    SOLD!!


    Hey guy I want to get this grill on a truck. I would need to see pictures of it installed and would like to see it on a color matched shell, Im selling it for $150 with hardware shipped. It is the prototype so the fitment is just a bit off and one mounting tab it a bit off. It is 304 stainless steel and powder coated satin black .

    here are some pictures and the thread THE FACTORY SHELL IS NOT INCLUDED

    I would be interested in the grill, just don't have the extra money right now. It looks similar to the street scene equipment one, but nicer from what I can see...:)

    You pop the latch from the cabin and pull the latch with your fingers between the hood and the grille. I don't really know how else to explain it lol.

    ill take it if you are willing to negotiate price...$150 seems kinda high if it doesn't fit perfectly.

    Well i had a ton of pms for them in the last year so i made it and not one person that pmed me, wanted one. Im sure the price is a factor but they are the same price from the cutter as the 2nd gen i will prob make a few at a time before i do a big order and do a bolt together style

    ^ I think we all wanted one, but nobody wanted the protype you were selling because the fitment was a bit off. It may have been minor, but as anyone who is going to drop $200 for a grille is going to want perfect fitment. I think most of us were waiting for your final product, including myself. You should get an official list going.
