Which grill do you prefer?

The stock black grill or the aluminum grill? My son hates the stock one, but I prefer it.

Stock is better. Not a big fan of those after market grills. Nice Blazer!

Re: Which grill do you prefer?

Stock grill definitely. That type of aftermarket grill looks very dated these days. My dad still has one on his truck he built in the early 2000s and now he's wanting to switch back to a stock grill. Too bad he tossed it in the trash back then when he put the aftermarket grill on!

I dont like billet grills in anything. Even new vehicles look cheap to me.

Re: Which grill do you prefer?

I vote for the stock one too. There's a NOS one in the box locally and I just can't hack the money for it. Guess i'll live with mine.

Thanks Harold, Upper molding is not stock on mine. I wasn't aware that upper trim strip was factory available.

Re: Which grill do you prefer?

I like stock, but I like em the stock color. I also like the old school tube grills if they fit the style of the truck. Not a billet fan.

I like the stock. The other may look better with a bow-tie in the middle. A little too plain in my opinion.

I've always preferred the stock over any aftermarket grille.

Re: Which grill do you prefer?

In answer to your poll, painted black , but I prefer stock. All though I have had custom aluminum channel and painted, both black and body color.
