Review & Install Video
Hey what's going on guys? Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you a detailed review of the T-REX Torch Series Upper Grill with 30-inch LED Light Bar in black, fitting all 2015 and newer F-150s. In this video, I'll be going over the functionality and styling you can expect out of the torch series upper grill I have here with the LED light bar, as well as the materials and construction. Toward the end the video, I'll take you through the installation which I'll tell you upfront will get a two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, simply because it does require a little bit of custom wiring, even though it doesn't require any drilling or modification itself.
So, let's jump right into it. The T-REX torch series upper grill with the LED light bar in black, is gonna be for the 2015 or newer F-150 owner out there looking to pick up a very aggressive appearance for their front end, while also picking up an accent lighting that will light up the entire trail or job site. The T-REX upper grill I have with me today is definitely gonna be one that stands out from the other options on the market, and it obviously will be reflected in the price, which I'll touch on it just a bit. This one offers a diamond wire mesh pattern bordered by stainless steel rivets for accent and styling, as well as a 30-inch long LED light bar with high powered lights inside, flood and spot beam styling to light up the entire off-road trail. So, the grill itself offers that mesh pattern design that some people love, some people hate. I myself think that this one is a very aggressive appearance for the front end of F-150s. I think I would pick it up myself if I did own one of those trucks, but unfortunately, I'm not one of those lucky owners.
Now, with the grill itself, it does offer the four diamond shapes per square inch as well as the X-metal studs all around the perimeter, and the metal X logo embedded into the materials here. This one is gonna be a complete replacement for your factory upper grill, so expect to have to remove the entire thing to get this one installed properly. Now, the LED light bar is 30 inches long and offers those flood and spot beam patterns that are very high quality, very bright LED lighting that is sure to illuminate your job site or off road adventures and then some. Now with that said, this one is going to be considered straight for off-road use only, and will not be street legal in most areas, but of course you wanna check with your local laws and regulations about the extra lighting fixtures just to be safe.
Now, as far as materials and construction goes here, expect all OEM CAD data used directly from Ford to ensure a perfect fit on the front end of your F-150. Manufactured using a 304 stainless steel of course for strength, all using 12 gauge diamond wire mesh, fine woven patterns here, for durability, long lasting use and of course that black powder coated finish for corrosion resistance.
Now, moving along to the pricing aspect of this product from T-REX. You can expect a whopping $1,500 price tag. Now of course, that one is a very expensive price tag, one of the most expensive on the market today for your F-150. Now with that said, you do wanna keep in mind you're getting top notch materials directly from T-REX, who typically offer some really good products for the front end of your F-150 and exterior appearance all around. And with that said, it also comes with that 30-inch LED light bar already pre-installed into the front upper grill. And of course, that adds a lot of bang for your buck here. This one is gonna be catering toward the guys out there willing to spend the extra money to get the extra visibility on the job site, and of course, hitting the extreme off-roading trails.
Now, shifting gears over to the installation portion of the video. Like I said in the beginning, this one does require some custom wiring to get the LED bar installed. Now, it is recommended to wire it into a custom switch to have its own on and off, but then again, it's all up to you if you wanna wire it into your fog lights. You do wanna keep in mind while you're doing the wiring, this one is intended for off road use, so you don't really want it coming on with your daytime running lights. Now with that said, if it wasn't for the LED bar, I would give this a one of the three wrenches because the grill itself is very simple to install. Because the wiring is involved, I'll be giving it that two out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, and I'd say about two hours worth of time in the drive way at home to get it on.
Well guys, just to wrap things up here if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer F-150 and you're willing to spend the extra money on a very high quality front upper grill with some accent lighting to light up your off-roading adventures and your job site, you might wanna check out the T-REX torch series upper grill with a 30-inch LED light bar in black, available right here at americanmuscle.com.
