RBP Grille and emblems...

Ok guys, so I got my new 20" black Rockstars on my truck, and now I need to start blacking out everything that is chrome. I am really considering getting the RBP black RX grille (I know it is expensive) Does anybody have one on an 05-07?? Pics??? I know you have to cut out the inner parts of the factory grille in order to make it work, but for those who have done it, is it easy to do?? I am also thinking of getting the black RBP badges to go along with the grille and the whole black theme. Anybody have those? I am assuming like every other truck I have owned that the F250 badges are just stuck on? The last thing then on my list is to somehow get rid of my chrome front and rear bumpers. Anybody seen or does anybody have plastic painted bumper covers??? Thanks alot for the time guys...

Come on guys, somebody on here must have the RBP grille on an 05 truck... I just realized that you still have to use the original grille frame to use the RBP insert... Right now I have an all chrome grille, I stopped at a body shop to see if they could paint the chrome the same silver as my truck, and then I could still use the black RBP grille... The body shop told me in a year it would peel and look like sh**... Does ANYBODY have any ideas on how I could get the grille frame to be silver?? Do they sell plastic paintable grilles??? I need some input guys...

Here's some pics of what I did to my grill and bumpers. I tossed around the herculiner idea but then ened up just line xing all of them. I'm very happy with it and have had it for over a year. Still as shiny as the day I got it done. Just make sure to get the UV protection.









Still plan on blacking out the rest of the emblems and tail lights and turn signals. And I plan on some n-fab step or amp research. And Harley lights of course. Not a big fan of chrome. Even did the exhaust tip.

I have the grille on my chevy, and I am an RBP dealer.... I know of a few fords that have it and no its not hard to do... just take your time and it will come out great... the instructions are very easy to follow


as for the grille being body color you have a few routes to go, you can get the harley grille, or they did offer a body color grille package but I am not sure which package it was.... or you can go the cheap and easy route and get the XL model black grille and have it painted and then add the RBP grille to it...
