Hey, I did trim a little plastic off the back of the 07 grille because at the bottom near the bumper it overlaps onto the lower blinkers just a little bit, and I drilled new mounting holes in the top and used self tapping screws to secure the grille to the aluminum where the old grille was mounted. I also had to trim a little section where the hood release latch is. The clips on the bottom of the new grille missed the old ones by an inch (directly below) I'd like to secure these but for not it's very secure and I love the looks of it!

----------

What I did to my ranger today: swapped out the gorgeous 32s with my pacer rims for the stock 215/75/15s that came on the truck... It looks gay as hell but I switched for a reason it's 0-60 is fast I'll get a time up tonight when I can have a friend time me!

i drilled out the little metal nip that sticks up in the middle of the two bolts that hold the MAF sensor in the housing, you know what i'm talking about? now i can use a regular torx (one without a hole in the center for the metal nip) to get the bastard out. sadly, i didn't have the right torx bit anyway.

There's a how to for it. You gotta spray really far back or else it gets too dark and you can't even see the ford letters.
