    Looks Great on that F-150.... It will look better on your Silverado......I think after you have it installed I would take some great HD shots of the truck to send to them So they can post them up on their site...Your truck would look great on there...

    Seems like you are sold on that style grille so you should just go ahead and get it, I'm sure it will look good on your truck with the look you have going with it. I'm still not a fan of it like I said in the other thread, here's a pic of the old stock car look that I said it reminded me of.

Yeah all i've seen is them on the Dang FORD! I think my kit comes in 2 pieces i seen on 1 site say that but i thought it was a 1 piece grille shell?

    Well the guy Emailed me back and said that Smittybilt m1 grille only comes in 1 piece right now i assume he was explaining for 09-up f-150's and the superduty's! I told him to be more specific since he didn't explain either about if it was a 2 piece grille! Either way he should reply back sometime soon but i really want a piece grille if not i tolf him to let me know soon s there available!

    Response from Eric Newell @ performance truck products: I see what I can find out. I know on mine I had to cut the center out, I'm guessing this one leaves the bowtie and cener bar. It may have to do with rigidity. I do know the Smitty built brand is 4wheelparts in house brand stuff.


    Well from what the guy told me is with the Smittybilt m1 grille the 07-11 Chevy silverado 1500's have the 2 piece grille. I'm still not totally sure if they are inserts or not because he told me that the Chrome horizontal piece in the center of the stock grille that the bowtie is stays and the rest of the grille border and shelle is the black border with the chrome rivets with black stainless mesh. I think he told me that it helps the ridigity of the grille which i could see the point. If this is how the grille is i think i could buy it even though it's not a True 1 piece. I like the Idea of having the stock chrome piece in the middle and my black bowtie and it doesn't take away the whole stock grille just makes it look more custom that a plain 1 piece mesh grille wouldn't yall think?
