It is possible but will require some skill to cut, bond, sand, and paint the new one if you use a donor grille; you could always fiberglass it..


off topic: are those 14" rims?

I'll have to check the condition of the one I have sitting in the garage, took it off as soon as I got the truck, might let you have it minus shipping..

This isn't good... its giving me ideas.

I agree with everybody else, it does look much better with the three horizontal bars.
