Help!! Ss Grille Problem!!

It's almost a half inch not wide enough?!?!

Did any of you guys with the grille have to bend it out???

Or should I call up Street Scene?

yea mine came like that too. Try to center it as much as you can and there will be less of a gap on one side.

I'm sure Zach has already told you all this.

You'll have to bend it a lil. I snapped out my entire honeycomb grille, then used a dremel and cut out all the edges that stuck out and were preventing the SS grille from sitting further in the stock grille position.

WORD TO THE WISE: When working on your truck (after grille is installed) DO NOT lean on the grille. It WILL BEND.

I bent mine down the middle when I was trying to remove the stock fan. I had to take it out and bang it back with a hammer. Luckily it went back perfectly and the letters didnt fall off.

Put it in one of the top corners or take it off. Just looks out of place where it is.

Grille looks sweet though!

Either leave it off or put it in the middle. You'll still be able to see it a bit through the Hellas.

Looks good! Def do something about those tow hooks. Even black would look 10x better.



Oh btw...your door fell off. :)

It hasn't really rained in about 2-3 months. There is a "watering ban" in town. No one is allowed to water their yards.

But I live in BFE, so I can waste all the water I want...lol.

I need to get my **** lifted... with some big *** tires.
