Billet grille will be black if I keep it, I have the side pieces also but not the scoop or lower valance. Not sure if I will keep or get mesh instead. Craig what mesh do you have that is close to the Grille craft MX mesh grille?

Thanks a lot!!!! I was pretty nervous at first but so happy I did. Even did BHLM the same weekend. Both turned out pretty good. Such a big difference in the way the front of the truck looks.



Here is the MX grille mesh.

I do not have a mesh comparable to that but customcargrills.com does. I recently did a grill with their mesh...

So I finished my Billet Satoshi today!

Here are a couple of shots before I installed it - It is a full depth (2 1/2") Satoshi





And before & after shots of the install.





I've got to mess with the triangles a bit more to get them to sit correctly. The sit back so much that they are hitting the sides of the headlights. That is why in the last pic they do not line up with the main grill.

I'm not 100% sold on it yet. - Don't get me wrong, I really like the look, I'm just not sure if I'm committed to it yet.

Thank you,
~ Craig

Take out the hood scoop Billet and it will look much better. With an insert in the scoop, there's too much chrome horizontal lines going on in the front...Simplify it!

I'm not sold on either chrome or billet but it is your truck , if it looks good to you, keep it!

Otherwise, looks good.

I plan on loosing the scooped hood sometime this summer so that's just temporary anyway...

Looks great. The mesh thing is old hat, along with black wheels.
