Carriage Works Grille installed!

Just finished installing my grille this morning. 6 piece upper and lower bumper grille. Check out my gallery for the pics, i will be added a few more pics soon of others mods and further away from the truck. Also took a few pics of the grille parts and needed tools for install. Let me know what you guys think and if you have any questions don't hesitate! Install was very simple!!

Mike

thanks mastermix! And thanks for all your help/advice on the whole thing... i'm loving the 6piece and glad i went with it over the one piece replacement.

truck looks good man, glad to see you got the new pics up. exhaust looks sweet.... bet its not some good pep with that and the airraid. On a side not, those are not the sylvania blinkers right? They are the ones like the f150store sells?

Thanks, glad to be helpful. Those bulbs are the ones Moss(aka f150store) sells.

The sound of the Borla balances the Airaid very nicely, and the truck is very responsive. Next thing to get on is the leveling kit.

BTW as another side note, what brand of window vents are you using? I bought a set of WeatherTechs but I don't like the clip arrangement to hold them up. I like the cleaner look of the ones that go into the window channel but may have to go with ones that stick on.

AVS(auto ventshade) I have the stick on, not in-channel. Cheapest place was advance auto parts, paid $29.99, no problems with them.

grille

shadowed....I was wanting the billet grill but wasn't for sure if you could put it under the black nostril grill. Whatever you used is the look i'm going for. Who makes it and where can I get the set? Do you have to take out the honeycomb grill to install the billet pieces? Can you put a full billet grill under the nostril grill or do you have to install the pieces like you did. It looks great anyway.

Its carriage works grille, 6 piece polished kit as well as bumper grille. No removal of the honeycomb, thats used to hold the grille on with nuts/bolts. (check my gallery for image of backside of grille) You can put a full billet grille, from what i understand with the black nostril we have, you have to remove that nostril, and also drill a couple holes behind the grille?? so i've read. Also, if you want that grille its called a replacement grille.
