Exclamation Studded Billet Grille question

Watsup everybody I have a couple questions about the Studded grilles.
1. I was wondering what the main difference is between the smittybilt studded mesh grille ~$400 and the Other competing brands like the RBP studded mesh grille~$1,000.00. There is a major price difference between the two and i was wondering why.

2. If anyone has a smittybilt studded mesh grille. Is it easy to install and how does it look?

THanks for taking the time to answer my questions

It is purly a name difference. Just like Harley Davidson... Due to the name being on it it automatically means 100 dollars more. Honestly no real difference in quality. RBP just gets the dumb teenagers who spend mommy and daddies money. I know one guy who just turned 20 has an f250 where I used to live ended up spending over 6 grand on things from badges/grille insert/ and exhaust... Way to overly priced.

Depends if you are just talking about the grille inserts or the actual entire grille where you have to cut out the cross. I just put a T-rex full upper and lower valence grille insert in myself where I had to cut the cross out. Wasn't bad just very time consuming, and not to mention plastic SUCKS to work with. Sanding it etc is just a horrible pain. Very dirty as well.
