    I e-mailed these folks: ewpassusa@gmail.com and asked for a 5 piece kit.

    I think I paid about 150...and they are the 4mm bars.
    Haven't installed it yet- but my replacement parts are on the way (a piece got damaged in shipping).

    I'll be painting and installing over the weekend.

    Good luck with your hunt and decision.

    yeah, i'd go with the 4mm like whats already on my truck. lol, i guess im a bit biased. i got my 3 piece kit off ebay for about $65 (i think?) but it took some work to make the main grille fit. a little sanding on a bench sander and a buddy and a large piece of steel tube to put a bit of a curve into it was necessary for a good fit. for some reason the main grille was perfectly flat without any contour and it just didnt look right to me before we did some work on it. guess you get what you pay for....
