    Careful Jeremy you usually get what you pay for. But there are always those diamonds in the rough. HAHA! Look good on the screen don't know if you'll think the same in person. You got a bad*** truck don't go cheap on the grill. There are alot of nice things out there and the grill is the first thing you see coming. Go big man big!

    Ity looks like the grill thats on your truck now except the part thats chrome? The price seems reasonable. Just be sure to save the bowtie off your old grill. Thats the grill to buy if you want to color match your truck - its smooth and ready to be prepped for paint.

    I partial for color matching so I would paint that bad boy white.

    That's my exact concern. That being said, the grilles I've been looking at are 10 times the price. I don't have an issue with that, but for $90 I figured this was worth taking a chance. If it ends up looking cheap, I'll just resell it and be out only a couple of bucks. If it ends up working, I get a big upgrade aesthetically for next to nothing. So it was worth a shot to me. Unfortunately, I won't know one way or another for a while, but that's ok. It'll be one of the first things I look at when I get home after hugging the kids.

    This is what I've not decided. It's also where I need to get a copy of photo shop and then learn photoshop. I'm switching all Chrome to black, but don't have an issue color matching either. If I kept my front bumper as it is now I'd likely go black for the contrast up front. If I decide to upgrade the bumper to a fab fours or something similar, I'd probably color match the grille. So many options...

    That was my problem as well there's to many ways to go about it but I bit the bullet and got the z71 color matched grille and fab four bumpers. I got them uncoated which I might regret but oh we'll my truck needs a nice jet black paint job

    Jeremy, before you buy it you might ask if it has to be painted. Black plastic that isn't primed or painted can often fade to white. My fender flares, for example, were black when I received them. Had I slapped them on without paint-matching them they'd have remained black ... for a while ... but would have ultimately begun to whiten.

    That said, there's nothing stopping you from taking some rattle cans to it to paint it, yourself, prior to installation. 3-5 coats of black followed by 3-5 coats of clear ... with 10 mins between coats ... would be adequate fade protection.

    For 90 bucks ... plus some rattle cans ... it's worth a shot. If it doesn't fit quite perfectly as long as you're patient and have some rudimentary fabrication talent you can make adjustments ... by making brackets, drilling holes where needed, trimming with a dremel, etc.
