Black powder coated Phantom grille + LED halo headlights and foglights install

As featured on homepage.

I got to install this grille while i had the bumper off from installing my LED halos in the headlights and fog lights. I also painted the fog light bezels to give them a little more contrast now that the grille is solid black. What do you guys think? I love it. It is super sturdy, i know there have been other member who had bent ends but this one has a vertical bar welded about an inch from the ends and nothing was bent nor did it seem that it could be, unless it was thrown really hard at something.

The fog light halos from AAC. Those were pretty easy to install, the ones for the headlights were pretty tough. They are $100. I posted my install of both headlight and fog light LED halos on a different thread.

I like it.

The rocks will too. I had a black billet grill on my truck and it looked bad after 6 months.

Take some pictures outside when you get a chance?

As far as i know its street legal, i bought them powdercoated and the company is T-REX billet. I think i paid $535 for both upper and lower grilles.

You dont, it bolts on over the existing grille and uses it for support.
