'06 Pony Grill Installed

Got the grill installed today. Not too hard, thanks to FoMoCo's new "slot A-tab B" style of building cars. Had to make a couple of brackets to mount the driving lights to the grill (3/4" aluminum plate) and modify the light brackets to sit a little closer to the light body, but other than that it went smooth. Speaking of those driving lights, the guy I got the grill from would have been more than happy to sell me the factory light kit for an additional $380. I politely declined and headed to Wal-Mart to pick up a set of Optronics Pro Burner 55w lights for $19.99. They are very slim, and just happened to be 3.25 in diameter, the right size for the holes. Total cost, including some screws and spacers from Lowes, came to $135. See it in my sig, and check out all the pics at my site.

Looks good man. I think I almost prefer that look to the GT grill.

Thanks! It reminds me of the '66 my buddy had back in High School (I was a Mopar guy back then!). I like the new GT's, but the driving lights have always seemed a little big compared to the headlights. I think this let's them stay in a little better proportion.

Yeah, it definitely resembles the classics more than the huge fog lights on the GTs.

I personally like the GT style better, but that's an opinion.

They definitely are an improvement over stock. Nice job.
