keep it off. I had this same delema also. I thought it looked bare in the front w/out it at first but the more i looked at it off the better it looked. I only put it back on when I'm going on long trips

My dad's got hit by a chunk of ice and smashed it, so now it's no good. And it looks even uglier with a big crack and chunk missing out of it.

You're either colour blind or confused me with 99MazdaB4000 (Steve). Maybe you thought it was white because half the pics of it are covered in snow?

That stuff is really good.

However, the worst possible thing you can ever put on the front of a vehicle is those god awful LeBras.

Personally I think it looks good on a truck. I've had one on every truck and will continue too. Plus it's fun watching bugs hit it and fly over the cab.

Yes, yes they do. They rub on your hood and rub the paint off. That's why mine is STILL on.

It does look good though. I say keep it.

I voted with out, but I also vote upgrading to a sport grille like Cooke15's, as they are the sexiest grilles, and will definitely break up the front end a bit.
