looks great! I really like the 250. Just curious, but how come you didnt mask off the DTR and turn signal reflector area? How bright are the bulbs when theyre on since theres nothing to reflect the bulb?

thanks! I masked off the DRL's and signals, but when I was finished i unmasked it and somehow some paint dripped onto the drl's, and i really didnt like the look, so I just painted it all black. My lights still work fine, you can see signals clearly, and there isnt much of a difference....

How all did you do that, and what kind of paint did you use, if you don't mind me asking. Thanks.

I heated up the silicone with a heat gun, then opened the lens up, loosened the two hex nuts and a screw, then used krylon fusion paint (black) and did about 3 coats, no clear coat, no sanding required. Then used some gasket maker (silicone high temp seal) to seal them back up and installed them. You interested in them? Just a $20 project with about 3 non-consecutive hours of work.

Yeah I like them a lot, I've been thinking about doing mine.

250...Do you mind getting some more pictures of that grille. I'm stuck between that grill and either blacking our or chroming my stock grille. I definitely want to see that grill on a black truck though. Can you really see through the area around the the chrome squares (I'm worried that the chrome square things are spaced a little wide, showing off the black plastic support thats holding it to together. I don't want it to look like a cheap plastic POS grill) Thanks a lot man

Save your money and just get a E&G mesh one, wayyyyy better. Or paint your stock one. I dont like this grill too much. I'm replacing it with a E&G Mesh grill.
