Default 2013 - Front Grille

The other day I was parked next to a 2013 Ram, I love the look and styling of the grille has a clean, smooth look.

Does anyone know if the 2013 grille is interchangeable with a 2010?

Judging by the looks of both trucks I'm guessing you'll need to swap front ends

When I bought mine, one of the selling features from the Salesman was the redesigned front grille and how it was mounted - don't know if that means anything

They are not, I have been looking for different inserts for my 2013 and all prior years do not fit. Having had a 2012, it's a different size, sits deeper into the bumper area, etc. I think the biggest problem would be the bumper...I think the mount points look about the same but I cannot confirm that, just memory.

Ditto. look at the bottom corners of the grille, 2010 are squared and the 2013 are beveled. you would at least need the bumper too.

Personally, I prefer the more deeply set grill inserts on my 2012 over the more flush 2013 models.

Thanks everyone I can see by the picture in one of the previous posts that the grille is very much different on the bottom. I didn't notice that with a quick look on the parking lot.
