Perfect Fit, lower quality
PostedSeptember 30, 2016
ProsInstallation, low price, good look
At this price point I can't complain compared to my original Toyota grille. It fit perfectly; however, there were a few spots in the chrome finish that were spotted, like rust but on plastic. If I was overly concerned I could have removed the center from my stock grille and this one and swapped; however, my concern was the plastic breaking and that would have been worse.
It does not come with a "badge," so either use your original Toyota emblem or an aftermarket replacement.
I used medium strength loctite on all the bolts as I replaced them. As with anything plastic, do not over-tighten the bolts.

Ford Ranger grill

New grill mounted on my 2006 Ford Ranger
This was the old grill. Notice the wire tie on bottom right.
ProsRedesigned mount for Ford emblem.
I ordered the new grill for my 2006 Ford Ranger when I discovered that JC Whitney was offering it at same price as best deal on eBay. It arrived quickly and included all hardware. The new grill had built in clips that made it very easy to install the emblem. Smart design. I am quite happy with the results.
