    I recently added six (6) very subtle mods (all for less than $100 total) to the front of my 2021 TRD ORP. Can u spot all six?

    I hear ya.. But:

    1.) the Toyota Emblem just looks cooler in black (It was only $5!)
    2.) The small tri-color TRD logo is so small & subtle, that it's just cool too (It was only $8!)
    3.) The EXTRA TRD emblem, lower right ($15), I'll admit... is overkill, and totally unnecessary. I may remove it shortly. I'm still experimenting...
    4.) The Front License plate holder ($35) is 2" thick rubber and prevents damage/scratches/ dents to front bumper when others try to parallel park in front of me. I'm in Brooklyn NYC, so this is a real concern... Also, front license plate holders usually have some kind of logo/badging anyway... No way I was gonna give free advertising to some random dealer
    5.) The Deer-Whistles ($6) actually serve a useful genuine function: to prevent accidents between me/my family and stray large animals such as racoons, deer, bears, skunks, dogs, cats, etc... They just happen to also look kinda cool too
    6.) The Skid Plate Decal was free - It came with the License Plate Holder (#4 above). Nobody sees it unless they're leaning down and looking underneath... My pic was shot from a low camera angle just for posterity, for you all

    The Led fog-lights came with the car - I didn't install/add-to or modify them.

    Basically, I may remove #3 above if it starts to get on my nerves... The only other thing I may do to the front is:

    1.) Plasti-dip the long horizontal line on either side of the front-center Toyota emblem in black. I don't know why, but the chrome bothers me. It strikes me as too "suburban mall" ratty
    2.) Add either 2 or 4 'behind-the-front-grill' lights..(or a light-bar)
    Something like this:

    or this

    What do you all think?

    Thanks all for your input!

    Some good cheap mod ideas there, and I did the black Toyota emblem myself. I just happen to think that four TRD badges is three too many! Where did you get the rubber license plate holder from?

    I cut the TRD portion off of the standard plastic TRD license plate holder ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NBDJQK1/) and glued it onto my Flexy-frame.

    Fantastic - I was looking for exactly this! Thanks so much for bringing it to my attention. Saves me from having to "plasti-dip" those dumb chrome horizontal bars - This is a lot quicker, cleaner, & easier

    Looks great. Planning on doing a little carbon fiber vinyl wrap to de-chrome mine this weekend—only $10 off Amazon. Picked up that idea a while back off the forum somewhere.

    Who are you asking? My OP had no circles. One of my followups had 6 circles. It was someone else (jvinhj240) who errantly responded with my picture + 8 circles. (The 2 Fog Light circles were his error, as they were not mod'd)
