    Looks like the whole grille. I'm sure it's just a one-piece, injection-molded deal.

    In and of itself, it's neither good nor bad. Just saying that accounts for the price; it's probably not much more expensive to mold the entire thing than to mold just the inner grill.

    Pretty sure the factory grill is also one piece and also injection molded. It's just different than an overlay like a billet grill or something.

    getting there....
    looks to be the whole grille................but word of advice to you....................and i know cause i got an ebay grille for my 04...............they dont fit anywhere as good as the stock grilles fit, and on mine, where the front emblem mounts.......mine didnt fit worth a crap...rattled like crazy.....so i had to epoxy mine in. just a heads up. the 2nd generation grilles mount a bit different than mine does...............so you may be ok with it, but typically....cheap ebay stuff works, but the fit isnt great.

    I don't consider $150 cheap for a grille.
    IMO, $150 isn't low enough to be concerned with quality, now maybe if it was like $40, then yea I'd be hesitant.

    People have been talking about this grill on here for a long time but I'm not sure if anyone has pulled the trigger or not. I think it looks great here, but would love to see it on a truck.
