    1. First purchase was my billet grill.. painted black.. ebay special..
    2. Then my black/ cat eye headlights... another ebay special..
    3. 10" Kicker L7 with 800 watt amp
    4. Followed up with some Pro Comp Xtreme Alloy Series 7031 - Flat Black 17x9" with the stock tires for now
    5. N-Fab 2" Side bar/steps

    can i get some information about your grille? I want to do a black billet grille with lights behind it, like i see sooo many people on here with, but i havent seen any information about how to do it. I've read about alot of people mounting the billet or mesh grille to the outside of the stock grille, but I want to remove the stock insert and replace it with a billet grille, the way it appears you have yours.

    any advice? how do you do it?

    thanks!
