    Same mesh, It is attached by actually separating the grille and inserting it between, then silicone and Jb weld to "weld" the grille back together.


    Price would be as close to cost as possible

    Grille is ~$45
    Mesh is ~$20
    Labor and gas to get grilles is ~$35
    Shipping will be determined but will be at exactly what it costs to ship, no markup.

    So if shipping is about $28 dollars you're looking at about $130 for a complete grille with mesh all done and shipped to your door.

    I am interested, does it mount up to the stock brackets, or do you have to mod the truck to fit?

    what about pricing for the base model nonchrome grilles? Can you get those? Been thinking about color matching my grille for a while. maybe i could just color match the new one with mesh

    I could do a non chrome one if you wanted. I may even paint it for the price of the spray paint if you wanted.

    Again this is just in the planning stages, and I don't have any grilles on me yet just gauging interest.

    I might be interested, but my current grill surround is color keyed and I would like to keep it that way.

    Also, do you have any photos of what it look like from the inside? I don't have any issue with using JB Weld, but would like to see before I order to make sure it looks like it will last. I don't want to lose the grill if I hit a bird or something.

    Not that I don't trust your work - it looks really great, but I just want to be sure.

    Thanks,

    I can get some pics on Wednesday, it's already dark here right now. But the grille I forgot to mention, is welded back together with plastic on the factory plastic welds, then siliconed and JB welded.

    Here is a pic, the plastic is welded back together, then I used Silicone to make sure it stays :D
