Can't really see the grill, so in those pictures it looks way better with the the emblem.

Sorry guys it's a black mesh wire grille and the inside the grille area is also black making it a tad difficult to see.

Pics are hard to see but I think it like it with the Cadillac emblem. Gotta rock the brand so people don't think your driving an Escadenali! ;)

I'm looking for a grill as well but I'm looking for one that is similar to the stock one, with just chrome on the hood strip and black everything else. I think I saw one on the 2012 Platinum version. But i want to black out the chrome on the emblem so it would look something like this:

p.s - not my truck just found it online, i blacked out the emblem with Photoshop just to show what I'm talking about.

any1 know where I could get the grill?

Just found a video as well LOL:

All they did was repaint the grille black, its all stock. Take your bumper off,separate the upper grill portion,have it painted, reinstall it,paint the upper chrome strip. and bang ur done :)

Im sorry but maybe its just me, who puts a black grille on a silver truck? makes it look like your grille is missing. not trying to be rude but giving my 2 cents

And make sure the body shop knows how to prep chrome. Poorly prepped chrome is just much more prone to rock chips and flaking.

He's got black and silver wheels...I think it looks pretty good together.

Well obviously me! Lol I think it looks pretty bad ass. Oh and that big hole in my front end aids in better cooling not to mention something different. I'm not your typical guy who looks at everybody's ride and says,"hey I want mine to look like that", be creative! Also just because a grill cost 4-5 grand doesn't mean it's going to make your ride 4-5 grand better than others. Might make it typical, like everybody else, just my two cents lol

I personally like the look.

However, I hope you used stainless steel - normally silver in color according to http://www.bwire.com/ instead of using plain steel.

Plain steel is black in color and will look good for a little while, but it will RUST like crazy eventually.

If you used plain steel, you have made a huge mistake, its CHEAP for a reason.

It's stainless painted black, trust me I'm in the automotive industry and wouldn't put just anything on. Also thanks for the comment.
