    I guess this is part of the having a new vehicle, having to wait. I knew that I would be in the last group to get my grill. Oh well such is life I guess.

    Its been 100 degrees here. If I can get out of work early I may be able to get it on today.
    wish me luck

    **Editted to add a few pics. First is the grill/surround removed and awaiting the dremel. Second is whats hiding behind the grill. Third is a mock-up of the GC over the stock center section.**

    Just cut off all the ifs stuff and stock rear axle.....going big......... wet okole seat covers, red line hood struts, 4xi sliders, bruteforce rear w/ tire carrier, bruteforce front bumper with warn m8000s, bestop soft top, alpine HU and JL speakers, 2nd battery and isolator, arb air compressor, tank and tire fill, FXR projector retrofit by AMBIGUOUS, overhead console by KNINE
    All tore apart

    [​IMG]

    painted the rad surround and bamf light bar

    forgot to get pics of the horn relocation mod, easy to do

    [​IMG]

    I think it would look even better with the grille surround gloss black.

    Thanks for taking the time to put up pics guys. The mesh sure opens up the front end - kind of makes the grille look bigger than it actually is.

    (Still waiting for a tracking number in my world):(

    Makes her look meaner. I love it.

    I couldn't sand the plastic stock grille anymore. It was so uglyyyyyyyy. I know it sucks, but it's definitely worth the wait.

    Got any pics of it installed this way? Great idea leaving the plastic back there, much easier that cutting it all out.:thumbsup:
