I love your truck. You gonna get the grill shell painted to match the rest of the truck. I don't really like it black.

looks awesome, but you need to tie in more black. maybe the headlight mod or something once you get rid of those cataracts

I liked the chrome on the grill better, but I love your truck all around.
I personally would have done away with the chrome bumper before i did away with the chrome grill.

kinda cant. even with the newer style mazda headlights (the ones i want/need to run hid's) are still a single housing....so no spot to really spray black....

like 1/4" thick....i really cant see myself bending it though. before i covered it all back up, i was screwin around trying to get iit to budge, but nothhing. otherwise, i woulda sandwiched it like i had planned, but i didnt feel the need to. 3/4" seems like overkill...

ive been unsure cuz i havnt seen a mazda with one i look at some rangers like the ones with the honeycomb grills and they look like it would work and then i look at others with the h-bar grills and they look like they wont

are there changes to the p-dome hoods on different years?

i cant wait to see it on your truck man

Yea it was overkill lol I'll admit that. but I went from about 1/8th lol. Over kill is the name of the game with me, plus I got it for free, and with the plasma it was easy to cut out
