Review & Install Video
What's going on, guys? Adam here with americanmuscle.com, and today, I'm bringing you a quick overview of the polished Billet Lower Grille Overlay, fitting all 2015 and newer F-150s.
If you're the owner of a 2015 or newer F-150 and you're looking to make the front end of your truck stand out from the pack without removing the factory lower grille insert, then this polished billet lower grille overlay may be for you. So, this lower billet grille overlay offers a classic styling for the front end of your F-150, while making it a very simple install.
Now, I do want to point out, before we jump into things, that this will require you to drill four small holes in the factory lower grille insert, just to ensure the proper mounting of this one here. Now, if you're not looking to do any modification to your factory lower grille, no matter how simple, then this option may not be for you.
So, this overlay was manufactured using the advanced CAD data directly from Ford to ensure a perfect OEM fit. It was constructed out of a durable lightweight billet aluminum to create these four-millimeter horizontal bars you see here, and it was finished in a bright polished finish to give it that show car appearance.
Now, there definitely are a lot of options as far as lower grille overlays and lower grille direct replacements on the market. The market can range anywhere from the low $100s to about $200. This particular polished billet overlay option is coming in at just a low $100, making it a budget-friendly option for your frontend of your truck. Now, keep in mind that some of the options on the market are overlays, some of them are replacements, and some of them are only specific to certain F-150 models, such as the EcoBoost and the 5.0, so you want to make sure you're picking the one that fits with your vehicle, specifically. This option is a universal option, fitting all '15 and newer F-150s, regardless of the certain model.
So, the installation, as I mentioned before, will be extremely straightforward. It's definitely something you can do in your driveway. Once you pop the factory lower grille insert off, you will be required to drill four small holes. And as you can see in the back of this overlay, there are four pre-drilled spots, so you'll have a template, you'll know exactly where you're drilling. All the hardware is included in the kit for the nuts, bolts and brackets, so once you get the factory lower grille off, you can tighten that all down and pop it right back into the vehicle.
From start to finish in your driveway, you're looking at spending just under an hour for this installation, making it an extremely simple install for anybody to do. I would definitely give it a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, just because anybody can do it if you're willing to do a little bit of drilling to get this mounted up.
Now, if you're thinking about going with this option, it can really change up the frontend of your F-150, especially when paired with a matching upper grille, as well. Now, if you're interested in getting this for your '15 or newer F-150, the polished lower billet grille overlay is available right here at americanmuscle.com.
