Default Need your Grill advice

Okay, thinking about going with one of two grills that Race and Street is selling, so I've mocked up the photo with the pictures they sent me to try and see how it looks. Three pics: original, Q style, and Mesh style.

Please let me know your opinions!

As it is today:


Mesh style:


Q style:

Thumbs up Re: Need your Grill advice

That's funny Don!

I would also stay with the Original. I'm more on the bling side, but with the upper grille strips along with the 3-bar lower grille, it matches your rims better.

I'll vote for the original, it looks like it belongs on the car.

Robin, on your car, I think the mesh would look killer if you add a chrysler emblem in it.

Hey their Chromenut,

I am kinda liking the stock myself, but also could see the Mesh, but with a slight twist. I think the Mesh would look decent, and match your wheels if you kept the polished outer rib, but either paint, or powder coat the inner part of the grille black. Same for the bottom and it would blend into the car nicely I think.

That's my 2 cents anyways.

Go easy, and let us know whatever you decide.

I think that wil bel pretty sick! Doing that with the Q style would also match while leaving the wider trims SS. Definitely would contribute to QSD's idea :P

Whoa Nelly!! Now that I've done this, that second one is totally bitchin!!! Oh, definietly a good idea to black out the interior!!! Don't like the mesh as much now as I do the other with the big SS down the center...





Great suggestion, now just need to make up my mind. Definitely not staying factory now that I've looked at these!

Think before I do this I may paint my factory grill black with the chrome off first to see how that looks, then put the chrome on and see again.
