    Just wondering on the Grillcrafts (or any replacement grills), do you have to chop the original grill and insert the mesh or do you just get a whole new grill that you bolt on?

    The GrillCraft can be done either way. You can either cut the main grill bars or leave them. Same with other billet type grills. Cut or leave the bars. Just make sure you buy the right ones for what you want to do. I know it does look a lot cleaner if you cut the bars off that way its open behind the grill.;)

    I thought I bought it at Autoanything. I guess I bought it direct from Grillcraft. Enclosed is the link. I have the MX series. Let me know if the link doesn't work.
