    Had a busy month of May but still found time to do some mods/maintance. Did a full 30K service (man what a differnece). Used all Redline products in the trans and diffs. Truck runs better than new.

    Added URD short shifter, AVID front bar and sliders (line-x coated), painted emblems, supertop bestop, D-rings in the bed, Cobra handheld CB with firestik antenna, in-channel weathertech rain guards.

    In the garage waiting to be installed: Piaa 520 for front light bar, rear camera for my eclipse AVN7000, pop-n-lock, lamin-x smoked fog covers, tinted tails and a 12 block fuse panel with breaker switch to manage all these mods and the previous mods already installed.

    But, summer season (race season) is more dedicated to my other toy however, my tow truck must look good while in transit as well :D.
    See last pic for toy.

    Comment away please!

    It is made by LUND. I think I got it from JC Whitney a while ago. Those black dots are atcually screws with a J-hook type fasteners on the back that grasp the inner part of your stock grill as you tighten them. Therefore, no drilling required, no damage to stock grill and easy on/off applications.

    Excellent, thanks for the info. Again, very nice truck and grill. The not cutting/drilling definitely makes it appealing. How much did it cost?

    That's not bad, I tried looking on JC Whitney and the Lund sites but could not find the grill like yours. Maybe they stopped making it.

    interesting. I found the same thing. Best bet is to keep an eye on Ebay. Comes up occasically there also.

    Yeah it went out of production in late 2008. Believe me I did a ton of research on it, I got lucky and scooped one up on CL from a guy in CA while I was in japan last summer.
