ISO Black mesh grille 2011 F-250

Anyone have any ideas, I want a black mesh grille for my 2011 F-250 but I can't afford 800-1200 bucks for a (RBP, FUEL type grille). I have no idea on earth why these companies charge so much for these grille's, has anyone found any that are similar but a little more reasonably priced?

Check out the seller on ebay called E-auto grilles. I bought one and the quality is decent. Got a black billet grille and surround for $170 dollars. Bolted on in about 30 minutes.

Picture's would be great! I've seen those grilles and wondered about them.

Pic of the grille on my 6.4, pretty sure they had a couple for the 6.7 that look similar to mine.

Thanks verifine. They look like nice grilles at a decent price. If I get one I will post pics and do a review. I'm thinking the 5mm riveted grille with shell. ($384)

Just an update.

I ordered the e auto grille. It is a decent quality-looking grille, but I did have some fitment issues. The way they secure the locking tabs on the bottom of the grille, prevented it from going in and locking. I had to re-do a few things to get it to fit. The mesh and surround is actually pretty heavy, and I think it will hold up really well. The chrome on the shell seems like it will probably end up flaking off over time, but who knows it may hold up.... I will probably end up using it as a template for when I build my own grille.

Overall I would give it 3 stars out of 5.

I'll try to get some pics up soon.
