when they are showing off the prototype vehicles, so they may have changed, but looking at the grille pictures and this one, looks like they may still be the same shape hole in the grille for the light

    Just connecting the positive and ground connections from the wiring diagram to my battery. Don’t really have the knowledge or skill set to do much beyond that.

    One of my buddies from instagram said this: The harness for the light bar and the raptor lights is built into the "Engine harness #4" and is specific to the trd pro. I don't think it'd work. Probably have to get this connector and wire it into the dash switch like regular a/m lights.

    So looking at the wiring diagram on page 5, https://www.tundras.com/threads/grille-interchangeable.100356/page-5#post-2750550
    from what i have seen in videos of the testing of the trd pro, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=362JdT_DBJ4
    from my knowledge of being a mechanic for a few years,

    the center grille light can only be turned on when there are 2 conditions met, the switch on the left side of dash has to be turned on, and the high beam headlights must also be turned on,
    according to Takievo's post https://www.tundras.com/threads/grille-interchangeable.100356/page-5#post-2750623, the grille light also has a connection to one of the computers via CAN bus, probably to tell the ecm if both conditions are met, and if are then tell it to turn on the light

    so in my knowledge of how stupid manufacturers are (at least GM), that would mean to me that more than one pin of the light connector will need to receive a power or ground signal (IIRC most ECM's switch grounds)
    along with the power and ground for the light,


    parts.toyota.com shows that engine harness # 4 https://parts.toyota.com/a/Toyota_2...52016_10130464/WIRING--CLAMP/841440-8202.html
    but, good luck knowing/finding out which one it is though

    does this only work if it doesn’t have grille shutters?

    Do you have the full screen shot of that wire schematic?

    looking at photos of the Pro, they seem to not have grille shutters, but ByeF150HelloTundra installed the grille with the light and said that it would not fit together, he opened a new thread about it here https://www.tundras.com/threads/trd-pro-grille-installed-do-i-need-this.107069/#post-2761163

    but in this thread he said he removed the light and put the shutter back on

    the light will still work with grille shutters. You just have to add a spacer to mount the shutter a little further back. Really easy, and there’s plenty of room. Only reason I returned my light bar was because I’d rather wait until something that I can actually get some utility out of gets released. Didn’t want a $200 showpiece in the middle of the grille if I would possibly just swap it out with something else later (if nobody figures out the wiring)

    This is why just slapping an aftermarket 20" light bar is probably the way to go. After all the recent dust storms we've had here, I'm thinking of putting an amber light bar behind the grill.

    Has anyone done the TRD Pro Grille install on a TRD Off Road yet? Just want to make sure the grill shutter piece isn't going to be an issue.

    Also- What has everyone's solution been for the front camera? I know in the video, he had a temporary solution but am hoping for something a little more secure than one screw lol.

    well, i have another thread open, https://www.tundras.com/threads/who-is-willing-to-take-apart-their-truck.106639/
    am willing to design a 3d printable one, need measurements of the camera and connector among other things, but no one seems willing to help out and get me the measurements that i need, so kinda at a standstill

    the grille i ordered, as i was told by the dealer won't be in till end of the month, so i don't have one to get the grille measurements i need either

    More than that if you have a chrome "mustache" surrounding it and want to either black it out or color match it, like I do... sheeesh, and this is only the beginning.

    drilled some holes in the back and bypassed the OEM connector and circuit board and put power directly to the ballast/igniter thing that is in there

    im going to want to turn this light on at free will, not only when the high beams are on, im sure there are other modules, harnesses and switches that would be needed, i tried every damn possible combination of wiring that stupid OEM connector up to try and get it to work, just would not come on for me, hell i even bought a one month sub to Toyota TIS just so i could look and see if it would help figure it out, kinda wasted my money as there isn't jack on there that is specific to the TRD Pro

    Power to the ballast connector Red and White wires
    Ground to Black wire
    not sure what the 4th grey wire is for
