    Looks good on silver as well! But that didn’t stop me from switching it out for a pro when I got black wheels.

    I like the grille! But is there an option to not have raptor style lights?

    Unfortunately not. I’m not sold on the raptor lights yet myself. I may just paint them black to match the grill.

    The 2018/2019 version is more of a black chrome finish which helps tone things down. I added the black SR grille surround and like the result.

    I really like the Pro/Faux grille, but went the easy route with the surround. If I didn't have the sensor in the grille, I would have swapped for a Pro probably. Taco Grille Update.jpg

    None yet, several planned
    Switched mine to the pro grill, but agree the stock grill does look good on the lighter colors, like white and silver.

    I just wish the emblen/radar cover in the OEM looked better. I think it looks good with the black surround. Hopefully the aftermarket comes up with a cool replacement for it.

    Yes the wiring harness comes with it and I will post some installed pics. Hopefully I get around to it this weekend!

    question regarding the metal grills is are they going to expand and break things? I recall seeing some one on here where it happened to their truck
