Niiiice!  I can't wait to see some better pics!  I like the grill as well..   Wish I could figure out a nice spoiler to fill the gap below the bumper a bit without looking to awkward or tacked on.. ..

                 When I put the Billit Grille in I had to relocate the parklamps so we are going to cut the bumper and mount inboard driving lights 3.5" dia on either side of the license plate area. That should make a statement! Then it's off to the chrome shop. Pictures will follow after I refit it before the chroming.  Gary

Dude!! I was totally looking at my bumping the other day and how it sticks out so far ( mainly because i almost checked the mailbox with it backing out of the driveway ) and i was wondering if this was possible. 

Was it difficult?

             Yes It still has to go to the chrome shop for the final plating process .

Wow!!! that is beautiful!  How hard was it?  What did you have to do?  I will be in need of a bumper soon.

             The really hard part is sectioning the ends and fitting them . What you see here is about 12hrs. of work . Pretty time consuming my friend Rusty is an awesome fabricator without him it would have been overwelming. It just depends on your welding skills and grinding to shape the ends.
