Get rid of the running boards. Black headlights with black grill. I dont really like the look of the bug guards.

The grille surround the 2wd xlt has a top to it, wouldn't that hinder just swapping in the honeycomb? I think he will need the entire grille surround as well.

Ok, Missed the picture part then. Justin is right, you will have to just swap grille and surround so it will be easier except you will have to paint the surround

Yes you can! i used some good old rattle can to paint mine. Painted one day then let it dry for another day just to be safe. Pulling the grille is fairly easy to.

Not a clue... one moment i was fine and the next i noticed steam from the engine compartment and i was running hot and fortunately i got off the road. all the fluid was gone and i had to get towed to my shop. But when i gt the radiator replaced, they really messed up and didnt tighten some bolts or something tight enough as it is still leaking substantially and im really frustrated. gonna try to get those bolts tight tonight sometime.
