Review & Install Video

If you're the owner of a 2015 or newer F-150 and you're a fan of the factory grille but you wanna give it a sweet aftermarket twist to make it stand out a bit more, you might be interested in checking out the Modern Billet 6 Piece Polished Billet Grille Overlay. These grille overlays offer a classic horizontal bar styling designed to accommodate those factory H styled bars and they even work around the factory Ford emblem without requiring any modifications. One of the keywords I wanna point out is overlay. This kit offers six individual pieces you see here that fit between the factory horizontal bars and utilize the vertical H bars behind them in order to mount. Meaning they won't completely replace. They'll just cover our overlay. Each piece is 4 millimeters thick and they were designed using the original OEM CAD data from Ford to make sure they were a perfect fit. They are constructed out of a durable, yet light-weight billet aluminum completed in a polished finish, just to stand out a little bit more to add that bright stand out styling. There are a few other options on the market as far as grilles and overlays go, ranging anywhere from 130 bucks to 250. This particular kit from Modern Billet is gonna fall at the top end of the spectrum at around 250 bucks, most likely due to the fact it's got a nice construction and because of the polished finish. The installation is a very straightforward process. I'm giving this one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Now everything you need to get the job done, all the hardware required for the job is included in the kit, making it a simple bolt-on upgrade that requires very few simple hand tools like a ratchet and a socket set. You wanna have a 10 millimeter and an 8 millimeter socket on deck as well as a flathead screwdriver. You wanna start by removing the radiator cover that's held on by a couple of plastic push pins. It might be easier to use a flathead screwdriver just to pry these off. From here, you'll need to use a ratchet and 10 millimeter socket to remove a few bolts in order to completely remove the top radiator cover. Before we go any further, you'll definitely wanna make sure you unplug the two hood latch harness clips before you remove the grille assembly from the body. They're gonna be those two plugs running right next to your hood latch connecting to the inside of the grille. That way you don't rip the wiring out from the housing when you remove your factory stock. Now the reason you have to remove the entire factory grille is so you can attach these to the back. Now this next step may not be for everybody. If your F-150 has fender flares installed, you may need to remove a bolt or two in order to get the fender flares to the headlight panel off. If you do not have fender flares, then you should be able to just pop the plastic body panels off right around the headlights. Inside these panels, you also see maybe four bolts or so. The one closest to the grille will need to be removed using an 8 millimeter socket. From here, you should be able to lift the grille assembly away from the vehicle and place it aside. There're four pins holding the backing for the factory grille and plates. You can pull these out using a pair of pliers or you can lift up the factory grille back in to gain access to the grilles. You can start by putting the grille assembly on its back with the face and grille emblem facing up. You can place the top grille overlay from this kit of the top row of the grille using the supplied bolt and place it through the pre-drilled holes and use the supplied bracket and not on the inside to tighten it down. Repeat this for each of the six pieces and you'll be good to go once you have everything back together in the reverse order. When you're getting the assembly back on the vehicle, you wanna remember to plug the hood latch harness in or you'll be left with a hood latch light on your dashboard. For the fender flare, guys, remember to tighten on the bolts on the fender flares right after getting the headlight panels back into place. When everything is set and done, you'll be looking at spending about an hour or so in the driveway at home getting this installed. I'd definitely give it one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter because it's something anybody can do with just a little bit of time at home. If you're the owner of a 2015 or newer F-150, you might wanna check out the Modern Billet 6 Piece Polished Billet Grille Overlay which you can find right here at americantrucks.com.

  • The 6 Piece Billet Upper Grille Overlay does include instructions for installation. We just do not have the instruction guide posted on our website. This item is rated as a simple installation for anyone, but if you are concerned about the installation I would recommend having this item installed by a shop.

    Great addition!

    I really like the way my truck looks with this grill overlay installed. My truck is white and has the black grill, and I wanted a little chrome. Installing was a challenge because you have to entirely remove the original grill. In order to do that, you have to disassemble the front end of the truck. I had to pop off the fender flares so that I could remove the trim around the headlights, and that made me nervous because I wasn't sure if I was going to break my flares in the process. But I was happy that nothing broke and when it came time to put it all together, I was able to do it with no problems. Overall very satisfied!!!

    Oh boy..... This install was a nightmare. Installing the actual grill inlays weren't that hard. Getting the grill/shutters out and off the truck wasn't that hard to perform the main install. It's the reinstalling of the shutters onto the grill after you've installed your new grill inlays. Ford loves to use plastic securing "nuts" that don't stay in place when trying to reinstall the opening and closing shutters behind the actual grill. If you buy this mod for your truck, you will ultimately be happy in the end. I gave this mod a 4 star simply because one of my grill inlays were a little bent from the manufacturer. The finish was perfect. And the bend is barely noticeable. Still LOVE American muscle. They're an awesome company and I do highly recommend them!

    Very stylish

    I was very excited to put this ad-on to my brand new 2017 Ford F150. It has definitely added quite a bit of style to the front end that was very plain in its original format. The billet grille fit relatively OK for the most part. The tightest fit ere the two pieces on the left and right of the emblem. Was a little tricky to put on because of the many brackets since they're so many inserts. It took me longer (2hrs) than the instructional video said it would bc I was being careful not to scratch anything. Also, making sure the grill was level and balanced throughout took some time and finesse. Could've used an extra set of hands to do so. Overall it's an easy install even for a beginner like me. I was a little disappointed by the black finish on the inside of the billet grill which looked like it was already chipping straight out of the box. It's very unnoticeable unless you're up close. I'm still satisfied with the purchase and pricing.

    Looks Great!

    Love the looks. Was a PIA to install, had to grind down some of the corners to make it lay flush and a few of the billets were bent from the factory. Overall very please with my purchase.

    Cool Add On!

    Grill overlay is very cool and looks good, this isn't a cheap plastic thing you just tape on. Be prepared, you've got to take the grill off and take a good portion of your front end apart to get it off. Once off, getting it attached isn't difficult, it just takes the right tools and a little time. Looks great though and in the end, that's what matters!

    Top piece looks different

    Be forewarned the top piece is different meaning the discs inbetween the guns is greater and in these polished find it's very noticeable. They would've been better off keeping the spacing the same as the others and just leaving more space above and below the fins. They're also very difficult to get all the inserts to align visually, not the greatest design.
