    Depends on the way it mounts based on the grilles that failed, 9 months in the making and no issues here. Thx

    It was T'Rex X-Metal grille. Their response was "bend the brackets". I'll find the pics.....it was horrible. Now it's a paperweight sitting in the box.

    Top Hat, brackets on this grille are built into the grille for a solid mounting point. All one piece no separate brackets.

    More pics to come…

    The brackets that I'm referring to are a part of the grill. It's where they are supposed to attach to the surround on the sides and bottom is the issue. That grille was a waste of $800.

    I was noticing that too. Probably behind the lower surround where Patrick put his.

    Too many mods to come
    Cutting out some additional unused brackets that were hitting or could potentially rub in prep for the dune run tomorrow. Also painted the inner fender wells with steelit to clean it all up a bit. Jacked it up to work on it. Check out that droop! Still had more room to go before it was maxed but don't think I have the ceiling height in the garage left.

    Yeah just saw your thread, huge difference, looks like the integrity of the stock surrounding was ruined by cutting the ends of the black abs backing. And the grille itself has a gap in between the top hat also not good. The mesh looks to flimsy on that one too. Ours is built very different and solid when mounted.

    Post #23 is pretty much the same as the grill that I tried. You can see the tabs that I was referring to. https://www.tundras.com/threads/after-market-grilles.107190/#post-2760791

    thanks man. I’d get the rock worrier but I don’t want to run spacers to fit my tires. Also I believe these icons have more weight capacity over the rock worriers.

    Once done and released you will see the rest of the pics, the grille you installed is totally different. A lot of weak points based on the pics you posted on that grille. And you either have no bottom mounts or they are separate brackets where ours are built in the grille on the bottom as well to make it one true piece. Plus we use 2 sheets of stainless steel together for the grille and mesh. It’s as solid as it gets, Again we have had it on our test truck 9 months no issues, we also been designing this grille for over a year almost before we knew we had something ready for the consumer.

    There will be a spot for the sensor as well, that’s in its final stages along with couple options like center logo and choice between powder coated bolts or bare stainless look. There is a lot that comes into play when building a great grille, most grilles on the market are quick builds and lack attention to detail. Thanks !

    Thanks for the info. When you installed the PRO suspension, did you install this bracket too? Is it Necessary?

    Yes I installed he bracket and yes I think it is important. The Fox shocks have more travel length than stock. This bracket prevents putting stress on the speed sensor cable at full suspension travel. I did cut off the “ear” on one side to clear the RSB mount U bolt.

    I’ve had my HiRev tail lights on for a year now and have grown tired of them. Should have went with the smoked ones instead of clear. I put my originals back on. I’m fixing to have my HiRevs posted in 2.5 Marketplace if anyone is interested.

    Anything else needed when installing the PRO suspension? I occasionally tow a small trailer (about 1500lbs empty & 2000 lbs +/- loaded). My truck really doesn’t sag at all with the stock TRD off-road suspension. I know it will have less rake if any with the PRO suspension. Should I see what it looks like before adding anything to the rear?

    Not a bad idea. Might do it to my factory ones. Of course someone who shall remain nameless has sent me the link to Hot Tails. Geez, the mods never stop. :rofl:
