    I was wandering if anyone knows how much a chrome grill is worth for a 2004?? The reason I ask is I've found one for $40 in good shape and was looking at buying it to modify (mesh, billet or something) and take my sweet ass time without removing my current grille. I guess what I'm asking is $40 worth it or are there better deals out there? Thanks in advance for the input!

    If it's in good shape, then $40 is a good price. The non-chrome non-OEM repros go for $30 or so and the chrome repros go for $110 or so.

    It's in great shape, he replaced his OEM with an billet aftermarket shortly after buying the truck new in 2004 & says that it's been in his garage ever since. Seemed as if it was a good price, but I just wanted to check around a little. Thanks for the confirmation on the going rates for these grills!

    Shipping is around $40 - 50 for ground. I'm still trying to source one (non-chrome) locally to paint

    sweet!!

    ok, the box is 58inx12inx8in................and weight, im gonna guess around 20 pounds...give or take a little.

    now,that said, the bumper is used, and at the corners of the bumper,closest to where the lights are, the chrome has faded a little in those areas. just wanted to let you know.
