Could you describe it a little better. the instructions on how to install this grille are complete crap. do i need to cut out all of the bars in the middle of the grill?

I looked at your pics, With your 4x4 grille you can cut the Gray part out leaving the chrome and put the grille in like this. This is Trepaul's old truck
