I like the truck a lot. Actually, I am usually not a real big fan of the billet grille since I don't understand its purpose. I really like the look of the stock Ford grille. However, it looks pretty sweet on your ride... Congrats man!

Pyromaniac,

I ordered mine thru the simpson tool company on-line for a total of $93.00 including s/h. It was on a factory back order from Stull so it took about 5-6 weeks to get.

Thanks for the complinents guys!! I wasn't sure if I should have stayed with the stock grill or not but I like the billet now that it is on. Maybe because it's something new on it...lol

I think the combo. of the new grille and whited-out blinkers definately go together. It looks pretty good man...

Ryan,

The installation turned out to be a lot easier than I thought. Apparently the lower tabs on my stull grill got bent somehow and that is what was throwing me off. Once I kinda layed it in place and stared at it for a few minutes I realized all I had to do was bend the tabs down and it all lined up perfect. I was able to use the provided bolts and backing nut thru my factory slots and I had it mounted in under 5 minutes. I would say the hardest part was removing the plastic fasteners from my upper plastic air deflector. I didn't have a tool to remove them so I had to do a lo tof twisting and pulling with needle nose pliers. But all in all it was a breeze.
