In that picture I hadnt riveted it all together yet, thats why it looks like there are gaps. I can snap a much better picture tomorrow after I detail the truck. Also need to put a different bug deflector on there, looking for sleeker alternatives.

It is Carriage Works 40242. Do a google search! I got mine for about 130 bucks with free shipping. Basically you take your stock grill and cut/grind everything off until you have a thin outer shell left, then a series of brackets, rivets, screws hold it all together. My only complaint is that the center mounting point for the grille is removed, thus leaving the grille free to flap around. CW is supposed to be getting back with me regarding this issue.

Yes, powdercoated latch extension included with hardware; you just drill two holes in the factory latch.
