Help me choose a grille

OK folks-
I'm tired of the grille setup that I've been running for the past couple of years, so it's time to change it up a bit before show season arrives.

1) Chrome surround with stock honeycomb insert

2) Black surround with stock honeycomb insert

3) Chrome surround with black billet insert

4) Black surround with black billet insert

5) Chrome surround with black billet insert and blue oval

6) Black surround with black billet insert and blue oval


Tell me which look you like the best and why.
Keep in mind that theses are going on there too.

Thanks,
MikeR

4 or 6. You need a 06+ front emblem if you go with #6.

2 and 4 are my favourites... I think 4 would be better though once the lights are on there.

If the billet didn't have such a gap between the bars it would look good with a larger emblem. If you get the other style with the bars closer together it would look sweet.

Voted for stock, color matched surround

I vote for the chrome surround with the black billet. In my opinion the chrome surround matches the XLT bumper, which draws attention to the front of the truck and the black billet adds a subtle touch. I think the XLT bumper would look odd being the only chrome on the front. That is just my opinion though, do what you think is best.

Man im totally different from everyone else but I like 1 and 3, or even do number 3 with a billet grill vs black billet.

To me the black surround just doesnt flow well. I like it being broke up with the chrome surround.

I like 2 and then 6. I don't really care for the plain billet without any emblem. Though I do like honeycomb without the emblem.

I like #2 becaue the honey comb hides a lot of the junk you can see with the billet.
