I was just wondering who has one on their medium duty. I know its included with the MTE done up trucks. Is it an overlay, or do you hack out the grille lattice and insert the grille. I know Carriage Works has one for the Chevy/GMC but its an overlay over the original grille. Anyone with a MTE truck able to tell me which one they have, And how the GMC or Chevy symbol is mounted over the grille insert.
Im really looking to make my truck stand out a bit more, And I have always loved the look of billet grilles.
My second question is whom makes an under the lug simulator kit that is high quality, and wont make noise etc. Id prefer a kit with openings for the locking hubs, rather than having to pop covers off to lock the hubs


Thanks In advance, I should have ordered the Alcoas

I run phoenix sims on my truck and love them 3 yrs now and they still look perfect. I think you can find them with the cut outs for the hubs I bought mine from "HERE" as I buy ALLOT of stuff from there.

I had a buddy design a billet grille for my 03, We used a 1/2" Plate of aluminum put a slight curve on it and cut the pattern with a waterjet machine. It turned out great. We powdercoated between the finns and on the backside including brackets that were welded on.

Davedan let's see some pics of your grill, sounds interesting. I have a Putco grill that MTE uses brand new for sale if anyone is interested. I bought it before the front end change; it's never been out of the wrapping.
