The grill block is made from the bedliner of a pickup truck. Anything will work, but I like the look and it's virtually indestructible. I just cut two pieces to fit and used stainless steel screws to hold it in place. The center of the grill is open and I use the license plate to cover that. I have multiple screw holes for the plate and I move it based on ambient temps.

That's quite creative, Gas Fumes. But don'tcha think the pickup truck owner will notice that hold in his bedliner?

What about what's below that? Where'd you get that perfect fitting piece that holds the tire air redirect flaps?
