Hi, Im have in mind to just change the upper grille... I have a 2018 Adventure trim and wonder if the upper grille is direct swap to SE grille?
Im worried that the lower valance bumper guard of the Adventure might not be compatible with the honeycomb grille from SE...and I like the look of the lower valance bumper guard of the AdventureI would think so... but wouldn’t that look off since the upper and lower grilles would look different? I believe you can also get the honeycomb style lower grille for XLE/adventure style front bumpers.
Hi @Budoy ,
Thanks for posting this. Can you please confirm if you used OEM or Aftermarket parts?
If OEM, can you please provide the exact part numbers. Otherwise, please provide the links of the exact ones you used.
I'm concerned because a review in one of the parts posted says "3 inches smaller".
I want to turn my 2018 LE front into SE.
Thanks in advance.
@Budoy Thanks for your expedited response. Quick question, is it your made in Japan or Canada?(Lower Front Bumper Valance)

Mine is a 2018 LE made in Canada. I was told that they varies depending on where it is made. I'm not sure what to do now. I read a review that Front Bumper Lower Valance Cover was 3 inches smaller for a user. He did not specify the country of manufacturing but I'm concerned about it.Japan.Mine’s a 2017 LE
The lower bumper valance for the SE model sticks forward quite a bit thus you need the matching lower grille and the front lower bumper absorber to accomodate the new part. Go to toyotaparts.com to see the appropriate parts available. I went the aftermarket route for the upper and lower grille as well as the lower bumper valance but the lower bumper absorber i had to get OEM as there was no aftermarket parts availableMine is a 2018 LE made in Canada.

It is possible if you use the right lowe grille, you can use the MESH lower grille for 2018 SE which is exactly compatible with your Lower Valance, so you don't need to modify anything.
