    Hey guys I'm in a toss up. What do you think about the Grillcraft grilles? I have a superwhite regular cab that i plan on doing a colormatched grille on. Can't decide if I should do the grillcraft or just paint the inside on the color matched grille black. If anyone has any white trucks with either of these grilles I would love to know what you think/did!

    heres mine i love them they fit great and look even better. i sanded down my factory grill surround and sprayed truck bed liner on it it came out perfect i also cut out the bars from the factory grill and blacked everything out behind there as well. i did top and bottom grill craft grills black mx series.

    You will love the N-fab bar. Super easy to install and quality is killer. If you are like me you are wondering how much room you have for lights. I am using the 7 Series Hella's and the are about 1.5" from the bumper. The grill quality is great too. I couldn't be happier with the whole setup!:yay:

    Is there anyway you could get a side shot of the front so I can see the spacing between the light and grille?

    Thats perfect thanks! I was just curious how tight everything is. I just need to decide which lights to buy now! They are going to take a beating up here driving in the snow and ice. Pretty soon your truck will have a regular cab twin. I'll get around to posting pictures one of these days. Thanks for your help.
