"Billet" usually means 'machined from a solid peice of material'.

Not all parts on the auto market advertised as such are truly 'billet', though. Most are cast and polished when it comes to a part like this.

Like the ones with the straight bars across like i see on the f150'*? cause those are ugly... thin straight lines on a car with graceful full bodied curves will not be aesthetically pleasing.
