Billet grilles are so called because the bars appear like metal billets, square section metal bars created when metal is cast or extruded. Traditionally, billet grilles were made of aluminum. The majority of the billet grilles we offer are aluminum, but our billet grilles are also available in stainless steel, ABS plastic, and fiberglass/composite. In addition to material, you also have your choice of vertical or horizontal bars, with thin bars spaced closely together or thicker bars spread further apart, and with polished, brushed, chrome plated, or painted/powder coated finish.

Of course, to some, the term billet grille refers to any type of custom grille. If vertical or horizontal bars aren’t your style you also may choose a large variety of mesh and CNC grilles. Browse our review and you’ll see we have grilles that are appropriate for any car, truck or SUV, from highly polished mesh grilles that will upgrade even the finest luxury cars, to wild CNC patterns that will let you express your individuality. With so many unique styles to choose from, the only problem you’ll have will be making a choice!

Mesh grilles are available in aluminum, stainless steel, and ABS plastic. The mesh is cut and formed by machine or produced by weaving strands of stainless steel. The weave is one of the main things that separates and distinguishes different mesh grilles, and we offer grilles in a range of weaves from very fine mesh to dual weave patterns, in finishes including polished, powder coated, and chrome plated. If you’ve got a rugged off-roader you can’t do better than a black mesh grille with integral LED light bar and studs around the perimeter.

CNC grilles allow you to make a personal statement, with distinctive patterns and designs created on precision CNC (Computer Numerical Control) equipment. To create such complex patterns and intricate designs CNC machining centers are necessary because only computer control and automation can ensure the balance of proportions that result in a perfect grille. CNC grilles range from simple punch grilles to elaborate tribal designs, flames, slots, spider webs, and vehicle manufacturer’s logos and symbols. You can even show your patriotism with a stars and bars flag inspired grille!

Along with an unmatched assortment of designs and finishes, we also offer grilles with different methods of installation: overlays, grille skins, inserts, and complete replacements. If you want to makeover your ride with the least amount of effort then go with an overlay or grille skin. An overlay installs over your existing grille and is attached with hidden clamps or bolts. You won’t have to get the drill or the saw out for installation, but you may be able to detect your original grille behind the overlay if you look from certain angles. Grille skin installation is even easier as it just snaps into place.

Installing an insert or a replacement grille is more involved. Since an insert replaces the main part of your grille, the old part must be cut out, and this may require removal of the front fascia. The fascia also requires removal to install a replacement grille, but because a replacement grille completely replaces your existing grille, depending on model you may be able to unbolt the original grille and bolt on the new grille. Finally, you can further customize your ride and make it your own with a custom grille emblem, available in finishes including chrome and polished stainless steel.
