What you should look for in a billet grille
Whether you call it a grille insert or a billet grille, aftermarket truck grilles represent some of the most distinctive truck accessories around, Canada. Perfectly suited on a rural or city rig, there’s no dismissing the style a custom-fitted billet grille adds to your truck.
When shopping for a grille, consider above all, your personal style. There are dozens of styles to choose from, so take the time to find out which one will work best with your rig.
When you consider the basic design of the grille, there are several options to consider; not least of all are studded frames, wire mesh, or a plain frame. What sort of shape do you want? Is there a pattern you’re particularly fond of? The point is, there are options – and at PartsEngine.ca, our virtual shelves are overflowing with them.
The two standard finishes you’re likely to find is a black finish and a chrome finish. Where a grille insert sporting a black finish is more subtle and mysterious, chrome grills are all about grabbing attention – either way, it’s all about personal preference.
Things to consider when deciding on a grille
- How many pieces is it? This is a good question to ask because generally speaking, one-piece construction is stronger than a billet grille that is comprised of several pieces.
- How to attach a billet grille to your truck? As you might infer from this question, there are two main methods for attaching a grille. While both methods feature a bolt-on assembly, grille inserts slide into the existing truck grille, bolt-on grilles are attached over it.
- Where does your grille attach to your vehicle? Before placing your order, know that some grilles are designed for your truck’s bumper, whereas others are made for the main grille area of your vehicle.
