T-Rex offer several options of grille designs and I went with the Upper Class Grille. As expected, it was a perfect fit and easy to install following the provided instructions. I considered the horizontal billet design but wanted a grille that included a surrounding black bezel. The billet grille did not include a bezel. I love the Upper Class Grill but gave it 4 stars for the following 2 reasons. Once mounted, the mesh is more sheer than depicted in the photos. During the day you can see through the grill. I added a bug guard behind the grill (basically a black mesh) which helps darkens the grill but doesn't make it "full black" like in the product photos but certainly helps. Second was the emblem plate. While the instructions show the plate with two bolts to mount onto the grill, the enclosed plate had no bolts. After following up with customer service (they did get back to me on this) they informed me that the emblem plate mounts to the grille using the two small plastic tabs that are part of the the Toyota OEM emblem and is secured by added small rubber tubing "washers" behind the grill. They were right, it does works, but it is not very secure and can be pulled off the grille with a firm tug. They did however include a "T-Rex" grille badge which does have bolts, but i don't plan to use it. I wish they had put the effort of adding the bolts to the emblem plate rather than the T-Rex badge. But overall I am very happy with the grill, it is well constructed and looks great on my new Tacoma. Thanks T-Rex!
