    starting to black out my truck. was in my local ace hardware and they were closing down so everything was 50% off and came across some 13 ga. expanded metal and thought to myself now is the time to do this. So I bought the the last sheet they had and then went to partsgeek and bought a aftermarket black grill surround and on to amazon for the turn signals. all invested is 60.00 dollars including paint (got that at ace).
    this is what i have tell me what you think![​IMG]

    Dang that looks great! I definitely either remove the emblem or lower and center it as it looks out of place.

    if youre going to keep the emblem center it and flip it upside down.

    check my grill out for reference.

    I like the grille. Look in some junkyards for pickups. They usually have some badges for you to take. I have EFI ones on my doors and a TOYOTA 4WD on my ARB.
