Sweet, where did you score the grill? Get the 04/05 shell from a wrecker?

I picked the whole thing up off Kijiji... it was a silver shell with a regular billet grille. I just painted everything black. It shouldn't be too hard to get a shell from a wrecker, or just buy the whole thing online.

I bought my truck with an aftermarket grill already installed. It looks identical to the pic posted by FULLSCALE. I was wondering what I would need to buy to put it back to stock for a 2005? It looks like the stock grill had to be cut out of the original shell. Do I need to buy the entire shell? Where is the best place to buy from and are there places to avoid Here is a pic of my truck.

You should just be able to get the insert and clip it back in... if that's an '05 shell it should have been two pieces. Your best bet is probably to ask on here if someone wants to trade or post a trade up on Kijiji.
