few questions

Will an 05' ^ grille just bolt onto an 03? Or will an aftermarket grille look better? Do duel cat back magnaflow mufflers sound good on diesel's?

since you got an 03 i wouldnt put anything else on there but a straight pipe. you will LOVE it. and as far as grill goes, you will need to do a little trimming to make it work. and aftermarket overlay grill will be an easier cheaper way to go about it

You can get a custom cut 05+ grill that has been trimmed to fit 99-early03 trucks. its $325 on ebay. You can get the billet grill, but you have to cut up your stock grill, i dont personally think it looks very good... that 05+ one makes a big difference.

If you cut the grill yourself, you will have to zip-tie it on, if you get the one off ebay it will go on factoy hangers....i think thats what it says.

I have a 5" turbo back exhaust with a flow through muffler ad 4" down pipe from farmboy diesel-----about $400

cat back doess not sound much different than stock...and would not really help with flow. I would get that farmboy exhaust or get some Aussie cut stacks!!!
