Any one here have this grille?

I can't seem to find a picture of it on an actual truck and wanted to see how it looks before purchasing. Thanks.

IMO hideous. I've seen them on trucks and think they are ugly.

We have a guy here who put one on his truck a year ago. Falling apart (multiple cracks) in less than a year

Thanks for the replies, guys. That's good to know. What are the other options for decent aftermarket grilles?

IMO, the best option is a stock grille with aftermarket billet inserts. You should be able to find an original shell on Craigslist, eBay, salvage yard, etc.

Thanks for the reply. I'll look into the billet inserts. Is there a specific company who makes quality inserts I should be looking for?

I honestly don't know. I have a '94-98 style GMC grille in my Tahoe now & also had the same conversion on my old '93. Both grille shells already had the billet installed though, so I'm not sure what brand they are/were. I had the phantom billet in my '93 at one time, but I can't remember what company it was from. One name I've seen fairly common on aftermarket sites is T-Rex. Maybe someone else can chime in with whatever brand they have.
