    Great reviews on other sites and forums for these new Chinese made Pro knockoff grilles. Originally were selling on Ebay for around $250. Now are being mass produced and people receiving them are very happy with the quality. I personally had no intentions of swapping my Sport grille. After watching the prices drop to $140 or less with so much positive feedback I am considering buying one just to try the look on my truck. Not usually one to support China but my superb quality Clazzio leather seat covers are Chinese made. I was wondering if people here have been buying these. Beats the heck out of paying $400 plus from Toyota which are probably made in Thailand anyway. With Christmas around the corner this is now on my wish list.

    I’m thinking the price is going down because you won’t be able to use them with the new TSS-P technology. Supply and demand.

    I do like the chrome grille but for that price might try the look. Can always get $$ back on CL if I don't like it.

    Bit the bullet. Worth a try for $140. Will try it for a week. If I don't like it will go on CL for $125 a week later.

    You have the same Tacoma as me, Blazin Blue accesscab. I've only seen about 3 Gen. 3 access cabs ever. The black grill looks great on mine.

  10. Just ordered mine. $140 with free shipping is kind of a no brainer. I’ll let you know how it goes.

    Looks like a lot of guys are getting the ones without the letters and having to purchase and install them. Drilling and glueing. Saves some money and looks good if done right.

    Now you've seen 4 Lol. You have to drive out to Idaho, Oregon and Washington to see the most access cabs ever. I've seen more toyotas in those states than all the other states combined. Lol. I had to buy one so it would fit in my garage.

    The double cab short bed is the same length as the access cab. Both 212.3” long

    Had to have a long bed to haul a 12 ft kayak. Short beds don't make sense to me Lol.

    I’ve had the short beds but regretted it every time I hauled anything. I wouldn’t have anything but a long bed myself.
