zip ties are what i'm using, just paint the zip tie the color of your truck to match

hmmm...

INSTEAD OF USING ZIP TIES, JUST MAKE SOME SMALL TABS OUT OF METAL, 'GLASS, A BROKEN GRILLE, ETC...AND THEN ATTACH THEM TO THE GRILLE SHELL(ABOVE THE OPENING, AND BELOW IT) MAKE YOUR GRILLE BIG ENOUGH THAT YOU LEAVE ABOUT 3/4 OF AN INCH ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM. THEN JUST USE SCREWS AND WASHERS BIG ENOUGH TO COVER THE HOLES IN THE MATERIAL(I AM ASSUMING YOU GUYS ARE TALKING ABOUT MAKING LIKE A SPEED GRILLE TYPE INSERT). ZIP TIES WILL STILL JIGGLE, AND CHIP YOUR PAINT, NOT TO MENTION BE A LITTLE TACKY ON A BRAND NEW TRUCK. IF IT WAS SOME OLD PEICE OF SH-T I COULD UNDERSTAND...LOL
IF MY EXPLANATION IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND, LET ME KNOW. SORRY BOUT THE CAPITALS, JUST NOTICED CAPS LOCK WAS STUCK ON....

haha, i was thinking the same thing but i already have a speed grille insert for my valance and i was lookin at home depot and the gutter guards didnt really look like it so i am kinda screwed. unless . . . i take out my grille i have on right now and make all new ones from the guards. but if you do decide to do it send some pics so i can see how it looks because i do not want to spend 200 for the two other grilles i need.

Painting my whole grill

Before i put on the "homemade inserts" I am going to paint my grill excluding the chrome strip gloss black like the rest of my truck.

The gutter stuff cost me a buck fifty for a peice. It came that color but later on I might make another one and paint it. Here is a pic I just took of it on my truck. I didnt bolt the grill down yet because im waiting on the red and black bowtie. Let me know what you guys/gals think.
