    The J-Jents isn't produced anymore, so finding one used is the only way to get a hold of it. I picked one up a few months back from another member but still haven't installed it since I'm planning on making it better match the look of the HD upper using homemade mounting brackets.

    For now just do the "chrome moulding mod." It looks very good and is cheap... doing just the lower grille will require one roll of chrome moulding bought from Auto Zone, etc. Mine is 1/8" moulding but a lot of guys go with 3/8".

    Here's a few pics of mine with the HD upper and chrome grille mod lower:

    No thanks :thumbsup:, I started to put it on a couple weeks ago but realized there would be more modifying than I had anticipated in order to achieve the look I'd like, so she's on hold until I can get to my folks shop to do a little metal fabrication. If you mount the J-Jents the way they're intended to mount the protrude from the front of the fascia. Personally I think it looks tacky. If you look at the HD upper you'll notice the horizontal bars sit about an inch inside the outer bezel... I want the J-Jents to sit behind the bezel as well. Doing so will require me to remove the entire center portion of the OEM lower grille so just the outer bezel remains, then make brackets that will position the J-Jents were it needs to be.

    I did mask-off and paint the vertical supports on the back side of the J-Jents this past weekend so they won't be visable... at least I'm making some progress.



    I guess I've been fortunate, I've had the same moulding in place for about a year and a half now :shrug:.
