Decent looking grill for 11-12 SD under $1k??

Anybody found a decent looking replacement grill for the 11-12 super duty's? I am very close to pulling the trigger on a 12 but hate the new grill. Found a few i like, but they are all $800+!!! I like the royalty core grills, but man they sure are proud of them.

Will a 08-10 grill fit the new trucks?? Please post pictures!! Thanks!!

Thanks guys, the M1 isn't bad, wish it was stainless steel though. I suppose one could powdercoat it to match the truck? Never been a huge fan of the "blacked out" look.

The M1 is made of painted 303 stainless steel. You could use paint stripper.

I had one of those carriage works on my chev for 5 years and still on it when i sold the truck... Good sturdy piece, and kept road debris and bugs from crushing my radiator fins.
I think Ill try the M1 this time though. Billet fin grills are kinda out of style now.

Look at the T-Rex grilles. They are decently priced and a few people on here have used them.
