    Well im about to start doing a lot of stuff to my truck as i get money. Tomorrow i plan on order a grill assembly and color match it and then replace middle area with a billet grille. I was wondering how do you open your hood with after market grille? You cant put your fingers in above the emblem! haha

    You can't lift the hood and press the upper lever on your truck to release the catch?
