    yea i took a dye grinder, a jigsaw and a hack saw and i just cut the middle out of the grill and if you have sharp edges take a file and make it level, then just put the billet in and screw anywhere

    I am about to install a billet grille on my truck

    It says i need to cut out the old grille bar.

    Can you explain (or show pics) of where exactly to cut the factory bar?

    I dont want to cut out too much and have it look like crap, or worse have the billet grille not fit/bolt on......

    Pics would be awesome showing where you cut your factory grille.

    Thanks GUYS!!!
