Well after trying to find a billet bar style grill to fill the massively wide opening in the bumper I had Colin Hurst section and narrow the opening to a more "normal" size. That man has some serious skills and he is really starting to hate it when I say "what do you think of....?". It always ends with him doing me a one off job and eating up lots of his time. Lol! Thanx Colin! You Da man! Anyways not even 3 days after getting it back from him I find the grill I've been searching for on a rarely seen Hemi powered 2500.

Here's the in progress pix to show what was actually done because after he's done, you'll never be able to tell it didn't come that way.



And the finished product. I love it soo much better now. It hides the frame and mounts and now fits that new insert perfectly.



Close up of the insert. I'll be customizing the mouting to bring it up closer to the bumper opening.



And here's what it used to look like.


Next on the list is to suicide my rear doors and get the super C-notch done from Dallas HotRod Parts.

Thanx guys. This truck in in a constant state of change. Like I said getting my rear doors suicided soon. That I can't wait to get done. Then it's off to get the rear frame modified to tuck the rear tires. After that a nice custom interior is slated for it. Wish I had more $$$. All this would get done quicker.

Where did you find the lower grille insert that you had been searching for?

It came stock on the 2010-2012 2500 Hemi powered trucks since they didn't have intercoolers or winches in that area like the Power Wagon or CTD's. Got lucky and saw a used 2010 2500 gasser on the local lot while my buddy was buying his 2012 Express QC.

Here' the truck I found it on. Looks better in my narrowed bumper opening.

I can't wait to get home so I can see the pictures (stupid work blocks them). Your truck is one of the revolving wallpapers on my PC. It is a great looking custom ride with subtle touches that the normal person would never see.

This truck never ceases to amaze us.

Although I like the aggressive look of the original cutout the new rendition just seems to flow with the truck a little better.

Why do the suicide doors, your truck will look like a Chevy or a Ford and not a Ram!

Now that I am home and could check out the pictures I can comment on it. I like the shape of the stock 2500 cutout, but the way the new cutout looks seems to suit the face of your truck nicely. The lower grill will probably look better once you can move it a bit closer to the bumper with some spacers.

are you gonna color match the lower grill inserts to be the same as the actual grill?

Actually I'm going to paint the upper inserts satin black to match the lowers. The upper grill us starting to chip from daily driving. Gotta love it.
