Billet Grille

Im looking at these billet grilles they have on ebay for my 03 ranger XLT shell top open. Does anyone know if these are direct replacement of the factory grille or does it go over the factor grille or do i have to do some cutting and sanding? Do your reccomend this? It doesnt look bad but id rather get some of your opinions first. Is it really easy and direct replacement?

i got mine off ebay from a place called grille4u. it is easy to install requires no cutting drilling or sanding. All you have to do is remove the stock grille from the grille shell and bolt it on.

Yeah you guys got it easy. Us Gen 4 guys have to cut, sand drill, rivet, and ***** a lot to get a decent looking grill!

I got mine from the same place.

I'm wondering though, did you mount your lower billet back farther or how did you do that? Or is it different lower billet model than mine?

Mine is a Carriage Works I got from Stylinconcepts.com. It came out really nice. I have one on my 97 too.
