Best grill?

Ok so I will post this down here...as I asked up in the 4 sale section sale looking for opinions on using a rage rover grill on the front of a truck. So what grill do you think looks good on a defender? Rage rover, lrx ( like the one Justin sells) stock, heritage? Truck is black with a silver front role cage and silver powder coated frame.

It's your truck, do what you want with it.

I'm kind of partial to the Heritage with the military version coming in close second. If anyone has either of these for sale please drop me a PM.

I was thinking weber also but now that I see your question I don't think there is a correct answer

You need to post a pic - that sounds...interesting.

Black Heritage Grill is da bomb.

Not a huge fan of the silver Heritage Grill, but maybe it would be fitting with the rest of your silver.

I'm partial to the $20 one. If you want to get really fancy, you can put a $10 "Land Rover" badge on it

Reminds me that I'm bummed that Buck never made the front grill to match the wingtop vents.
