Looking to get a Harley Davidson Grill

Title says it all, I'm looking at putting on HD lights and a HD grill. I've been looking around, and have been having issues finding a site to order off of. I've been looking on EBay for the lights.

My question is, anyone got a nice site to order these two items off of with a reasonable price?

Thanks in advance.

TClev,

Sorry for the late response, I didn't see that you had posted on here. I ended up being able to order both of these off of Amazon and they worked great! The lights were from Eagle Eyes, and the grill was from headlights depot I can give you some links. The grill definitely isn't as sturdy as the OEM one that came off my truck, but I was kind of expecting that since the harley grill isn't from ford. They came out looking sharp tho!

Here are the links:

This is where I ordered my last Harley grille from too. Much better quality than OEM, in my opinion. Love partsgeek.

I take it the Harley grilles on partsgeek are not OEM.. who is the manufacturer? And what makes them better than the OEM Harley grilles?

Can't remember who the manufacturer is, but you are correct - they are not OEM. The OEM Harley grilles are very thin plastic that warp up at the top (where the 4 screws hold it in place). The one that I bought from partsgeek was thick plastic and just felt a lot sturdier.

Thanks for the info and the pics. No issues with the fit and finish?

Mine looks like that too. When I see these threads about aftermarket Harley headlights or 08+ mirrors I'm always concerned about the quality compared to OEM until I have seen a substantial amount of feedback. The grill is different though. The factory grill is very disappointing for a truck that stickered at over $50k new. It would be hard for an aftermarket grill to be worse. I've searched over the years for a billet grill that replicated the stock appearance with no success. Glad to see there is a decent alternative.
