Default New headlights and grille. Mixed feelings :/

So on a whim I decided to try some black headlight housings and a black grille. Love the lights, but on the fence about the grille.

I think it'll look better when I lift, and if I get the bumpers powder coated. But I think I'd rather have a black OEM grille off a black sport. Don't know where to begin lookin for one.
actually I found the black Oem grille. I don't know how I didn't the first time. http://www.1aauto.com/1A/Grilles/Dod...FRCf4AodIm8A5Q
Install of both was stupid easy. Let me know what you think. Talk me down off the ledge.

Ya not gonna lie with your set up right now I'm not a fan of that grille. The headlights look great though!

I'd say put the stock grille back on but take the bug deflector off it. You could even paint the billet inserts black if you want some more black on the front. I think that would look pretty sick.

Nothing wrong with the chrome grill in your first pic. I think it looks great.

Yeah, not digging the verticals at all.

I think a body colored sport grill would look good. I don't think a black grill will look right on a blue truck. JMO.

This grille looks good on a 2007 Ram though.

I've never been a fan of removing the "cross-hairs" from our trucks, it's part of what makes a Ram, a Ram!

That said, you have a VERY sharp truck and I'm looking forward to seeing the end result!
