Welllll let me first start off by saying I've been doing research for a good while on grille inserts such as the RBP grille and the Royalty Core grille, and the price was just ridiculous. So I heard talk about an Ebay grille that costed just under $200 ($190 to be exact) and it seemed like a good idea! I did reasech and other people had bought the same exact grille and loved it. By the way here is the link to the exact grille I bought, http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fits-2009-20...-/350792291183
, the company name is Grille4You. Anyways, I gave in and bought it, and got it in the mail today! It looked sooooo good and it was already powdercoated and the quality was solid. So I took my grille off my 2012 1500 express, and took off the front emblem. I put the grille on and it does not sit correctly on there! The cross on the grille is blocking it (at least thats what it seems). But the ebay description AND the instructions say its a layover insert, no cutting or drilling required. So i guess I realize the only way to get this thing to fit now is to cut the cross. Which I'm okay with because in my opinion it would look odd since you can still see the cross through the mesh. But will it still fit if i cut the cross, the reason i say that is it was most likely fitted to fit over the stock grille, Im afraid if i cut the cross out it will "fall in" and not sit on top. (if that makes since) I have some pictures of everything below. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED!
This is my stock grille and the Ebay grille side to side
Grille placed on top of stock grille
As you can see it does not sit right on top, The top cross is interring
notice where it says "Install Notes" it says Overlay
I really hope y'all could help me resolve this! Thanks soo much!
PS. I found this a while back but can't recall where, but this guy seemed to install the grille without cutting the cross
