U.S. Army Custom Grille Emblem Design/ Idea i'm thinking about gettin made!
I have a idea for the Paramount Restyling Black Evolution Grille that's the RBP look alike that is all black with chrome rivetss. I have been looking online and have seen that they are a 1 piece replacement and fit just like the stock grille shell. The pic's i uploaded recently on the grille look nothing like the actual pic's i have seen on other trucks with the grille i must say i'm impressed for the price $305.
Anyways about the Custom Grille Emblem to go in the middle of the 1 piece grille i have contacted someone who can make me some custom emblems and at a vair price. The emblem is gonna be the Star logo just like the RBP grille emblem except is goin to be powdercoated gloss black and the outline of the star is gonna be chrome to go along with the grille. The U.S. Army is gonna be cut out or punched out inside the star. I plan on not coloring the outline of the punch out of the U.S. Army but if anyone knows what color would look right and not look cheesy let me know.
I havent heard back from the guy but i'm sure the Emblem is gonna cost a good bit but i think it will be worth it in the end. I want a emblem that represents the Military since i'm in it without breaking any rules by copying other brand grille. I have been debating if he could maybe add a small thin piece of metal or aluminum or even plastic something to put behind the U.S Army cutout and have it maybe dipped in a pattern of the Digital Camo so they background is the same color of our uniforms. Anyone let me know what you think i just wanna do something different. Thanks, Jake

I love this idea! I think a black and silver emblem or the digital camo would look great! I thought about military green for a second but then I realized that might clash with all the rest of your truck being black. Would be cool if you could do some photoshop work and give us an idea of what it might look like!

www.billetbadges.com only reason i found it because i was looking around to see where a reliable site could possibly make this for me. I'm going to pay good money to get it paid so i don't want it half assed if you know what i mean so i think they are legit. Yeah i would like the Star emblem to be a cutout piece of chrome so when they get ready to paint they could just tape of the outline to keep it chrome then powdercoat it gloss black but i like the idea of silver also with how my truck is setup. The Digital cammo seems like it could be a simple mod on plastic,metal or aluminum but a very thin piece to put on the back of the emblem to sit flush so the cutout of U.S. Army will appear in the digital cammo which is a great idea i think!
I'm still not sure if the emblem would look best in the middle of the grille or possibly on the sides of the grille but i'm leaning to just put it in the middle of the grille. I'm sure he can fab something to make the emblem easy to put on the grille without a hassle hopefully. Idk how i came up with this idea because i have never seen or heard of this done before and that's what i like the most is being different and standing out than doing the exact what other's are doing with ther trucks. I was thinking of maybe doing something for the back tailgate emblem but not sure of what to do just yet. I think i will leave the back emblem alone and probably take it off to not put too much of the custom look on the truck the grille is enough i think it will stand out more just doing the front grille emblem.
I'm actually thinking of also getting a badge like this done but the Desert edition want just be black like this one maybe i want it the same digital camo color patterin inside of the lettering and can put those where my gm logo's went on the side of the door's and instead of chrome do the powdercoated gloss black would look very nice!
This is some truck badges he made. He makes custom emblems and badges.

Not that the truck already isn't one of a kind. But i think that the emblem would really set the truck off. Digital Camo would be a first choice for me, I think that it would really sit well with the black, make it stand out nicely. I am looking forward to seeing some pictures of the finished product.
Have you thought of getting the piece machined and then sending it off to get dipped? I dont know if it would be cheaper or not... just a thought

The Star is like the RBP but isn't cutout how there's its just a solid one and podercoated gloss black. Inside the star i want U.S. Army and a small star in the middle. I want the same coloring as the desert edition badge but like i said if he can't do that i'' have to settle with the silverish/greyish color. I also was thinking about the outline of the Star half the outline in desert camo and other half regular digital camo just the outline of the grille emblem star that would even be sicker! I hope he can do everything because this is a great idea i came up with nd never seen or heard anyone have this kind of grille!

I like it, sounds awesome man. Any idea on how long all that will take?

Also you can send pic's of designs that you want and even have them drawn out and they will design it for you. I think after this order i might get another Badge for the tailgate that say's Desert Edition and was thinking about side badges but i don't think i will or not i don't wanna put too many on the truck wouldn't look as good. I think you should give them a call and make a design and you don't pay anything until your happy with the design!

Those badges he has made are awesome! I bet your pumped about this! That desert edition is pretty sweet too. I like where your going with this. A good idea and your keeping it in moderation. I like good clean additions like this. And best part the meaning behind it all.
