Yes and yes and yes ! I think that covers it !
I too think it will be my choice in the end, but it is good to hear what others think and it allows me a new line of thinking. Did that make sense ?
I had the Early Bronco red lettering on the '03 OEM Grill, which I have always thought as a nice looking grill but I wanter a change. The OEM Grill has too much of a curve in it to add anything to it without a PITA mod so I decided a Tube Grill would be flatter, so I purchased a Black Tube Grill which is sitting there waiting for my decision on the Lettering.
I like the larger Oval but agree it is too big and might stick out too much and the Lettering... the EB lettering is too small and yes it doesn't match the Ranger Font on the side so there is a trade off there.
The Raptor Lettering is still up in the air, first pending the size report and second as you said the Font.
There is actually two more options, one is leave it, new Ford Oval, maybe a Red Oval, but that isn't me, I cant leave things alone. The second of the "more options" is make FORD Lettering using the EDGE Font, or the Ranger Font, either will take time to order, send in the font and hope they turn out as well as the Raptor Lettering from the web.
OK too much thinking going on here but I am who I am... !
Right now it is a plain Tube Grill, I need something RED, E4 RED that is, to put in the middle of it !

Scrambler, you left off option four: leave it the way it is. LOL
I've never been a big fan of the alternative color Ford logos. Ford makes them blue, and Ford blue is the way they should be (in my opinion). The large 9" oval would be way too big and would look out of place. The Bronco lettering -=OR=- the Raptor lettering wouldn't match the badging font on the rest of the truck, again, looking out of place.
I, being the opinionated b@$tard that I am, would leave it as it is, or maybe go with a badge delete, but that has its own set of problems to contend with.
At the end of the day, it is your truck and your tastes, which will be different from others. It really is just what YOU want to do and not what others (like me) think. :)
