    SO I decided that the plain billet grill looked kinda cheap. It didnt sit flush and didnt look right.

    SO I decided to cut out the center of a 2000 4wd grille and cut down my billet to fit inside of it. I did all the labor and mounted it up in about 1.5 hours. Here it is and what do you guys think?
