New Ride...

I've asked some questions and have done a lot of reading and wanted to say thank you to this site and members in general. My wife and I brought my new truck home, an 06 F350. I was a wreck the entire time I was going over it, and I had a page and a half checklist of things to verify that I would have never known about. There are a couple things I need to take care of - like the factory tow hooks are gone. The radio seems to be a replacement, factory AM/FM, so the steering wheel radio controls do not work at the moment. Who knows what I missed, but all in all it's in good shape, and I'm happy as could be. I've got a small dealer warranty, so I'm going to drive every mile of it. Thanks guys!

-Oh yeah, what's the deal with the grille? How come it doesn't have the two vertical and horizontal crossmembers like most of them do? Was this aftermarket or something?
