New Grill

Found a FX4 grill is the for sale section on here for $200+shipping. Bought it, took it apart, and had it painted REALLY cheap. Now I think I have a really custom King Ranch Grill.

Sorry for the bad pics, got dark fast. Ill try to get some better ones this weekend.









Sorry the truck is dirty.

Also talked to the guy about the fender vents, I'm thinking about getting him to take off the vents and cover the holes and fill it in, smooth it out, and repaint the whole fender. Looking at taking all the chrome off except for the exhaust tip and hopefully some chrome BMF Novacanes sometime.

What do yall think?


Oh, and I took off my 4x4 Stickers too.

Not sure, if it gets bad, I can just get it repainted.

looks great. I was so happy to put on my H.D. grill and get rid of the KR grill

Lets just say not quite stock.

I was afraid that the headlights were gonna stick out real bad, being that they are still chrome. But they dont look bad with the spearco i/c behind the grill.

I wouldn't do the vents!! I heard that they are needed for air flow and it does make sense.... maybe just get the inside of the vents painted

just my thoughts

I thought of that, but didn't think they were that critical. Thinking about painting them the copper color, or getting some custom ones made and painting them. Keep the ideas comin guys.
