    I am looking to change the grill look. I really want to throw in a mesh grill insert of some sort. The only one I can find that i like is the "GrillCraft". Not sure i really want to spend $300 on it. Does any one have any suggestion. I like the clean look of the grill craft. I was also consider a black billet grill, since it can be had for much cheaper. please share and pictures of mesh or billet grills/ inserts.

    Do you have a picture after its painted? I notices this grille other places. I am not sure how i feel about the rivet border. I do think it looks great though. Where did you get it? Price?

    Does anyone know if you can change the 3ea. "Amber" color lights on the grille above to a white (5k). I hate amber and I'm about to change out the DRL's with either a switchback or white (i read its legal in Texas to have a white blinker, but doesn't mean i want to get pulled over and remind the cop of that, and the Vleds are expensive. So still debating that one).

    The lens itself looks yellow to me. If so you'd need to at least find a clear one. Other than that I don't see why not. It's all plastic from what I can tell so my guess is that all of those things are just snapped in.

    How’s the quality of the abs? Looks pretty sturdy. Like that it’s near MGM from the manufacturer. Do they have the upper piece as well?

    My grill came with my truck. I was going to change out, but it's grown on me and am liking it more.

    It seems pretty near to the quality of OEM - I was pretty skeptical, but certainly acceptable for the price. I don't know if they have it or not - mine already had a black insert in the top.
