I need a new grille

I picked up a chrome grille and surround from a xlt i think. it wont match up to my powerdome like i think it should.... I like the style of the grille, it will be painted to match the truck, but i want it to fit the hood!! any input would be greatly appreciated...


if you dont already know, its a 2001 edge.

the hood hits it or its just close? i didnt think it looked that bad with the xlt style.

notch the hood and put an 07 grill on it.

hmm... i kinda like the 07 idea. the xlt surround just doesnt match up to the hood the way i would like it to.

Yeah they wanted like $240 unpainted at Ford. I'm sure someone on here might be able to hook you up for dealer cost, theres a couple guys that work for Ford on here that I've gotten parts from before.

www.tascafordparts.com

Just a dealership that sells parts for dirt cheap, I got one of my bumper brackets from them a couple months ago. The 746 is MSRP and the 492 is the cost you can get it at. They have everything, body parts and mechanical parts. Its a cool site. I couldn't find the STX grille on there though, you could look it up if you had a part number.
