new grille!

so today i put on an oem harley grille. ive been eyeing this for a while and finally picked it up. im really digging the black grille on the white truck, what do you guys think? my next move to complete the front is either color match the headlights or do them "harley" style in black. let me know what you think would look better but right now im stoked with the way it sits

All the above just to haul the 900hp street mustang

I think that if you plan on keeping the black grille then go for the Harley lights. Otherwise if your going to colormatch the headlights go all white. Just my opinion. Truck looks great.

Id color match the grille white. Theres too much chrome going on for the black grille IMO. If you painted the lower bumper black and got HD headlights that would look good also but i think the color matched grille would look the best.

I actually like it with the black grille. color matching it would look good too. but black accents looks amazing on white trucks

if you think there is too much chrome now you should have seen it before. i had the factory chrome grille (see sig picture). i agree i think harley lights would look the best.

i am also a huge fan of white vehicles with black accent pieces. my with mustang has black pillars with a black roof. my white is350 has a black grille, blck emblems and smoked lights. the 350 has a black grille, all smoked lights and the factory black handles. i guess the black headlights will just finish it off

Awesome truck , I think if you keep the black grille you will need to run the Harley headlights to pull it together . Plus the Harley lights will look good with all of the other blacked out lights . I like how you left out the center support on the step bars , I thought about doing that too but was concerned about them flexing too much . Very nice ride .

thanks! i did it myself after i did my icon lift because the rear leafs ran right where the exhaust exited. basically just chopped up the mbrp 5" kit and got rid of the muffler. sounds wicked and you dont see too many others with it

I have the same grille and I have harley headlights and it looks good.

Did you get someone to paint your mirrors or did you order a cover or something? I'm wanting to do that to my truck
