    fed ex delivered my new grillcraft grille today. i ordered the chrome looking one cause i figured if i didnt like it down the road i can always just paint it black. well.... it turns out this really isnt chrome looking at all. its more of a grey looking cooler. kinda weird but looks pretty good i guess..... would of thought for $170 bucks it would of been chrome or polished

    I think the silver will add a nice contrast to the black truck. If you don't like it you can always paint it.

    if someone wants a black one i still have a black 2012 grillcraft posted for sale in the classifieds since I have a Rigid with 20" led bar now... so it's never been mounted.

    $125 Local, or $125 plus actual shipping. The grill has never been installed, just removed from the box.

    that will look awesome with the lower installed also.. nice contrast where as black would have just blended in.

    What a pain in the ass to remove the front bumper. Especially when the truck has less than 800 miles. Lol. Gotta be gentle. Gotta be gentle.
