Grill Opinions?

Hey guys, I have an 08 F350 Dually with the sport package (color matched bumpers and handles) and have one of the many Ford grills with the chrome flaking off. I am debating on replacing it with a new chrome one or putting on a red FX4 grill. I am not sure if the red grill would look good with the red bumper or if it would be too much red. I have seen the color matched grills on the fx4 trucks but they have the grey two tone bumpers. What do you guys think?

Mike

Yea if your truck is solid red I wouldnt put a red grill on it. Unless it was like the ones that are red surround and black on the inside styled like the grill from the chrome packaged ones.

You should post up some pics of your current setup. It will help to stimulate our imagination. The color matched FX4 grilles look sweet on pretty much every truck I've seen.

Cool FX4 Ranger Grille

I can't find a shot of a Super Duty done that way but on my old 2007 Ranger Sport, I installed an FX4 Grille with the black center and all white front bumper - I though it looked pretty good but it's no where near as big as our SD's!
