I just took off my billet grilles because I sold them as you all know, and the really weird thing is after I took them off...I just kind of stared at my X's front end for a few minutes and realized...I actually like the way it looks with them off better!



I can't wait until I get the EE X-Spec grille. Due to the weather I haven't been able to take my X into the body shop for everything. I'm going to keep that honeycomb liner behind the stock grille on when I put the X-Spec grille on, I don't want to see the radiator and plus I just like the look of that there.



Anyway, just thought I'd share these pictures with you for the hell of it...if for nothing else so you west coaster's can see what snow does to your Explorer!











You can view the full size images in the Photo Galleries, although its really nothing exciting. I'm not going to bother putting on the front emblem because in another two weeks or so this will be in the shop.

I like it w/o the grill, not a big fan of billit grilles and I think I like it better stock also. You are still getting that grille craft, right?

What Have I been telling you all for all these years. No Grill is the way to be!




It does look great!


Dude, didn't you know that I got the EE X-Spec grille?

I was about to, but ended up getting the EE X-Spec grille instead. I wanted more of a sleek look but not too gaudy or far from stock. That ended up fitting the bill.

I like it better with out. I've always like the painted grilles. But if you like the EE one, go for it. Got any pics of one installed?

I like it without. Looks just like mine except, of course, in black. I've been thinking about getting a SS speed grille but I don't know. There are too many other things I need done first like exhaust and chip.

Oh, I see, the two on either side are gone. Well, I do like it better and mine has a small crack in it so maybe I'll look into one in the future.

You know what Rob, I take back what I said before about the EE grille. I definately will look kick a$$ on your X. I regret what I said about it before.

Question do you think it would look "good" to get the EE X-Spec grille and have the inner grille painted that gray color? Or would that look bad? Because I'll be honest TAS for a few seconds there I **** you not I really thought I was looking at a XP8 front end.



EDIT: And I'm also finding it literally impossible to photochop that EE X-Spec grille to make the inner portion gray.

I told you it looked good.




Because I intended to install the speed grille, I had my painter only paint part of the grille and when I first saw my x afterwards I was thinking I should've had him paint the whole thing.

So do you think it would look good if i had the inner portion of the EE X-Spec grille including the bar in the middle painted the dark gray?
