    I've been learning tons of new things by searching around in the topics.. but one thing I'm confused about is when the stock grill is replaced with mesh or billet or whatever you replace it with, how do you operate the hood latch?! :confused: Maybe I could get a link to a thread that has the information or someone could post a reply. I'm just curious and eager to learn so either way the info would be very helpful thanks!

    What he said, if you pop the hood from inside the cab and look over the top of the grill from the outside, you can see the second lever. Not an inconvienience at all.

    I usually pop the hood, then squeeze my hand in the gap between the hood and the top of the grille then just go from there. It's no big deal but I have decently small hands so that may or may not work for you.
