Lipstick on a Pig - Rage Rover Grill

O.k. lip stick on a pig. I just installed a Rage Rover grill on the 90. Lots of cooling posibility but slam it if you will.

I hadn't even noticed the light bezel (which is a good thing) was different. The holes around the lights may let in a little bit more air in a stealth way, and it's hard to tell its not stock (in that pic). But I'm not too sure that that corrugated steel with holes of a grill will let in as much air as say a Heritage Grill, and it looks like it sticks out a bit.

Josh,
I actually have holes cut between the 2 running lights with some ducting (home depot special) to try to get a little more air into the engine compartment. I agree, the heritage looks like it would let in more air. The down side to this grill is that the light covers go over the existing black ones, which I was not aware upon purchase. I am not to thrilled about that but knowing me I will pull it off in a year for something else.
