Looks real good man, did you just use spray paint? I dont know if you have to drive on highway but i drive 100mi to work and i spray painted mine with spray paint and it didnt last long before it started to chip away, and thats with a bunch of coats. I redid it with plastic did in the summer and it still looks new today. Thought you might like to try that. Other then that your truck looks realy good buddy.

That looks great. The blac with the black studs go nicely. When I make my grille, I will do the black with black, same with my wheels.

No, its an inanimate object. Its not like they are saying something about me. Different strokes for different folks. I.E. I think lifted 2wd's than never see a trail are stupid, but some may find taking a $40k+ truck out and beating the hell out of it on a trail is stupid. I do what I like, others do what they like, doesn't mean that I think down on the person that has it.

PM me if you have an issue. RBP is overpriced crap. Nothing against hamster or anyone else that buys it

Cool...then you and I differ on how an "administrator" should speak to members about their parts.

Looks pretty badass in the snow like that. Good job on the install. I just did my Grillecraft and it was kind of a pain in the ass. Burned up a drill, put a drill bit into my finger, but a mesh grille looks so much better than the stock Toyota grilles.

Re: Installing RBP grill, need some help

Ive never been a fan of RBP based on the price. But that looks really good man. Especially with the blue oracles. Brings your truck together nicely man! Congrats.
