Question On Grill

Hi, I just purchased this truck this week. I was wondering is there anything to buy to fill up these openings? Or should i even bother? Is there something to get that is simple to install?

Thanks.

What do you mean? Do you not want the white behind the grill to show through?

You can get the mesh that goes behind the grille but to me It looks tacky. My Opinion is just leave the grille how it is or get a body color grille

What’s with the gaps between the hood and grille on the sides of the upper edge of the grille.

Doesn’t look like it fits.

Pull the grille and paint the white black then add the mesh stuff.

Just for kicks, can you get some measurements of the gaps around the grill?

Wow Ford is slipping.
they seem excessive to me but probably like that on all of them.

So what have you decided to do to the grille to change it up ?

Sure I am assuming you mean the gaps by the emblem. Appreciate the help. The top gap length is 22 and half inches. The middle gap is 21 and half inches. The bottom one is 20 and a half inches. Each gap is two inches in width. I hope this is what you asked. Thanks!

I meant the gaps between the grill and bottom of the hood and the gap between the grill and the top of the bumper

R U tlkg abt the Emblem or the Hood/Grille match up ?

I started asking about the Hood/Grille matchup, wondering if the hood or the grille had been changed because the gaps on the sides were too big, IMHO.

Yeah, its not the best look for a front end, mine had that same blah look when I picked it up. Textured grill and bumpers makes it look like some parts truck. I went with a bug screen behind the grill, swapped out with the chrome grill and then got the paintable upper fascia.
