    It looks kind of cool. I think it would look good with the lights behind it.

    Is it made out of plastic or metal?

    Looks like a good deal just be sure to use your rubber seal and clips from your factory one. I doubt they come with it.

    well do you just want a new grill or do you want a new surround? I have the chrome one but bought the silver one to match the truck off of ebay for $85.00 then installed the grill-craft. Depends on what you want.

    The best place I have found to get the grill is http://www.usspeedonline.com Look on ebay and on here to see if you can find a white one to buy or trade yours for. It's not hard to install.

    No all you get is the center mesh. You have to cut out your own surround.

    think the mesh might protect the lights a little bit better then the other grill would!

    The grill-craft mesh grill is extremely heavy duty. I would think the whole front of the truck would fall off before something went through it.

    Yeah it seems way worse than it is. Do a search for grillecraft and you will find several install threads. I used a hacksaw blade to make sure I did not scar anything up.
