Every time a new truck or SUV is released into the market, we sit back and watch as the entire aftermarket world scrambles to perform whatever research and development is necessary to get their product out for a given vehicle. Each year, there are one or two vehicles that grab everyone's attention because it is obvious to all that they will become the hot ticket for the next year and will be the vehicles to watch at SEMA come November.

This year, one of those vehicles is the newly redesigned '03 Expedition. Leaner and meaner than its predecessor, we're sure its chiseled good looks will serve the aftermarket industry well.

One of the first on a soon-to-be long list of enhancements available for the '03 Expys is the polished billet grille from Carriage Works. This high-quality grille looks right at home on the new-model Fords, especially since the cool factory chrome bezel is retained to accent the insert. Another bonus is that Carriage Works also makes a matching insert to fit the opening in the bumper below the grille.

We caught up with the folks at S.A. Motorsports as they installed one of the first Carriage Works billet inserts in a fresh-off-the-lot Expedition. As always, don't forget to check the Web sites for additional information and give Carriage Works or S.A. Motorsports a call if you have any questions.
