I was running the stock 04 and also the Harley grill. Both great in their own way. But then I added honeycomb top and bottom in satin black. Was never really drawn to that style, but love it now!
Awesome! Where did you purchase the honeycomb grills?

Speaking of all these different grilles someone want to tell me where you buy buy these mesh type grilles? It was on my truck when I bought it and I love it. People ask all the time where I got it, and I have no idea which way to point them

So the lower one is L specific and harder to find. I finally bought mine from one of the online Ford dealerships. They're also going up in price steadily, so probably better to pull the trigger soon. You can find the uppers used all over eBay for cheap as they came on the regular F-150s. I'd get an OEM one there, clean/paint it, and you'll be set!

Could be Grillecraft or could be homemade using mesh and 'hand forming' it...

Awesome thanks man! I'll have to keep my eye out for the lower grill and just grab a OEM upper on ebay.

I set the engine in, placed the Whipple on top and It doesn't fit. 🤬
Measure twice and cut once.. blah blah
Pulled the engine back out and started to tear out my wiper cowl panel.
The panel needs to get moved all the way back to the firewall.
🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Realized the tender wasn't plugged in.

Called and setup a bigger storage shed so I can put the lightning in storage with my 68. I'm tired of looking at.

Ordered the nitrous kit for the new setup (ZEX wet kit). Will be ordering a bottle pressure gauge and bottle warmer before the truck is ready to go to...

Looked at them as I pulled the plow truck out to plow my driveway! Then realized that we have another 2 months of this weather! :rolleyes:
