TOYOTA

This is only a steel grille insert, no factory surround is included with the sale. 

 

 

Specs:

16 gauge CNC laser cut and formed cold rolled steel, The insert is formed on the brake, along with a 5052 aluminum center bar and backing plate to save weight. All formed sections are very tight with no gap and fully Tig fusion welded on the front seam, then polished smooth. We don't stop there! After the grilles are polished to a near mirror finish, they then are blasted to a sandpaper finish and coated with a black texture Polyarmor Thermoplastic powder coating. This is matte black with a 36% gloss level, with a slight textured finish and is the standard powder on all our products.

  
There is no required cutting or drilling of the factory parts (in some cases reinforcements to the plastic might be needed). Simply remove the stock insert and replace it with the new one and bolt it down with the supplied black coated stainless machine Torx screws.

 

Our signature style one of a kind custom designed letters are stretched and cut into a 5052 Aluminum removable center section and a removable Aluminum backing plate for painting a contrasting color, including #10x24 threaded nutserts, installed for easy changes down the road. 

 
The grille comes standard with a Thermoplastic Powder Coat providing superb corrosion and impact resistance. The main picture is the standard insert with a backing plate in the color Quick Sand for reference.


Weight is 13lbs 4oz 

 

The insert is cold rolled mild steel. Should you scratch the coating, you will need to touch it up or it will rust. The mounting bolts can cut into the coating if not installed with caution. 

We also have a few reports in extreme cold weather that the factory plastic surround was getting a stress crack from plastic shrinkage. Additional steps may be needed to prevent this from happening.

There are 2 little notches in the plastic that is a fatigue point, which may need to be reinforced from the back side to support the insert. This is more so in extremely cold areas of the country.

A fiber glass repair kit that could be used on the back side of the plastic surround to strengthen the weak areas prone to cracking. It can be purchased here.  

The grille is pushing 14lbs, very ridged from its design and wont flex like the plastic. If off roading and/or hard driving, the plastic can fatigue, as well causing the plastic clips that mount the grille to break.

 

For installation instructions go here.

 

Note: This grille will mount to the 2018 plus trucks, but your TSS system will need to be disabled or relocated to do so.

Best Grill for Tacoma!
Ordered this grill and love it! Looks freaking amazing and way better than the stock TRD chrome grill. I highly recommend getting this! There's a great DIY self install guide at: tacomaworld.com/threads/bamf-3rd-gen-grille-insert-install.432410/
