Very nice!

I didn't know they came with those grills back in 98. Make the front end look a lot more aggressive. smile

Thanks! Those grills didnt come with that year though. They came out in 03 till 05 when it was discontinued. My dad couldnt find a 98 grill so he went with the 03-05. I agree, it does make it look more aggressive! Glad to be here with you guys!

the tri-shield center caps, last I checked, were not too much $$ at the dealer. I bet they have gone up, though. You might want to check just for grins. Last I looked Riv chrome or painted "R" center caps were about US$60 per on monsterpartsonline.com.

You can also check ebay. There were a lot of hits when I just looked. Not sure what matches your wheel but there are probably a few on there.

Looks sharp, I agree with others that the grille makes it look executive.

ebay will be cheaper than dealer most likely. Only advantage of "new" vs used for the caps is the newer (hopefully newer) plastic won't get brittle as fast. Issue as you know is the tabs snap off usually from hamhanded mechanics.

They will be less on monsterpartsonline.com and although shipping is not free they won't soak you.
