I like the overall looks. Good work on painting the grill surround! And I love the "riveted on look" !!!! But maybe paint everything behind it flat black so you cant see it . Looks pretty transparent. You have good taste

Another trick is grab so black screen material. Like for your screen door and mount that behind it to hide the parts and it won't affect the airflow to the rad

Thank you sir. Everything back there is black already, but I wish I could do something with that stupid coolant hose running across there so I could put some lights in there.

What steering stabilizer setup are you running? How's the lift kit so far?

It's rough country's dual 2.2 series.

Lift is great. No issues at all aside from the fabtech rear springs squeaking some.
Like I said before, I do 5-10 rough country kits a week and have ZERO issues with them.

I think it needs a Ford emblem. Looks great though

it sure will affect airflow, it will also raise the head temp in the ac system. we see highly different coolant temps with our race cars with different sized screen over the rad openings and that is with screen openings meant to keep out small rocks and low flying birds not anything nearly as small as screen door mesh.
