billet grill question

I want a full billet grill on my 2000 ranger but i have the grill with the stupid bar going across the middle, xlt thing i guess?, but i was wondering if there was a direct grill swap available so that i can put a full billet in there?

Here's kind of a close up, you can hardly tell because of how far the billet goes into the grille, which is good.

I don't remember..i'll let him chime in. He's a local buddy of mine who's also a member. There's 4x4 shells i've seen done up just like this too, but has the vertical bars still attached. RPS might has a how-to on the 2wd shell mod too, but idk.

ok here's what I did, I cut the center section out and I didn't cut it out enough so I kept taking a little off at a time. Both sides (left and right) have about maybe a 3/8" gap because the grille doesn't go all the way up to the shell.
