To get a visualization of just how much the popularity of off-road rigs has exploded in recent years, all you really need to do is take a drive down any highway in America and count the rigs. It won't take long to get into the double digits. Here are four of the best grille options you should consider for your truck.
The Grille Insert
Most trucks' grilles are already rugged and sleek, but if you prefer to put your own spin on it, it's never been easier to swap out the stock option for an insert of your choice. There are countless alternatives on the market including honeycomb, mesh, horizontal bars, diamond patterns, etc. You can go for the classic brand logo, flag patterns, or you can even come up with a design that's all your own with some of the more customizable options.
Behind-Grille LED Mount Plate
One feature you should absolutely have on your rig is a plate for mounting your own customizable LED lights because there are a seemingly endless variety of cool LED grille light packages available. A mount plate bolts directly to the grille support and has mounting slots that allow you to choose your own lighting options like LED light bars, accent lights, and more. These plates are typically made of steel and CAD-designed and engineered to fit on every truck, usually specific to body style, so you can pick from the right year and sub-model if you need to.
Behind-Grille LED Light Bar
Off-roading comes with its fair share of surprises, but you can eliminate many of them by installing a light bar to guide your way on the darkest trail. The behind-grille light bar is extra appealing because of the subtle and unobtrusive design options that keep the bar hidden behind the grille where it's out of the way but still easy to fire up when you need those extra beams.
LED Raptor Lights
A very popular option on today's off-road trucks is an accessory light package commonly referred to as raptor lights. These are the four small accessory lights mounted above the grille's logo. Although originally made popular by the Ford Raptor, the name has become ubiquitous for this type of light package for off-road trucks. Even though they look sleek, additional LED lights like raptor lights aren't just for show; they also provide additional visibility for your rig on the highway and that's always a good thing.

One of the first things I always replace in my vehicles is the stereo system. Although newer vehicles come equipped with some very nice stereo systems, there are always elements that are overlooked and need to be improved upon. If you aren't happy with the audio equipment in your vehicle, my blog is a great place to start. You will learn everything about what you have installed by the factory and advice for components that you can add to it to make it something that blows your mind and makes the listening experience greater than you ever thought could be possible.
