ok guys, I like the chrome grill I have on my L.L edition, but I am leaning towards doing a facelift on the front.. will be purchasing front and rear Ironcross bumpers ( will be painted gold to match trim drilled to fit parking sensors ) I am also interested in either color matching my current grill from chrome to white, or keeping my original grill un-touched and buying another used grill and painting that white and installing a Status Grill... pics below, also if anyone has modified/paint matched or just kept it original post up pictures!!!! so I can get some ideas brewing!!!!:D
Current look stock and lonely :( : Grille Motor vehicle Automotive exterior Vehicle Bumper

purchasing these soon

Like that all-black one in the middle/left picture. Not a fan of someone's logo lettering.

Keep thinking some support in the middle, like a variation of stock, would help with bug or bird impacts. Of course if something big really hit the grill it's gonna go into the radiators.

This is my truck with a Hemi and T-Rex Torch grill Land vehicle Vehicle Car Motor vehicle Tire

Now I have an Eco Deisel and I'm told I can't use this grill because of the active shutters. Does anyone have some input as to wether I can put this grill on my Deisel ?

That looks sick!

I've never used plasti dip.

Is there a specific kind you would recommend, or any tips? How many coats?

Thank you

I decided my religious days are over, so I got rid of the cross and goats head up front.

Not a fan of the after market " big gaping hole" look. I would customize an OEM grill. Kelly's grilles look really nice.
I would be doing something along those lines.

Also Pasti Dip is a good option. It takes 1/2 dozen light coats but it works well.

Good luck with your search. Let us see it when it's done.

I would get whatever offers the most fresh air into the cac and radiator. A couple of the pics are of bumpers with a cutout in the middle. This would be perfect for the GDE CAC relocation kit :cool:

While certainly not a scientific opinion, i believe i do see a 5-10F drop in oil temps with the new grill. Will see towing the boat in warmer weather.

That looks really bad!

I've never used plasti dip before.

Is there a particular type you would recommend, or do you have any suggestions? How many coats are there?

Thank you very much
