This is a mesh grill piece with Big Letters that is pre-cut and pre-bent for a Toyota 4Runner from 1996-98
The 1996-98 grill frame also fits on the 1999-02 model, so this will work with those years as well if the grill frame is swapped to the 1996-98 style. Our pre-cut mesh pieces are made in the USA.
This mesh piece will fit into your existing grill after modification (as shown in our installation video). Lettering can be added to the upper mesh, either pre-installed or sold loose.
Only the mesh and letters are for sale; factory grille is NOT included. Full replacement grilles that include the grille frame are available here.
This mesh piece only fits on the 1996-98 grille frame, which then can be installed on a 1999-02 4Runner. This is not a direct fit onto a 1999-02 grille frame.
Does this include the factory grill frame?
This specific item is only for the mesh portion. We have pre-made grilles for this 4Runner available here
Do I need to cut my factory grille to install this mesh piece?
Yes, please watch the install video we have available for more info.
Can I install this mesh piece directly to a 1999-02 model year grille?
No, this mesh piece will not directly fit a 1999-02 grille. The mod is only intended to work with the 1996-98 grille frame, which can be swapped onto a 1999-02 4Runner
Will a 1996-98 grille fit my 1999-02 4Runner?
If you're using a 1996-98 frame, the one and only thing that can sometimes be a potential issue is the female part of the grille mounting clip. Some 1999-02 clips aren't as tall as the 1996-98's. If this is an issue, there's a few different fixes. Either make the female end of the clip taller, swap the clips to the 1996-98 version, or cut off the attachment clips and bolt on the grille.
What is the mesh style that is used for this?
We use the Perforated SS mesh which is available here
if you are looking to either make your own mesh pieces or add-on more mesh.
What is the "Letter Installation" option?
If you select "Yes", then we precisely center and space apart the letters, and apply two coats of weatherproof adhesive. This will ensure the letters stay onto the mesh for the life of the grille.
If you select "No Thanks", then we ship the letters loose and the installer will need to perform the application technique to adhere the letters to the mesh.
