Default Changing Billet Grill

I have the stock one on my ranger and I noticed it had some of the "chrome" flaking off. I was curious on the difficulty of changing the billet grill and where you would buy one.

Well i have the stock "grill." I want to change it out for something else. That is why. What would be the first step in replacing it?

Not sure on your ranger but on mine (1997 Ranger) There's six or eight screws under the hood holding the grille in from above and that's it, my best sugestion is to gently tug on the grille and see where it's not moving, and that's where the screws should be.
