you can get the chrome one...or you can switch to the 04-05 (i think some 06+ too) 2 piece grill and get some billet style grilles. there are also some inserts for the gaps in your grille...

hmm...well you can get the grille surround from the two piece and get it painted yellow or grey with a billet grill for the center in black or silver...or get it powdercoated another color...

What years came with the 2 piece grille? I'd like to pick one up and get a black billet grille.

Maybe paint the surround black too...

And black headlights...? I digress lol

the 2 piece grilles were on 04-05, and I think they brought them back on the Sport models in 07 i want to say

EDIT: Any pics of your truck's grille, I see you have an 07 Sport...

Redranger8888 has a silver mesh installed behind his grille. I think if you painted it black it might add something. I have thought about doing it before with the mesh and black. Here is his cardomain page:

If not that maybe the STX grille?

Do oyu mean to paint your current one gray??

And with your valance being black I think the STX/Sport grille would look good in black with a yellow surround

My grille is one peice. I can post pics but just imagine foxxys in red.

Foxxy I've seen a couple of the dark grey surrounds on ebay. They looked like the unpainted xl style ones, but close to the color you've got on the bottom. I think you should have it grey on the surround and billet inside, like the stx kind of.

I just pulled the chrome H-Bar off my XLT and replaced it with the FX4 grille (same one as Foxxy's) in Red Fire, my truck color. If anyone would like to buy the chrome H-Bar let me know, make an offer. New they are $261 from Ford and best internet from a Ford dealer in Las Vega is $180. I will sell for much less than that.

Thanks

George

^^^JWall might be interested in the chrome one

Foxxy this is the STX grille, and then the surround area you could get painted yellow, if i remember ill try a photoshop with the gray surround and yellow surround with the STX if you want
