Default Laramie grill change

I like chrome but not as much as the grill on the Laramie. I had a "We Owe" from the dealer for a remote start that they were unable to install so I decided to replace the grill with a Long Horn grill. I had the SLT grille on my last 3 trucks so I wanted something different. The grill change can be done in 3 minutes with only a 10 mm wrench and a body fastener removal tool.

Laramie grill


I first had to extract 6 push in body fasteners on the cover over the rad and the grill. 3 on each side,


I had to remove 4 10mm bolts ob the top of the grill under the cover


Here is picture of the old grill and the cover. Remove the 4 top bolts and pull on the bottom of the grill to release 4 push in fasteners and the grill comes off.


Here is a picture of grill shutters in the open position.


And the new grill installed.


Any one needing a complete 2013 Laramie grill assembly with badge I have one I will let go for a reasonable price. Used only 3 weeks

Why couldn't they install the remote start? I had the factory remote start added to my truck.

Only because it has the Enter-N-Go system

Thanks for the post. It gives me confidence to take mine off now and look into getting a grill surround and having it painted in Black Gold. I like my Longhorn Grill inserts the best, but I think I might want to get the grill surround painted in Black Gold.

I assume 2013 grilles do not fit the older models (I have a 2011 sport).

I really like the new sport grill (and lights, and interior... yada, yada, yada...) and I was wondering if:

a. the grilles are interchangable, or
b. someone is coming out with a grill that looks like a 2013 but fits a 2011

Thanks

Interested in the Laramie grill, how much? Also your truck also has the active grill shutters correct?
