    Well.... I don't like how it turned out, but did the best I could with the time I have. I don't know if it's the photoshopping or the actual look.. but it just looks... weird!

    I agree. It does look off a bit. Do you think black paint will adhere to the chrome ABS look after a few bugs meet up with you at 70 MPH? I don't think the HD grill will fit. I have the GMC same body style as you and the grille is pretty deep. I'll take measurements if you want. The Chevy and GMC grilles can be interchanged for the same model class e.g. 2500 according to the e bay postings I have read.

    the black grill would look better on a darker truck. i saw a white truck like yours with a white grill instead of the chrome. it looked killer on it.
