Grill insert

Has anyone seen a grill insert for the intercooler area that matches the Lariet grill?

I'm new to the pickup experience. We had an SUV, however it was time to replace it.

I've always owned higher end sedans and sports cars (G35, Vette, etc). However, I needed a replacement vehicle to pull our boat. I also wanted a vehicle I could drive to the office.

I test drove a GMC pickup, Toyota and the Ford F150. The Ford 150 won hands down - more room, better styling and I liked the EcoBoost motor.

I settled on a loaded 2012 FX4. The truck handles very well, the interior is large enough for 4 to 5 adults, the electronics are excellent, the towing capacity is more than adequate, the air cooled seats rock and the motor has excellent power with above average fuel economy. Also, Ford didn't take any government bailout money.

Overall, great product - great experience.

Paul
