for your year and model they are all the same no major cutting just some trimming of the grill surround to get it to sit flush with the new grill and then twisting off some pegs that hold the old plastic grill in
i got my carriage works billet grille from Wayne STUFFFORYOURRANGER.COM
btw i think a black billet grille would look good on your truck

Get the Carriage Works one from www.stuffforyourranger.com. great product and easy to install. I took my old grill off and put this one on in it's place.

i second the carriage works billet grille, all you need is a dremel to smooth out the grille shell itself and you are good to go. If you an follow directions you can put this grille on...easy.
