I want to put the T-rex billet grill on my V6 06 Tacoma, I saw them online and they look prettly sick:headbang: My question is how hard is it to install? Is it all bolt on or do I have to cut my old one out and make new holes for the new grill?:shrug:

You have to cut out the insert. The pieces that run horizontaly. Then used supplied hardware to mount. Dont be skeered.:headbang:

The billet grille will have little mounting tabs that need to be screwed into the stock grille shell. I had a billet grille on my 02 Tacoma from B-Cool billets. Have fun cutting out your stock grille!:cool:

I had the dealership where I bought my truck install mine and it took their body shop 4 hours to do it and they do them everyday. No way I trusted myself to hack on a brand new truck..:rolleyes:

I bought a 4" hand grinder (ryobi) 29.99 from home depot...with a cut-off wheel, use it for EVERYTHING ! but hacksaw blade, jigsaw, and sawzall are all fine too...when I worked metal fab, I used the grinder always. for grinding and cutting I've even used it to cut the arms off the chair I'm sitting in right now, wouldn't slide under the desk..
