grill mod for my 93

I want a custom grill for my 93, but there are like 2 choices unless you make your own. what I want is this grill off of the Cervini's truck. If you zoom in on the grill itself you car see that it looks like it has a honeycomb grill. Anybody got any idea how i could mod my grill to look like this?

Bwad on another site just got done with his....



It looks killer, the only thing I don't like about it is that the grille is in front of the shell

Looks good but I don't want the grill on the outside of the shell. I'm guessing that a grill from a newer ranger was used for the center. When I get ready to do this, that is what I will use.

X2. It would look great if he modded it to run straight across and had it rechromed.

Sorry, but I don't think it would look good at all if it was straight across. And I have plenty of other people tell me it looks good so 2 peoples opinions aren't gonna make me change my mind.

As for the grill, part of the reason I put the honeycomb on the outside is because there are very little ways to attach it in there if it were on the inside. Also, there is a substantial amount of work and skill that is needed to complete this. Don't start unless you're determined as hell to finish it because you will easily get discouraged.

Other people's opinion isn't going to change mine. The gap between the bumper and the grille doesn't look good.

If you weren't retarded, you'd know the bumper isn't what you'd have to change. A simple molding of two different gen grilles would fill the gap if you know how to work with fiberglass.

And it doesn't "disgust" me. I'm just saying it looks out of place because the rest of the truck looks good

Way mature how you guys stoop to insults because someone isn't taking your advice. The supporting badge won't gain my respect for you guys. My truck is fine just the way it is.

Also, it's my DD so I cannot drive it either without a bumper or without a header panel. But yeah, I'm still retarded. My bad guys, my bad.

I don't see why everyone is getting butt hurt. This is an online forum, if you post pics people comment on them. Not everyone likes everything just take it with a grain of salt, no need to stir the pot more.

I'm staying as calm as I ever was. But when someone tells you your truck looks like **** because of one little thing, that's just being petty.

My truck has dents too... and I'm sure everyone's has some sort of flaw. But there's no need to nitpick and find little things wrong with them.

Yeah, every post makes you seem so calm. You're a defensive little baby who's crying because your rattle was stolen and can't take criticism when its not in your favor. I think you belong back on FF where everyone says "i like it" regardless of how shitty something is. Even Downey's truck would be praised over there.

K. I don't know who Downey is so that joke is useless to me.

Also, yeah, staying calm is not losing my head and calling you names. Which I have done.

Now I can see why you're not on f r f because if you were a dick like this over there people wouldn't have your back but all of your little friends defend you over here, don't they?

And yeah man, I was totally crying my eyes out when I typed this.

Screw the gap. You have updated the look of your truck with a 2003 bumper/valance. Have you ever considered putting more of that mesh you have in your grill into the valance opening? Your truck is clean as hell, I like it.

I've considered it, but haven't decided yet. I think I might not do anything with it. I recently got a ticket for not having a front plate so that's probably gonna go there. Sad, I know, but I don't need any more tickets.

But thank you for the compliment, and for not being an arrogant *******. :)

No, see, Morgan actually likes my truck.

There you go again trying to get your "groupies" to help you win your battles. Do it yourself. Don't go crying to mommy either.
