Well i really want to get a color match grille because im going for the red/black look and want to ditch the chrome. Ill be getting the bumpers line-xed black in the early summer time i think, but figured id buy a color match grille. Think it would look good with the chrome bumpers for now?

I did a real quick color matching job on the computer, ill be getting the 2010 grille though.

Here it is with just the grille in red and chrome bumpers:


And this is what it will look like with the grille and bumpers done:


Like dis-like? Any imput is some imput. Haha :rolleyes: As always feel free to post pics if you got this done.

I see where you are going with this, but unless you go with black wheels it does not look good to me. But if you do get black wheels, it might be too much. I would leave it the way it is now. Just my .02

I say Hellz Yeah! I'm a big fan of the color-matched grill. Unfortunately, they don't sell one for the Pyrite Mica, so I may end up taking mine to a paint-shop this summer. I'm not so sure about the black line-x bumpers... but as for the grill - definitely. Good luck!

IMO if you are going to color match the grill, I would color match the bumpers too. I am not a fan of the black bumpers on our color truck. I would either leave it as is or go with complete color match, bumpers, grille surround, then black out the inside of the grill and get some black wheels. JMO. Everyone has to make their own decisions about what looks good.

Color matched grille would look great. I'm not a big fan of LineX, and I can't fathom in my mind how it would even remotely begin to look attractive over your bumpers. That's just me...

I have a red crewmax with the color matched grill and chrome bumpers and it looks fine. I to am going to black bumpers and wheels in the next couple months. you'll be very happy with the color matched grill it really changes the look of the truck.

Here's a pic of my '07 - I painted the grill myself to color-match, and also painted the lower grill-insert as well. Turned out pretty good. I used a color-matched rattle-can, and it turned out fine. I know that Silver is a different animal than red, but you get the idea...

Did the pic not show up? (Is that what your "emoticon" means..?) I'm at work, and sometimes our stupid web-filters don't allow pics to show. I'll try again when I get home --- that pic is in my main-photo gallery if the OP hasn't seen it yet.
