    Bought another stock grille.. this is my 3rd grille being put on my truck so im pretty experienced with it. but i just got it colormatched and the damn thing will NOT go on the truck. the side clips on the bottom of the grille; only one side will go in at a time. if i un-do one side, the other side will go in. this is infuriating. any advice?

    Try spraying a little wd40 into where the clip goes, a little lube usually helps. Also make sure your not tilting it too much. Good luck!

    The rubber lining on the top of the grille was too thick and wouldnt let the grille close, its on now.
