I would need to see one on a truck. I personally like the grille I have with the bling pkg, but I would like to see some pics of this installed.
I liked this grille a lot at first. Even though I've never been a real fan of lots of chrome.
I keep seeing trucks with black grilles though and it reminds me that deep down I really just want to murder out the truck with black everything. I think a black grille would do a lot to make my truck look more agressive.
I found two manufactures the produce the grills. They are fiberglass race bodies for baja and off road racing. The first has a full bolt on kits for F-150s and Rangers but do sell the grill seperate, especially if you are not putting it on newer F-150, like my 1996 F-250! The second doesn't have a good picture but it's coming.
1: Ford Raptor Fiberglass for 2004 and newer F-150 the grill is not 100% identical but for $300.
Speaking on the original post, the grille looks too much like a modified Lariat grille and the only "real" resemblance to the Raptor grille is the stretched Ford letters. An aspect of the Raptor grille that appeals to me is how subtle it looks in the mostly "brick" style screen it is inlaid with; the prototype aftermarket is over a (mostly) solid back, which in itself due to how large the solid area is will appear to reduce or interrupt airflow to the radiator significantly.
i hear you, but for those looking for the "look-a-like" its close enough. i dont like how solid it is around the letters. i would possibly remove some material behind the letters. i dont like the rear fenders either.
