    Did it come with a hardware kit or just the grills.Had a T-Rex grill I installed on my murano and it bolted on with a screws in in front with a clips on back.
    Hows the looks and quality on the grill.Was thinking about picking up some billet grills.Saw that on E Bay too.

    If you bought it off eBay don't expect the greatest fit. I made the mistake of buying one off eBay and it didn't fit flush.

    crap bolted and welded together....
    i do. I have one just like that. If its not a bolt over do as i did.

    remove grill assem.

    then cut out the inner main bars of the grill with a dremel or what not.

    test fit grille so you know where needs to be trimmed on the black plastic part of the factory grill

    once your happy with the fitment, mark and drill the holes for the mounting tabs of the grille.

    then install on truck

    and smile!!
