    Does anyone know the part number or where I can get this clip?

    It is one of the 2 clips at the bottom of the grill. Someone here, not naming names, said to remove the 2 top screws, 2 pushpins and then pull up with slight pressure to release the 2 bottom clips. DONT do this. You have to depress the tab on the side before the clips will release or else you will be looking for a new clip as I am. Anyway, did my grillcraft install, new black headlights, n-fab light bar and 4 Hella ff700s yesterday. All went well, but the one clip. I still need to wire up the lights and have my chrome grill color matched, although the chrome doesn't look as bad as I thought it would. Anyway here are some crapy phone pics:

    you mus not have been pulling it out straight up. Mine pop right out just fine. That being said, no I do not know the part number. Go to the dealership maybe?

    I had to replace those as well, they dont do so good when taking the grill off in 20 degree weather. The dealer by me charged me $8 for 4.

    Well, I am not trying to start something. He was just offering advice on one of the threads and I was just joking. But he did say remove top 4 bolts, which there are none. It is actually 2 screws and 2 push pins/clips and then the 2 clips at the bottom....which I broke one of. I did, however, find that the headlights were much easier to remove/install than I expected after all I had read about how difficult they are.

    Roll Tide!!!

    I change out my grill twice a year as I remove my color matched in the winter and install a chrome to avoid rock chips. All I ever do is remove the 2 top screws, 2 top clips, and then lift the grill off the truck. Never ever had a problem and am after doing this multiple times over the past few years??

    Maybe something was changed mid production?

    I changed my grill to a 2011 and while doing it , I roughed them up a bit. they work fine, but I wanted to see if someone knew the part # for the 2 TOP plastic clips, just to have them on hand. Plastic in Arizona takes extreme abuse (probably the the cold in Ontario)... If anyone has that part # , it would be great.

    Thanks -Azbackcountry
