    Check out my build
    I dont know if mine is that specific brand but it's a cheap chinese replacement. I painted it to match and it is perfect. No issues with fitment or quality that I could see.

    So right. I was driving 35mph on a 55mph because I knew it would be a little slippery. Next thing I know I begin to fishtail violently and slide at a 90 degree angle into a 4 1/2 foot deep ditch.As soon as it went in I turned off the engine. The truck dropped onto the two frame rails and crushed the front bumper and grill but thats it. Very Lucky. About 1 minute after I go in a guy pulls alongside in a lifted Chevy and asks if I have a strap. We get it hooked up and after two tries my truck pops out of the ditch. The truck starts right up and I drive it home.

    I have that grille on my truck and I have no complaints. It comes in a mega sized box, but thats really it. I'd say buy it!
