    Scrolling on ebay and saw a grille that I haven't seen before. What do you guys think???
    Looks kinda like the 2.5 gen pro grille.

    Cool, but not for the $250+ they were going for. I think they dropped the price to $168.
    I actually contacted the supplier to see I they had any distibutors on eBay. Looks like they're testing the waters.
    Once they get a vendor i bet the price will drop a little more.

    It has potential, just don’t like the fact that there’s no separation from inner and outer grill. Going to be a PITA to color match and make it look clean.

    I just ordered mine today. Will update with the quality and pictures. They are on sale right now for $168 shipped on eBay. I have been taking to the seller also, maybe we can get a group buy going and he will lower the price.

    @nschmittsd thanks in advance. Have 3 options for changing out my grille. The new 2.5 gen style. Some EAG grille with amber lights or an OEM Honeycomb grille. Would like to see how they all look like installed.

    Those are the 3 I'm looking at as well.
    I kind of wish they had the Honeycomb without the LED lights or lower cut outs. Just the mesh all the way through.
    They have one but it eliminates the little side wings and not sure I like it.
    I was even thinking of getting that one and removing it from the frame and seeing if I could fasten it to my OEM frame.

    This is the one I have, I felt the same way about the little side wings, but I think it turned out really well on my truck.

    The grill center will not work with the stock surround btw. You will have to use their surround. It was a matte black plastic.

    @Darkgoatracer so you have to use the whole grill and paint to match pretty much right
