Team Trails Edition Black Grill Swap

 

 
Another EASY upgrade, almost as easy as the Team Trails Black Door Handles Swap.  I was actually pretty surprised at how easy the grill comes out and re-installs.  A "one beer job".  The only tools I needed was a large Phillips head screw driver, regular screw driver or putty knife and about 15 minutes of my spare time.  The new OEM grill was not expensive at under $200 shipped.  The big plus to this grill over the idea of painting the silver OEM grill black is that this grill is molded black all the way through.  That means it won't chip or fade like paint will and it has a cool semi-gloss appearance that is molded that way.

Installing the Team Trails Edition Black Grill
  

  1. The first order of business is to remove the original grill.  Open the hood and locate the two screws and the two black plastic rivet-like fasteners.

  1. The Screws are holding the two long grill tabs to the radiator cradle.  Remove these two screws.
  1. Now on the far end of both sides of the grill are two black rivet-like fasteners.  Get your putty knife or small screw driver under the round part of this fastener and pop it up.  Hang onto these screws and fasteners.

  1. Next gently pull the top of the grill a few inches towards you, away from the radiator.  Two spring loaded clips will pop out.  They are located behind the face of the grill, just inset to the headlights.
  1. Next, look down behind the grill at the three plastic rivets that are holding the bottom of the grill in.  There are two on each end and one in the center.
  1. Get a long flathead screw driver between the support and the grill and pry the rivet off of the support bracket.
  1. Once you get all three rivets dislodged, the grill will come right out.
  1. Now, it's just a matter of reversing the steps. 

    A) Put the bottom three rivets in.

    B) Press the spring loaded clips back in

    C) Re-install the screws and rivets.

That's it!  Another easy install.
