mesh grill options?

Hey guys I have a black superduty and I am looking for a nice black mesh grill, are there any that you reccomend? Also has anyone bought the cheap 300$ ones off eBay? If so how did they workout?

I also have a black truck and I went with the trex mesh grill. It's great quality and has held up to all the elements so far. I have heard good things about the smittybuilt m1 grill as well.

do you guys mind posting up pics of your grills? also did you find you had to paint the frame/outside of the grill to match the paint or does the black looked decent enough?

As much as I hate ProComp/ Smitty bilt I've had great luck with the M1 grills. The price point is an added bonus.

I agree, Smittybilt M1 for the price, can't beat it.

your truck look so good!

I have a mesh grill in the box. It's a smittybilt M1 your truck makes me want to put the grill on. but this picture gives me second thoughts.



I would need to paint all the none black items behind the grill...Black( hose clamps,brkts,etc) but still am having trouble deciding. Also have been on the lookout for a used grill to cut up
instead of mine.
