    I have searched online and cannot find any shops that do things like install TRD Pro grilles, change that ugly silver valance(s) on the TRD OffRoad models, etc...

    I'd prefer to stick to shops that are familiar with the 4R specifically...

    The closest one I can find is like 6 hours away in Eastern PA (yota xpedition), and I'd prefer not to make a vacation trip out of it. Lol

    Anyone?

    Where in OH? Both of those are rather straight forward DIY jobs with a little YT education

    I need to call NEO about some suspension work. Are you familiar with them?

    Canton, OH area...I tried doing the front valance, and had issues getting some of those tabs off...some things I'd rather just pay someone...and that's one of them. Lol

    Ah ok. I don't have that model, but I thought they just twisted off from the back. I swapped out my upper grille recently and thought I was going to bust it, but it just needs a little muscle.

    I'm out in YTown myself

    Yeah they twist kind of....if you can get to them. Impossible to see, and just a big PITA honestly...whoever thought a big silver valance that literally matches NOTHING on the 4R was a good idea....like how does that person keep a job?

    Wouldn't hesitate to give Roman the business. Call him. Used on a variety of repair- air bags which was a major pia, but he fixed the leak proper, and cv replacement-

    got the parts from a connection in Cali, used part saved me some bucks. Roman is a mechanic not a parts replacer. Have used D&R also, another good shop run by

    people that know what they are doing.

    Thanks for the tip. Roman emailed me back quickly. They're gonna do my front and rear valance, and install my TRD Pro grille for me. Seems like a great shop and only 45 miles away. Much appreciated...
