I recently did the RC grille swap on my truck, and what an absolute pain in the ass that was. Anyone have before and after pictures of theirs?
it is. they didn't give the best instructions either.That's the one where you have to hack up the oem and drill holes and what not isn't it?
yea right that sticker is $76 at a dealership to replace!Should have at least taken the sticker off of the condenser...
Its about .250" once the two layers are together. Its a ring that goes around the grille aspect. I can snag some pictures later, it was def a PITA as the instructions just show a picture of a tech holding a sawzaw near the grille, but not arrows or ref. to what actually needs to be cut. I cut it out slowly so I didn't over-do it and then spent an hour trying to find a video/write up. I didn't. I should've done an instructional but it was hot that day and I was just getting frustrated with the amount of hacking and lack of instruction on their paper. I can likely write up something post-install that would help I'm sure.Yeah I was looking at one myself and thought it would be a PITA after looking at the instructions.
how thick is the main rc piece that bolts to the chrome oem grill? I was worried about it sticking out (on top of the grill) and looking goofy and I was also worried about it not contouring to the oem well.
Can you get some up close shots of it?
