Wrecked my truck so I had to get a new bumper cover. Decided to try and fab my own lower bumper. Still up in the air if i want a winch or not, hmm?
I ended up making some grill inserts
for my buddy and my truck. Now to wire it up and find time to make that bumper.

I would be concerned about ram air flow to the AC condenser and radiator. That insert seems to block quite a bit of air flow by the looks of it.

Living in south Florida were even the mosquitos complain of ball sweat I can tell you that temps Dont go up even in dead traffic. A lot comes from the lower cut out in the bumper.

Wow you should fab that up and sell it! I would be interested. How much did it cost you or are you willing to do a write up?

These look sick! Can you do a honeycomb design?

How much are you selling these for?

And what is the chrome portion of the grill painted with in that last photo?

What I want to know is how your truck changed colors after wrecking a bumper. LOL ::wink::

I have an idea I've been toying with. It's based on what I've seen on the front grille of many Tacos, which looks pretty nice. Its a blacked out grille that could have "Nissan" cut out on an insert, and mounted in the center panel on a mesh or expanded metal grid. The inserts would have a border covering the edge of the mesh, and there would be bolts or rivets mounted all around. I know I could make the grid myself, but the border might be challenging without the tools you have at your disposal. And the "Nissan" logo in the middle would be pretty much impossible to do by hand. I photoshopped a mockup of what it looks like if this interests you...

I started experimenting with mesh. I did this lastnight hence the poor pic in my room. Its a mesh with a 40watt LED bar and some driving lights (4 led).

I like the tacoma look with the name on it. I was considering what you mentioned, i just need to get the mesh right and maybe ill make one like you mentioned with a removable nissan name
