More grill questions...!

3609 Views 21 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  jonas1022
I saw Jonas' post recently about grills on his '08 Tribute and somebody answered with an eBay mesh grill that I think looks really cool, but I can't find anything like that for my '05 Tribute.
Anybody want to help out? Or do they not even exist? :lol:

The problem with the 1st gen tribute's is that the grille is attached to the bumper, it is one piece, the only part that comes off is the colour matched strips that line the grille. There is only one aftermarket option I know of for our tributes, and that is a lund billet cover that just lies on top of the grille. BUT IMO it's a weird look, does not match the style of the truck. I'm in the middle of making my own grille and to be honest this is your best bet, as other has done on here as well you need to cut the tabs that connect your grille to your bumper and then add in your own insert (mine is pressed mesh powder coated black) then you must re attact it I rigged up a new brace so I think it may be more stable than the stock set up. Hope that helps
true.... I forgot you guys have different bumpers lol, but hey don't count yourself out, it's not too hard... but if the tribute must go.... lol oh well
This is the only one I have seen so far... ... ccessories
No problem, I have to agree the tribute is somewhat thirsty... but I don't think I could part ways just yet lol
