To billet, or not to billet?

I've been looking at some pics with the billet grilles, and I've been wondering once again how it would look on mine, so I did a PS of it from another member's truck. The first pic is how my truck currently looks, with a mesh grille that I made back in March 2004. The second is a Photochop of a 4 piece billet grille that I can buy off of ebay.

Winks your truck looks good how it is, the billet would look cool too. If you don't billet I would add the mess in the bottom too, that look good.

I like the mesh better than the billet. I thought I would like the billet better until I saw the pics. Definitely get the mesh for the bottom.

Wow, I didn't realize so many people liked the mesh. If you like the mesh, please check out this thread if you've got the time. https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ad.php?t=16924

I like the mesh. Just add the mesh to the valence, and I love how you put the mesh near the fogs. I think mesh looks more sporty.
