    I've got mine piggy backing off a 10a fuse that somebody else used in a different thread.

    How do I keep my fuse box water tight with the new cable running in?

    Just did the same thing that Vutron did. Wired straight to a fuse. Worked perfect

    Man, I'm torn on whether or not the flat is the way to go with the black trucks. That looks good.

    I actually drilled a small hole in the side of the cover and fed the wire through.

    Where is the fuse for the parking lights? I want to tie into that fuse but I don’t know where it is?

    Did you end up leaving your grill on with zip ties of how did you secure it?? Did you leave it with the paint matched surrounding?

    The zip ties were just holding the wires for the lighting, which are now wired not able to be seen. So no zip ties. And I did not match the surrounding to the paint.

    It seems like most of you guys like this grille. Are there any issues with it now that its been about a month since last post? Really contemplating this grille.

    Anybody running one of these on an ‘18? I’m curious if the TSS radar is able to see through the ABS well enough to not have the computer freak out all the time.

    That's my same problem. I love mesh grills but this damn TSS makes finding one a PITA. You can probably cut and mount into these but I don't know how well it would work since it needs to be stabilized.

    I’m not too worried about fabricating something to hold the sensor, just wondering if the sensor is able to see through ABS? I know for sure the metal grills block the radar, how about this type/thickness of plastic?

    About to order one for my 18, but would like to change the led's to white instead of amber, are the led's on the grille a "unique" design that would be hard to duplicate in white?
