Thanks for the video, it was very helpful. I installed my grille last night and cannot over emphasize the necessity of removing the wheel liners and tires. The 15 minutes it takes will save many a knuckle and hour. Honestly,. I do not see how you can really install the grille without taking this action. Once you remove the wheels and liners, you have full access to all the bolts. What took me the most time was disconnecting the wiring harness connector. It did not want to come apart. Make sure you pull the white tab completely out of the connector. Seems counter-intuitive but that is what it took to get mine apart. Total time from unpacking grille to wiping down the install was about 1.3 hours. Post a picture later.

I need to replace my driver side front fender and possibly my bumper and your first video will make taking these pieces off a breeze. Thanks!

I just finished installing my heritage grill. These two videos are EXCELLENT!!! I had my tablet on the work bench and kept pausing and starting the video to make sure that I was able to go step by step and get everything exactly the way it needed to be. Bravo for two videos very well done!!

So being of a certain age and not running ultra marathons anymore, I am thinking about having either the dealer or their body shop do this exchange. What do you thing would be a expected cost for the labor?

Very good instructions in the DIY thread. I have had my front clip off 6 times. Changed my grill 3 times.
