here are some pics.. what a PITA it was to line up:rant2: ...
whoever said they got it on in an hour either had the perfect grill/header panel ever made, or it's waaay off. this thing drove me insane, at a shop, with another mechanic helping. but when it was all said and done it really looks sweet, pics don't do it justice, my rims should be here by Mon-Tues, i'll upload some of those as well (Factory 17's chromed)

hope this helps anyone looking into whether or not it's worth the $$$$..cause it definately is:worship:

It certainly makes the front look more formal. I'm partial to the sport grille.

if i didn't have my TBSS I would've bought the sport model, but $460/mo is as much as i can spend w/o sacraficing other things in our lives, i don't work to pay for cars (a long time ago i factored in $1000/mo on car payments knowing if I could afford that I would always have us in 2 new cars that were decent, and that's the way it's been for the last 5 yrs. before i started working this job i had to own one new and one older used car and that sucked, I am grateful we do OK, I don't take what little we have for granted)

I have never seen so many TBSSs in one place.

It (TBSS) was a definite consideration when I got my 06 AWD N* SRX this summer. Unfortuneatly, I felt I needed a third row. I only use it about 10 times a year, but can't live without it during those times. I often question my decision and your photos do not help!

I thought this would be a good "side by side" comparo of the "Supreme Strut grill" against the lowly E&G lol!
seriously I would like to hear some comments on what looks nicer, to you... I am kinda torn,
I have the E&G and wouldn't spend that much on a strut, and I'm not sure it looks better than the E&G??

Hip is something on me that I hope doesn't go out. Hey, I have a Cadillac, a Lincoln, and a cane.

I have always liked the Strut grills on the Escalades on Unique Whips (show on Speedvision) but I don't like it on the SRX that much, unless that one is just a plain design with the emblem, not one Strut would build, inturn short changing them somewhat?

Our opinion could be a little bias, but the E&G looks great!! Well worth the effort!! The chrome plating of the E&G matches the OEM much better!! Not to mention you saved thousands of coin!

Great Job! :thumbsup:

Yeah i'm in the Toms River area, and yeah, there are plenty of modded TBSS's out here, unless your SRT8 is packin a blower or spray it would be best to "lay low" lol.. we've done H/C, Kooks LT's, Vig Converter on a GC Srt8 and it can't hang with the TBSSwith identical mods, Chryslers have practically ZERO tuning capability limiting it's modding potential..

what a bitch to put in (properly), the fitment was not what I expected from a near $500 grill, it still isn't "perfect" but it's acceptable. to anyone looking at the car, it's good (I am just too anal) when I start pointing a couple things out they look at me like I am insane:thepan: ....
