Default Billet Grille Insert

So I found this grille that said it would fit on my sport, and it also says no cutting is required... Has anyone used this or tried it because I'm wondering how it's installed, like does it just snap on or such?

It takes the place of your OE grille. Several members have done this mod.

I went with the T-Rex, which DOES require cutting. Does this one let you keep the grille surround?

I wish there was a video for this one, it says it doesn't require cutting, but I don't know how it goes on.

Yeah I was thinking so. It looks exactly like the TRex one. OP, all you do is cut the middle out of your grille surround with a die grinder or a dremel or whatever you have, and then drill some holes and this one mounts inside the outer edge of your current grille surround.

Yeah, but I don't want to cut my grill up, thats why I eanna know how this one goes on, if I could just find one that snaps on or you swap the grill.

I had to buy an 05 grill off eBay ($40) it has the removable insert. I popped it out and mounted my billet. I have a 2011....06+ grills are one piece. Don't cut the stock grill!!

I told you, buy an 05 grill. The middle is an insert into an outer shell...pop out the insert, mount billet in shell...no cutting of stock grill
