    Hey Taco group, I just wanted to find out what you guys think about the Billet Grilles?
    I'm interested in the Horizontal style but what's the deal with the hood latch? do they give you some kinda extention? will it be a pain to open my hood later?? or is it best to stay away from this upgrade.

    Thanks for your input......

    My hood latch has an extension and it not that bad to open but I like the look of the grille.

    Funny you mention this. I just installed a Stull Billet Grille insert on my 04 yesterday. Came out beautiful and the hood latch extension is very functional. Definitely a high quality grille insert kit. I will have pictures of the grille, and the hood latch extension kit in my gallery later tonight. I purchased the Stull grille insert kit from Summit Racing and had it in 3 days. Around $130.00 to my doorstep.

    Check it out:
