It just the way the camera takes the picture sometimes.

Grille's been on since 2006 so its very durable and lasting through the Az Elements. I would love to have the billet big mouth grilles but the price back then was around 600-700.

Dude your truck is sick. I think I'm gunna pick up the abs one. 2006 and still going strong, can't beat that. And it's way less than the billet. Is the bumper insert an actual billet? And what drop do you have?

Thanks. Got a lot of inspiration from other members here and other forums. I think we both agree though that black is a PIA to maintain LOL.

You cant really go wrong with ABS if billet is not in your budget. A lot of folks here have them too. Black version seems to be more popular it seems though which is cool.

The bumper insert i got on good ole ebay too. Seller name is grille4u and looks like he is still has his ebay store.

Here is a link
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Dodge...Q5fAccessories


The drop is a McG 4/6 Kit (2" spindles and coils up front with flip kit and c notch at the rear)

What makes you want to try out the big mouth grille vs your current and other styles out there?

Well I like the way the sport grills are but it's factory built. And the 4 piece inserts follow those lines too. I want mine to look more custom. And for a truck that's not lifted I don't think the aggressive rbp grilles match the styling. Although with wheels like yours with the chrome bolts it would probably look cool as hell. Originally I wanted a vertical big mouth but the ones I see out there the bars are huge and look funny.

I got a mcGs 2/4 coming to me. But I'm still rolling the 20" stockers.
