    Yeah I thought of dipping the grill too but I didn't want to go over board on the black plastidip. I might still do all black and do the logo white.

    The black dip looks good generally. I have a peeling spot on the grill of my 2009 lifted Crewmax. How does the dip hold up? Do rocks and bugs damage it? What is the cost of the dip and where would you find it. and I do like the looks of the BB Stacker truck. Thanks
