I actually think that one is better than the t-Rex grills. Mine only has two screws holding it on. That one has 8. If it's formed as well and fills the space it looks like a great deal!

One of the ebay ads I looked at mentioned that I would have to use a hack saw and a drill to remove the old grille and put on the new one... Is this true or is it a straight bolt on? I want to buy the one that was mentioned above for trucks w/tow hooks but I DO NOT want to hack saw ANYTHING on my truck.

Also, are these chrome?

There are a couple of different grill styles. The overlay just bolts onto the factory grill. The bumper inserts are all overlay style. Then there are the insert and replacement styles, which both require modification/removal of the factory grill.

Those are not chrome, but are polished aluminum with a black powdercoat back

E.L.D.: It is formed and fits like a glove. I was truly amazed with what I gotten for $39. I honestly thought after ordering, that I had just thrown $39 in the trash and I would have to buy the T-Rex anyway until I recieved the package in the mail. WOW!

Do they make one for the lower grille that snaps right on and is chrome? I plan on getting chrome inserts in my main grille so I want that one to match. Also, I have the tow hooks in the front..

That's awesome! I saw these on eBay when I ordered mine. I ended up going thru T-Rex directly. I wanted to be different and get mine in black rather than getting the black honeycomb. Instead of powdercoating them after I got them I called and had them pull mine off the line before the polished the front. Came out great!

All of the bumper grills I have seen are overlays. They screw into the plastic piece. The grills are overlay/inserts. They fit the honeycomb and need cutting on the bar style grills. At least that's hoe the t-Rex grills are

Anybody thought of putting the honeycomb on the bottom to match the top grille? Been thinking of doing it on my R/T but was wondering if somebody else had done it yet?
