well you cant get the 01-03 grilles for an 05, the hood, headerpanel, and grilles are different, they do make a honeycomb grille for 04-present, i did the swap youre talking about. look in my sig and click the link. you can find it on ebay. 04-05 4wd honeycomb grille.

Thank you, the truck im looking like has basicly the same grill as yours did, i really like the way the honeycomb grill looks, the all black grills isn't bad but not great, how hard was it to put the new grill in? just a few screws and popped it in?

4 screws up top, and 2 tabs on the bottom, and it pops out, and the new one goes in. takes 5 minutes.

I would either go with the chrome grille like in my avatar or the sport horizontal bar one.
