Last minute check - Please read

Hi there guys

I'm planning on getting THIS, today in the evening if possible.
I've searched and went through the whole auction description, and I think it's the right one, but just want to check with the more savvy, grille-wise, before I send the money.

I have an 04 Edge ext cab.

If you have any other recommendations or pros/cons on this one, just go ahead and shoot.

thanks in advance.

Is that the one you're rocking right now ?

You should keep the grille surround, and trim the honeycomb part ?

I have the 02 XLT and just finished installing the billitt grill. Getting the grill insert out was a bit of a chore, but I did it and only broke one of the 20 or so plastic tabs. The new grill is fastened to the black plastic panel in front of the metalwork then the grill shell reattaches over it. Fairly sturdy when you get it all back together. Looks good too. Only lament is that I didn't install the Ford blue oval emblem on the grill before putting it together. That actually makes it look even better. Now I have to take it all off again if I want to do this. (wonder if marine silicone sealant/cement might hold it on?)
