This is a mesh grill piece 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 piece is 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.

Yes, please watch the install video we have available for more info.
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
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.
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.

Awesome product. It sure makes a custom grill project much easier when you don’t have to sit there and source the mesh, buy more then you need, then scratch your head on how to size it, cut it and bend it.
Everything fit how it was supposed to. They even provide product videos with instructions specific to your vehicle.
Overall, very happy with the outcome
Got here in good condition, nice and straight and was cut perfect so fitting it was a breeze

This is my second time installing a CCG mesh grill in a 1996-2002 4runner. It's a good product and the fit and finish is great. All you'll need to complete this, is a hobby saw, mesh backing for body filler, body filler of your choice, some e9000 glue, sandpaper, paint and a bit of your time. I bought the flat black grill this time, but wish I would have bought the gloss again. Nothing a little paint cant fix, but the gloss does look better in my opinion. I would also suggest using an OEM grill shell, as the aftermarket replacement grills tend to be flimsy.
Nice Upgrade .
