2011 superduty grille/ front end

What do you 6.0's think of the new front end? I swear I still like my 06 front end more than the 08-09's, and the 2011 doesn't do it for me either. I swear they keep getting bigger. What is with the huge chrome pieces? Am I the only one who thinks the older models look better? I remember hearing they made the grilles higher because of laws and what not, but damn... Fugly

The body and lines are nice though, I dig the emblems.

I think that the '05 - '07 grill is the best looking one. I dont mind the '08 - '10 grills but the new one I cant stand at all. Did ya notice that they went back to a drop top bumper to fit around the grill!

I still think that my 97 has the best front end.
I like how its modest yet tough looking.

Don't like the grille at all. Think we could do the 05 conversion

That's an easy fix though. Just put an aftermarket grill.

I posted this somewhere else, but this is an alternative to all the chrome. I think it looks 20 times better, but at the same time it reminds me of a Toyota Tundra.
