    Hey everyone! I’m happily a new 2023 ORP owner as of Tuesday! Been loving it and can’t wait for the many years and smiles it will bring.
    One question I have is why my grill looks a little different than what I’ve seen on here? I’m talking about the chrome lines next to the Toyota badge. Are these something I can take off or would have to do a complete grill switch? Attached a picture for clarity

    Oooh look, another mod.....

    Greetings, neighbor! South Arlington here.

    Different trim's have different grills. Some of that chrome strip, some don't have it all and have the 'heritage' style grill (It says "TOYOTA" instead of the symbol)..

    I don't have any chrome on mine. If you want, they make blackout overlays to get rid of that.

    Chrome deletes for the win. I recommend upgrading the double sided tape with the 3m stuff.

    Just enjoy the shiny sombrero! Chrome deleting is a slippery slope and you wind up pondering dual swing rear bumpers.

    Hey neighbor! Thanks for the link. Also I love that 40th edition you got there! I was going to get one, but I couldn’t justify spending 5K over sticker! :eek:

    5K over sticker? The place that I got mine gave me (almost) 5k UNDER sticker; plus they tossed in a bunch of accessories.

    11B - Army Ranger 93 - 97.

    I haven't seen/heard about any local groups for get together's and stuff, but I'm sure there are. Check the regional section.


    Oh, yeah...I think the dealership was short on sales for the month of Sept (I bought it the last day of the month in Sept/23'). My drive away price was just under $47k @ 6.28% apr. It wasn't what I wanted, but it was the best that Toyota was offering to people with an 800+ credit score.

    Yeah that's not what you'd expect with credit like that but that's the times I guess... Any mods you recommend I look into?
