    I'm thinking about applying some high strength tape to make sure mine doesn't come off - I just snapped mine onto my billet - see below:

    Just another option. The stock emblem snapped onto the billet grille pretty strong, but it still needs adhesive...

    If you could that would be sweet! I am wondering how the quality is and looks installed. I wonder if it's plastic or metal the billet part.

    I blacked out the white between the grille fins so it would look more like it would on your truck. I thought it would look cool but after seeing it, I'm thinking, Eh?!

    For the original poster, I chose B no emblem. I like black grilles better though. I have a Grillecraft upper & lower. Since these pictures, I've spraypainted the radiator a little to hide that silver bar. I also added the lights behind the grille.

    Don't care for billet myself. If someone does do it... black or nothing. Personally I prefer black mesh (radiator painted/horn relocated ect)... but I actually like the stock grill myself. Unique and a bit dodge ish all the same.
