Looks like junk to me because its all plastic...Hell, it might be a "good" quality grille even but being all plastic I think it would probably not last too long...thats just my 2 cents tho:cheers:

Good point. And 100 bucks for a plastic grill just seems wrong! I think ill steer clear of this one.

Lots of people have that exact grill and the only complaint I've heard them have is that the mounting instructions and supplied hardware can be a bit shotty. Other than that, I've never heard of any of these breaking. As long as it's the ABS plastic.

Yea that would be a much better alternative! I do agree tho, the stock one is all plastic. Its just like a bunch of aftermarket stuff; the OEM plastic is always higher quality than aftermarket stuff. So basically I would just go with the billet because it would save you some trouble

If you want a metal mesh grill you're gonna have to pay big bucks. Check out royalty core or T-rex grills.

I've noticed that nearly all of the T-Rex billet grills show fitment for 04-07 only. Additionally I have seen some grills for 2008 only, and others say 2008-2014.

Was something special about the 2008 grill assembly?

OEM is all plastic, just more pieces of plastic. This one is plastic. Think Rammpage has one and he said he likes it. I was considering buying one of these and modding it with a steel mesh and making a cutout for a lightbar like the Rigid one. A little easier to stomach $100 for that test than straight up buying the $700 Rigid one.

Yea, agreed on that one! The only reason I even have one is because I got it at less then wholesale price...I got a guy I know at RI :sex0rs: lmao I don't blame you...$700 is freaking stupidly expensive haha.

The grills from all years will fit all years. There was a very slight remodel of the front grill from 08+ in looks only. Mounting locations are all the same. So any Titan grill will fit any Titan.

Thanks for the info everybody. I friggin love the ridgid one and I'm trying to talk myself into buying one.
I mean, a grill will cost 100-150.
EBay 50" light bar with brackets, wiring harness cost about 200-250.
If I go with the rigid one its only few hundred more... Right guys?? RIGHT ??? GUYS??? My wife is going to leave me.

Few hundo more plus a light bar to go in it. Just do what I did and get her a new car, a house, a puppy, and potentially a baby. She can't possibly say no after all that right?
