What did you do with your billet?

I'm trying to find a lighted emblem... See what you can do for something like that! They're sweet looking!

Love the lights mounted behind the grill! I know that's not new, but still looks sharp!

Yeah, but after I wear down the tires I have, plan a 2/2 drop with 17" Aviator rims.. Not the best ps but you get the idea

I'm thinking of going with my old plan of making the first Ranger Lariat like I planned on the old GE like 4 years ago..

they will be for sale! the main grille part was not big enough and I am not forking over $60+ on ebay just to cut up my brand new grille! and without the main billet I though the bumper billet would have looked out of place..

not sure about a lighted emblem

Thanks for the comments! at first I wasnt sure if I would like it, but it looks like a grown up truck and not soo much like a teenager drives it!

I like that look actually! Keep it that height man and throw those rims on it! It'll look awesome!

What was the billet for? The 2wd xl/xlt grille? If it'll work in the honeycomb grille, I might be willing to take it off your hands lol...

I love the honeycomb though! Just lookin for something new for awhile, so I don't get bored

Yeah I was getting tired of the billet, it was my first mod to the truck 4 years ago!

Its too small for the honeycomb, you would have about an inch and half gap on top..

I like the honeycomb, hate that ford killed it for those big *** chrome bars..

here's the emblem.... not bad considering it sat in a drawer for about 2 years, lol. i ran it under the sink for a couple of seconds and it already shined up good. wax it and itll look brand new.

Better yet, ship it to him, take the middle part out, get rid of the blue in the emblem and paint it white, then put it back on! lol

Thanks! I think Texas might be the only state you really can get away with it and have it look right..
