Default Honeycombed grill in a sport

I was thing of changing the grill in my sport to a honeycombed style and adding a r/t badge. Are these just inserts? Or would I need the hole grill?

I couldn't find just the inserts, so I purchased the R/T grill and took them off.

I'm sure they will start selling the inserts at some point but my impatience got the best of me...no regrets, love the honeycomb look.

The only benefit to the entire grill purchase was it includes those little pop-in clips/push pins that will almost certainly break when you remove the grill.

I took the unpainted grill and chrome inserts and stuck them in the attic - probably sell the chrome slate inserts to someone or list the parts in the classifieds here.

Do you have to pull out the whole grille or can you just remove the inserts off the back and put on the new ones?

I swapped the horizontal chrome for honeycomb on my 10 with no problems. You have to take the whole grill off to swap the inserts. Never broke any clips, you just need to take your time. Not sure if the 13's are the same.

The grill on the 2013 is a different size so you have to ensure you're getting 2013+ parts.

You have to remove the entire grill. There are deflectors on the back to remove that overlay the inserts. There's no way you could replace the inserts without removing the grill. Take you time and study how the clips work when you remove the inserts. Putting it all back together takes 15 minutes...getting it all apart was about an hour for my first time.

I did the same on my '10. I have a '13 on order and want to do the same thing and was wondering about the new grille.

I think I would have liked it more if the slats were recessed. I was going to paint them black but I figured now I have some options to experiment with.

I'm thinking about pulling the honeycombs and painting them a dark slate...just enough contrast to notice but not like the chrome.

How much is the honey comb grill for a 13? I want to swap my 13 Laramie grill for the longhorn honeycomb.
