From SEMA. I thought there'd be some performance mods but the new Ranger Raptor looking grille is nice. Frank @Stage3Motorsports I beat you to your own video. 😜 :giggle:

Two years too late...
I know what took so long for a very popular mod? At least some of the newbs who want one won't get bloody knuckles now since this should fit better. lol

I'm sorry but that official Ford grill looks more Chinese than the Chinese raptor copies.

I'm assuming that lame border around the letters was a molding/injection point for a lazy design to support said letters.

As someone who had a raptor clone grill, but went back to stock, I think the factory "snouts" on our grill are a unique visual for our truck. I get it the Mustang had it first, but still.

I think the raptor grilles are over done. Every red neck around our house with an F150 has one.

My factory XLT grill looks better, to me, then any of the faptor grills.

Yup. Only change I did was remove the trim piece and paint it satin black to match the rest of my blacked out stuff.

I do like the XLT grille and gauge cluster a lot more than my Lariat one.

not keen on it myself.
it fits a certain look with a specific style, on their demo model it looks good.

on my stock truck....not so much. Lipstick on a pig comes to mind.

I'm curious about the tremor grill they mention though.
I do like the color addition those little snot rockets add.
Maybe if it blows (pun intended) the look out of the water, I'll do a lift kit, some serious offsets, and a TG damper for the HP increase.
