Have you ever tried to install an aftermarket billet grille before? It's not that easy, is it? There's usually odd-shaped L-brackets that don't quite fit like they should, bars with gaps that aren't quite symmetrical, and by the time you're finished with the install you probably feel like you went ten rounds with Rocky. Well, this is not that billet grille. By the time we were done with this install, we were in a better mood than when we began, which is amazing.

Carriage Works bolt-over-logo billet grille is the real deal. We didn't have to cut, modify, drill holes, or otherwise molest our '08 Nissan Titan, and the parts fit perfect. The same can be said for the company's billet bumper insert as well. Industrial Motors, a shop in Anaheim, California, which specializes in building sport trucks, literally installed everything in under an hour and without tempers flaring or tools flying. Check it out.

What's In The Box?

These billet inserts (part number 44162 polished upper grille and part number 42152 lower grille) can be ordered in black powdercoat, brushed, and polished finishes. We opted for the bling look. The grilles come with everything needed to install them.

The Final Word
There's nothing worse than bad billet. It's a pain to install, never looks right afterward, and ends up being a huge waste of time and money. Thankfully, there are companies like Carriage Works producing quality parts. Like we said before, with the exception of four bolts being a bit short, this was a quick and painless install and the result speaks volumes.
