Question 2006 Grille Mod - Honeycomb Inserts

Hi all,

I am currently interested in modifying my 06 Ranger XLT's H-style chrome grille to add honeycomb in the 4 openings in the center of the grille, surrounding the Ford emblem.

Like its 06 F-150 STX counterpart, it has the honeycomb in the open areas of the H-style grille, whereas on the Rangers, Ford left the center wide open.

My goal is to make it so it would look as though it was original to the truck's grille. Any advice would help, as I can't seem to find a decent source for just buying the honeycomb. Plastic would be the preference.

I've thought about trying to get a cheap F-150 STX grille, removing the center inserts, and modifying the fit for the Ranger's smaller grille. Sadly, you can't just buy the inserts and no company makes a grille insert besides the 'billet' style.

Thanks guys,

Corey

if you are dead set on honeycomb I can see 2 options for you.

1. Switch out for a 04-05 honeycomb grille. Like below.


2. Or get said 04-05 honeycomb grille and use the honeycomb from it to somehow mold into your 06.

I thought that might be the option and I'd love to see if anyone is selling them cheap here. I'd rather mold it into mine since I like the H-bar grille. I'm hoping the honeycomb in the middle has similar dimensions to that of the 06+ grille. I don't need much, just enough to fill the 4 long slots.

I may still have my honeycomb. It will be just the insert though

If it's just the center insert off of the 04-05 grille, I would definitely buy it from you if you were willing to sell.
