Default who makes the grille

it's a horizontal billet grill, but the top rows wrap around pretty far to where it fills the space above the lights. if that makes sense.

If it's the grill I'm thinking of, nobody makes it anymore. The manufacturer went out of business. Does it look like this....

Find someone who's selling one, but since it's so unique, the people who bought them usually hang onto them. No other after-market manufacturer that I know of picked it up.

ackack,

Are you still around. The grill your looking for was called "The Mirage" and as I said the company went out of business. I've since learned that SoCal Speed Shop either bought all their stock or is making the same kind of grill.

Apparently they were running an eBay auction for that grill and someone from PT Crew.com got it. He posted pictures on that web site.

Might want to look them up on Google and give them a call to see if they have any more.

I'm the one who scooped up the eBay grill in question. Here's a pix of the grill layed down loose......


There is more to it than just the grill. There is an entire new fascia like PT Chix's and a rear roll pan.

It may be true that SoCal could have copied some or all of the Mirage kit. I see a similar fascia on their web page, but they don't seem to have the grill.

To make a long story, short..... Someone claimed that they phoned the eBay seller and was told that my kit was a SoCal grill kit. I don't know why that person posted that because when I picked up the kit from the seller, a small Dodge dealer parts manager, he never got that call, never told anyone that and didn't know who the maker of the grill kit was. He took over as the parts manager in a dealership sale and found the kit stored away, unboxed, unlabled. There's more to the story but that's the gist of it.

That's why I'm saying this kit is a genuine Mirage and the last of it's kind.
