We found these stars and stripes themed grilles over at AutoAnything.com. They’re precision cut from 1/4″ stainless steel that’s then polished “to a brilliant shine.” The manufacturer claims they install on most trucks with just a 9/64″ hex-key wrench (included). Our only concern: that doesn’t look like much airflow, and I’d guess rocks would slip through the star-shaped holes pretty easy.
Note: In competition with our friends at The Hardware Aisle, we’re posting lots of patriotic tools today and tomorrow. Look for a post on Wednesday (the 4th) where you can vote for your favorite. And don’t forget to submit your favorite patriotic tools! If your suggestion is the reader favorite, we’ll send you a tool from the test pile — something nice.
Still, it’ll certainly set your truck apart from the others at the jobsite. Pricing runs from $86 to $211 depending on your truck’s make and model.
