    Default Is the NNBS Denali grille made of plastic??

    Hey guys, I recently bought a Denali grille to replace my lame black plastic grille. I bought one off Ebay, and when it got here I was shocked. The thing is made of ABS plastic. Sure it looks nice, is shiny, and pretty solid for pastic, but its PLASTIC!

    So my question is, is the OEM grille that comes on the Denali's made of plastic too? Or is it aluminum or something? Answers are apprecriated I need to know whether or not I should send this one back and order off GMpartsdirect.

    It is plastic. All grills all, they have been since the 80's maybe even earlier then that.

    Post some pics. I'm looking at making mine look like a Denali as well.
    Sometimes the best part of my job is that my chair swivels.

    I will post pics after it's installed. (Guess I'll just keep it.) I also order black LED halo headlights today, so when they get here I will have them put in ASAP. Not doing the job myself as taking off the grille is a PITA.
