Picked up that one for free at the picknpull, at that price its worth trying to fix it.

It's completely broken! The insert may be ok, but I can get that whole grill assembly for less than $40 free shipping on eBay any day of the week

How were you planning on fixing that, I'm curious

Nhaa its not that bad, only one piece to re attach. Epoxy or fiberglass it in the back not sure yet, plus I need projects while im away from the GF and the dog. Id most likely have to pay shipping of ebay since im in Canada anyway, but if the picknpull has one next time its a different story.

Default Re: Billet Grille Insert

Ive been looking into getting a billet insert for my ranger as well, its a 2011 fx4, I looked at the t-rex inserts, there very sharp looking, but it says its not for the sport model, isnt the fx4 classified as a sport trim? you do have to cut the old grille out, but i dont mind cuz if i ever had to get rid of my ranger i would just leave the insert in it anyway, can anyone help? your input would be apreciated!

When i painted my insert of my honeycomb on my 01 i took my honey comb out, it not hard use a heat gun and small flat head screw driver once the melt a little bit they are usually playable enough to pull the chips out.
