    Hello!

    I tried the search method and find acres of Satoshi threads. As I have all the mechanical skills of a grapefruit, I'm hoping someone can offer a linky to a pre-made drop-in. I do not want to attempt to build my own as I'm quite sure that exercise will end in disaster, with me more-than-likely having to buy a new grill. Ouch.

    I checked GrillCraft; my truck isn't listed. I tried Custom Car Grills, same problem. I tried a Google search, but my God, how mant websites are on the 'Net anyway??

    My truck is a 1999 two-door base model, two-wheel drive, base motor and auto-trans. This truck gets no more basic than this. :)

    I want to get an emblem from Andres (Horns on fire), but I'd prefer the mesh look with the largest emblem he offers. I can't find anything that speaks to a drop-in for my truck either here or on the 'Net, so I'm hoping someone can offer help.

    Thanks for your time.

    Cheers!
    Bill

    I could... But only like the one I did before... The mesh is .032 thick vs. .063 thick like my regular mesh.
    I'm pretty backed up with orders right now so there would be quite a wait...:(

    OK, bummer. I like the offer, it's the wait-time that bums me out. No worries, chances are I'll live. :) Thanks for the offer though.

    How 'bout it Friends ... any thoughts or links? I can't be the only person with a truck in this configuration who is wanting a pre-made mesh insert ...

    More than the wife knows!
    you could go to partsgeek.com and get a replacement grill for 25 bucks and try to make your own. If it dosent turn out not alot of $$$ put out. I did mine this way so i had the OEM to fall back on if it was a mess. Get some expanded metal from ace hardware and Go For IT!
