So the Alibaba grille does come with the center Toyota logo? I guess I'll take a gamble and order one with the lights. My OEM one is busted with only 2 bolts and a few zip ties holding it down. LOL!

The fact that multiple sellers in addition to SRQ and garage alpha are all offering these grille options at the same time with the same exact estimated ship time is pretty suspect of it all coming from the same supplier. which is the one selling direct through Alibaba for about half the cost. if we were within 50 bucks I would still buy local, but the price difference is huge and its pretty obvious nobody is sitting there handmaking this at this quantity like some have.

Screw it. Sent an email to Garage Alpha requesting they cancel my order. For the 03-05 version with raptor lights it was going to be $320.50 shipped to my door. I’ll be curious to see what the feedback is on the Alibaba direct ones.

Does anyone know how difficult it is to remove the factory grille?

From some posts here and on facebook, apparently, they do.. some people inquired with alibaba and were sent the picture with logo separate. Its the exact same product from what I can see..

Not difficult, but you’ll need new plastic tabs in case yours break

Just watch out for the hood release mounting clip. If you're not careful you'll snap the small plastic clip.

Otherwise the nuts might be rusted on there and you'll snap the bolt off at the end if you use too much torque to remove them. If you're replacing the grill, then it doesn't matter since they should have their own mounting bolts attached.

That is what the seller is telling people privately, in chat. My guess is they are afraid of running afoul of Toyota copyright stuff. If you will notice, most grilles on ebay, etc. don't show pictures of badges for the same reason.

My guess is if the badge doesn't show up (which lets be real, is a risk here), you could probably use one from an actual tacoma trd grille, but who knows. Worst comes to worst, I'll put some mesh and a classic Toyota emblem in there.

I just messaged this seller asking about the Toyota emblem and they sent me this picture. Probably going to end up ordering it. Others I've seen were $75 plus $140 for shipping but this one is $85 plus $46 for shipping.

After I posted, I went ahead and ordered it. Came out to $144 shipped, they're doing a $20 off special for upgraded shipping, I did the UPS expedited (originally $78, $58 after discount) with expected delivery for 10/12. The ocean freight shipping was $46 (no discount) with expected delivery between 11/18-12/17. I just paid the extra 12 to have it way sooner
