    This is the best pic of mine that I have available right now. I think I paid like $100 for it. Mines an 85. I ordered it through the Base Exchange-military only. If you like it I can try to find the company that makes them.:whistle:

    Crap. I clicked on this thread hoping to see some Billet Trucker GIRLS, not grilles...

    Anyone know where I can find one of those?

    Sorry bro, I looked on the AAFES website and it looks like they no longer carry that vendor any more. I tried to do a search on the web, but half the websites are blocked on the Gov. computer:mad:

    Wish I could have been more help:(
