Should I get a new grille?

Current:
Edge Hood with Stock XL Grille



The grille and hood do not line up on the corners of the grille, the grille sticks out a little on the sides near the headlights and the hood over extends a tad over the grille near the same corners.. it's a very minor detail few see but do you think it is worth it to buy an edge/4x4 grille?

If I do I'm thinking on leaving the grille stock and take out the bumper billet..

Your truck looks really good with billet, so I would get the 4x4 grille surround and the billet grill insert. The whole lining up of the grille surround and the edge hood would bother me too.

I would get an Edge grill surround and another billet grill or a street scene grill. Like you said it's a minor detail that most wouldn't notice, but it would drive me crazy to no end.

well, it doesnt match up perfectly. That would bug the crap outta me! I say get the proper grill for the hood you have, whatever that may be.

Once thats all sorted out, keep the billet with the driving lights behind it, I think thats sweet.
