    Yes, I just went through 4 or 5 pages of 1st gen builds looking for it.

    I am looking to see what a black 95-97 grille looks like on the trucks. If I could be so bold to ask for what a black 95-97 grille looks like on a Sunfire Red (or red) truck that would be awesome too.

    The only grilles I've seen so far are chrome, and they look good because the majority of the 95-97 bumper is chrome... so it blends nicely.

    However I want to see what it would look like with my 98-00 bumper.

    Maybe I should just head over to the "photoshop request" thread...

    Here is mine, it's a 2WD grille for the 96-97. I just ordered the 4WD one from partsgeek.com, should be here the 27th. Will post pics if that as well.
