    I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. A few 80s in the US should be getting them in the next couple weeks so be on the lookout for pictures! A company by the name of rcr4wd is making them out of Venazuala. Really great guys over there, and very good customer service. Just launched their website too! Rcr4wd.com

    Yes, it should not require any modifications.

    I kinda like (covet) my TOYOTA grill. I'll not a big fan of aftermarket grills as they can change the fundamental characteristics of the vehicle.

    Definitely a different look.

    If I were putting it on my truck I would attach some small opening expanded metal mesh/screen painted black to the backside to fill in the big open holes. I think that would give it a more finished look.

    As your title suggests (I'm assuming), filling in a few of the holes with flush mounted LEDs would make for an interesting look as well.

    Are all the square holes supposed to fit LEDs? Maybe it would look different with them installed?

    Agreed. Looks like one of those vinyl strap woven out-door chairs.

    Yes it is meant to take 6 led pods. I think it will look much better with our us spec headlights and leds installed.
