    Looking for a grill mod. Decided against satoshi and Grillcraft MX since I'm not wanting to go totally stormtrooper. I'm now favoring the Grillcraft BG series (billet aluminum) but then saw this on eBay:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/05-0...ptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

    Less than 1/2 the cost of the Grillcraft BG. Trouble is, they don't list the manufacturer. I'm not buying it if I don't know who made it no matter how much they brag about their quality. They kinda look like Precision Grilles with the same phat name:

    Can any of you Californi's vouch for them? Thanks in advance.

    They look similar but the precision grill (at least in the photo in the link provided) doesn't have the triangular pieces that go on both sides of the grill that is shown on the ebay link. I'm guessing it isn't the same manufacturer.

    Chrome billet grilles are ghey... even worse on a white truck. But just my opinion.
