2012 Grillcraft

Well, I suggest you go for it, here's upper and lower

I'll upload more pics, with a write up and install tips soon!










this shows how much room I left in the corner for install, I'd leave a tiny bit more of the black on the corner if I did this again...


stock grille cut up, very easy with the 2012


when you are taking the stock grille off, there are tabs in all these little slots you see on the top of the bumper, you just have to wiggle them out..


other than that, paint everything behind the grille black while you have it off, including the rad and rad supports..

Thats a lot of money (>$350) for a grill that you have to install and cut open your old grill yourself. But it definately looks great!

On that website, anyone know where they got those 2012 projector headlights? I really like those!!

Just finished up my GCraft mesh. Sort of reviving a few month old thread but whatever.

Thought y'all would like to see what I did with mine.

Cheers,

Looks awesome OP! I like the Gcrafts better on the '12s than the previous years. They are extremely durable too.

Looks great, Ross. owned an '11 full grillcraft prior to my satoshi, and also on a previous dodge dakota. both were outstanding. Even Homertaco has attested to the finish on grillcrafts grills, which surpass a simple powdercoating and/or rattlecan finish as it has an almost "rubber"-like finish which is extremely durable. also, Jerry of grillcraft was terrific to deal with when i inquired about a scoop piece for the '11 model which they did not manufacture at the time, sending me small sheets of the same mesh, untouched of course, to assist in creating a scoop version of my own
