    I got mine from 4runnerlifestyle and it’s perfectly fine. I’ve looked at some OEM ones that fit worse. Check them out.

    I just put on a TRD Pro grille on my 2023 ORP from Yota Expeditions and I liked the fact that the letters are actually screwed in and are perfectly straight plus they actually paint it flat black unlike all the others. For under 200.00 I think it was the best option for non OEM and it actually looks better then my buddies 2023 TRD Pro. They are a great company to deal with and have good customer service if you run into any issues. https://yotaxpedition.com/products/yota-x-trd-pro-grille-toyota-letters?variant=43353146261740

    How is the fit in the corners? Do they cover well enough to not see the paint color?
    Do you have pics of your TRD pro grille installed?
    I’ll take a look at their website.

    I think it covers the edges better then OEM as there might be a 1/8th gap if that. I dont know if you will be able to tell from my pictures but here are some showing it in my ORP.

    That looks great.

    Question - it seems there no longer needs to be a distinction between the 2014 - 2019 version and the one for 2023, due to the relocation of the TSS 'plate'...is that correct, and do the 2020 - 2022 models still need one that has the notch in the bottom of the valance for that same plate?

    Thats a great question that I honestly do not have an answer for. I think moving forward, they will filter out the older stock and just have 2014-2023 fitment.

    Does the valance you got have any sort of notch in the bottom edge?

    Thanks for the Pictures.
    Actually that’s the same color I have but it’s just an OR.
    It seems the TSS on the 23 is lower than my 22. Did yours still come with a notch for the TSS?

    Yes, it is actually notched for the TSS being at the top where camera is on the 2023. So 2020-2023 are all the same and are notched for the TSS regardless if its at the top or under the camera. If your in the market for a TRD Pro grille do not hesitate to pick one up from Yota Expedition.

    Thanks
    I’m wondering how will the color hold up in the future compared to OEM.

    It should hold up just as good if not better as Yota Expedition has them painted with a satin black paint where every other non OEM TRD Pro grille is not painted at all and this was the other main reason I went with this one over the other offerings out there plus the fact that the letters are actually screwed in instead of crappy tape holding them in.

    Thanks for the heads up on this. I just ordered it for my ORP, I think it’s a much better look than the silver bar and emblem.

    Do you know if the OEM is painted or is it just black plastic?

    Post some pics when you have yours installed. Thinking I may go this route with black emblems.

    Have you heard anything from YotaXpedition? I placed my order the same day as you, and they billed my credit card that same day. I haven't received any emails, order number, or tracking info from them (I checked the spam folder). I see that their site now says, "out of stock". I'm going to be pretty upset if they charged me for something they said they had in stock when it wasn't.

    I heard back from their customer service today. They are indeed backordered several months, and mine did not get filled in time. He did say they have a decent supply of ones that have one (or more?) of the plastic tabs broken off the grill, and they are selling them at a 30% discount and including a bolt and nut to secure them (the broken tabs are not visible, even with the hood open). I went ahead and changed the order to that one.

    Hmm, that YX one looks pretty good. I'm usually a stickler for OEM, but I might have to break my own rule.

    They apparently don't have a phone number, so yeah, I filled out the "contact us" email section on their site. I do have to say, communication is not their strong suit; I haven't received any communication from them aside from the one response to my email...not even a reply or an order invoice when I told him I wanted the "deal".

    Same here on OEM, I usually get all OEM, I was seriously looking into YX grille. Now that it’s on back order, this gives me more time to think about it.

    Has there been any issues with name plate coming loose regardless if it’s OEM or aftermarket.
