    Yeah they're in two parts. I don't have pics on me but they're here if you search. I think they had to glue them some how :confused:

    I'm a bit confused here...so which grille from partsgeek is the one with the black center which can be removed from the outer piece? I was hoping to take the black center part off the one I purchase, do the satoshi, pull the painted surround off my stock grille and melt the two together to make one complete grille...Has anyone done this with a 2010 model with the superwhite grille? just trying to make sure I'm getting the right parts since I really dont want to paint any parts to match the white truck if I can avoid it...

    Yes the grill parts geek comes in two pieces so that you can paint the surround. The certifit comes as one piece and you have to seperate the two. So yes you can take your white surround off and bond it to the other grill.

    Anybody else have this grill, I'm thinking of getting one. Wondering about the finish, if it is just plastic?
