Default some dress to go with the new paint

After painting the truck, the cracked plastic grille was just too ugly. I replaced the plastic with a stainless louvered grille ... and while I was at it, I put on a stainless bug shield. The company was Raneys in Ocala FL. They were priced lower than many others and the parts seem to be well built. Definitely sturdy!

Default New grill

The new grill is so shiny that the trees in the background reflection made me think that you still has the old dinged up grill in there!

Nice job! Was is expensive?

@ blizz - thanks for the props. I think I can quit dressing it now. ...... we will see.

@ 90 - $325 for the grille and another buck for the bug shield. That was the same price for the factory grille (plastic) check them out I talked to Taylor, and he was pretty helpful. Raney's Truck Parts - Chrome Semi Truck Parts & Accessories

Dear Santa,
I've been a real good boy this year, so could you please bring me a shiny chrome bumper for my truck so it matches the grill.

thanks your buddy,
Doc

ps I painted my truck to match your sled if that helps me get my bumper!??
