Default grill removal

I'm trying to remove my grill to switch to black honeycomb but got stuck. I've removed the four top bolts and released two plastic clips at the bottom near the center of the grille and it won't budge. there are two plastic clips at either lower corner and I've tried to release those also, still won't come out. Is there something I'm missing or am I just being to gentle so I don't break something? I can't see anything else holding it in. Posts I've seen say that it comes right out but gives no details on the steps needed to remove it. I tried a search but couldn't come up with anything. Any help would be great!! Thanks

I just posted an add in my local classified (Kijjii) and had a few replies within a week or two. Guy came over and we swapped them out in my driveway and both trucks looked better.

Posting to ZIPPO973, I guess I can't PM you cause I don't have enough posts yet. To answer your question, Im replacing the chrome horizontal bars. Sorry I can't help you out.

Well the grille change is done. I know I'm going against the flow here but I'm old school and I like a little chrome on my truck. Plus, I really prefer the black honeycomb over the bars. I'll keep the original equipment just in case I have a change of heart in the future. I'll try to upload pics of the changes.
