I would have liked to put one of those on but I found this one and its an original Ford part and has never been installed. Brand new and it was only $75.00.

Half of new plus shipping & handeling should be very fair. Its in very good shape I just dont like them at all.
$75.00+ S&H.

When it comes to appearance mods ......nothing can please everyone.
My only "bling" on my 07 is a set of polished tire stem caps. I have even been contemplating removing the FX4 stickers.
To those that like the appearance mods "go for it!":nod:
(well , except for those that post a zillion dodge rams all over their dodge)
(Wish they wouldnt do that..makes it hard to concentrate on driving when I am holding back my laughter).:hehe:

Cool

I dont like the billet ones either. You should beable to take that stock one you have and do the brake fluid trick and get the paint off and make it all chrome. Mine was like that. Stock grill but all chrome and it looked awesome. Here is my grill.

Yeah, that does look better! I think an '05 would look even sweeter on there, but thats just me. If I didnt have a huge ranch hand replacement, I would do it also.

Well

Its like the trick for turning your emblems on the fenders and doors chrome. All the black on them is just paint over a chrome plastic emblem. So is the grill. The entire grill is like the outer edge but they just paint the middle gray. Now, I didnt do my grill someone else did, but they say that using brake fluid and a rag you can lift the paint off the chrome plastic underneath and then it will be all chrome. Theres a writeup about the emblems on here somewhere.
