Sorry if you already stated it once before but are you 2wd or 4wd?

How did you do that? Is it black vinyl lettering?
Yep. took them a couple tries to get the sticker just right, and it sucks because you can't put it on with soapy water so you really only have one chance to do it, or you need a new sticker.

Dan- The mall crawler is a 2wd, I wanna buy a beater that someone has already invested 10k+ in to do offroading (as soon as I have a two car garage)

Rinky- I've been toying with the idea of doing the mesh grille in black, but I think it really pops right now in stainless steel, maybe down the road i'll get it painted to match.

NICE!! I think you should do the black grille, but my opinion is biased, lol. I think We got the same grille, from grille guy, right? Did you have a fun time cutting all that plastic underneath out? I did. :cussing:

LOL! Here is the link for the grille I got. I will post pictures of mine this weekend.

I had to take the grille apart like you did and I cut out the middle part that held the Nissan hamburger. Plus I didn't use the rubber out line that this product came with. I got the RAZR grille option with 5/32" holes powdercoat black. I really liked the blacked out front it looked nice, then I decided to get the matching NISMO badge for the front too. It's funny I got pulled over because I didn't have my plates in the front mounted and the cop gave me a fix it ticket and on the ticket he wrote NISMO..lol.

well I can't powdercoat it unless I make a whole new grille. I made my grille from a sheet of stainless steel mesh (some really thick, hard as hell to cut and bend stuff) that I used a cut-off wheel to cut to the dimensions I wanted and epoxy to mount behind where I cut out the factory grille, I had to dremmel out the entire factory honeycomb to do it. real pain in the ass. I can paint it however, I may do that, we'll see.

I really like the stainless though... :(
