Hey, what's going on, guys? Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a detailed review of the Barricade Raptor Style Grille with LED lighting fitting all 2015 and newer F-150s. So in this video, I'll be going over everything you need to know as far as functionality and styling for the Raptor Style Grille from Barricade with the LED lighting as well as the materials and construction, I'll even take you through the installation, which I'll tell you upfront will get a solid one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. But full disclosure, this one will require a little bit of splicing, not a terrible job but if you're not comfortable with it, I wanna let you know up front. So let's jump right into it.The Barricade Raptor Style Grille with LED lighting is gonna be for all 2015 and newer F-150 owners out there looking to capture the aggressive styling of one of the toughest beasts on the market as far as trucks go, the Ford Raptor, by capturing one of the upper grille stylings from that 2017 SVT Raptor on your own F-150. Now we all know the Ford Raptor is one tough beast. It's definitely considered one of the toughest and most aggressive F-150s and trucks in general on the market today, especially that 2017 SVT Raptor which is yet to be released by the time of this video.Now with that in mind, you can pick up this upper grille from Barricade to capture that styling of the 2017 SVT Raptor for your own F-150 by transforming that stock boring upper grille with something little bit more aggressive, and it even comes with some accent lighting in the amber color for some added visibility and styling.One of the good things about Barricade is always a durable construction. With this particular product you can always expect an OEM quality material, here with an ABS plastic something in the automotive world as known to be great for on and off-road use, strong, durable, and long lasting. It was all finished in a dark charcoal powder coating to give it that aggressive look to match all the exterior trim you may already have on your vehicle today.Now, in addition to that SVT Raptor styling, expect three high-powered amber colored LEDs that are mounted high on your grille here. These will all work in conjunction with your daytime running lights and will splice directly into your headlight harness, something that isn't too hard to do, but it will add that extra step.With this grille here with the Raptor styling and the LED lighting, expect to be spending just about 350 bucks, not too bad of a price tag. Overall, you're getting the aggressive styling of the 2017 SVT Raptor which has yet to be released to the market at the time of this video. But, of course, you're getting durable construction and a pretty simple installation, it does require a little bit of splicing, but I'll explain that in just a second. Now, with that installation, again, it will require that little bit of splicing. I am, however, still gonna give it a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter because you can get this done in about an hour's worth of time in the driveway at home with a simple ratchet and socket set.Just to jump right into it, you'll be removing your factory upper grille and setting that aside as well as the factory hardware because new hardware is provided for you in the kit. You'll be picking up your Raptor style grille from Barricade, bolting it into place using that new hardware, and then taking the quick splice connectors, splicing your power and ground cables into the headlight harness to get that running as well. When everything is said and done, you'll be spending about an hour or so on the installation, definitely giving this one a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter.Well, just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer F-150 and you're looking for an affordable way to pick up that 2017 SVT Raptor styling for the front end of your F-150, you might wanna check out the Barricade Raptor-style front upper grille with the LED lighting, available right here at americanmuscle.com.

Poor Quality LED
Moisture got into the center led and it failed. It is very irritating every time I look at it. Luckily it was the center led, so it is symmetrical. Where do i find a replacement?Helpful (5)

Absolutely worth it!
The grille looks incredible on my platinum. I have a front facing camera and a simple mod is all you need. Camera works perfectly and the grille is my favorite part of my truck now.Helpful (2)

The grille is a very high quality product from the aftermarket. I'm really impressed. Fitment is perfect. No unsightly gaps. Materials are thick and strong. Paint is even and a very close match to factory grey. I receive a LOT of positive comments about this grille and if you own a sport or FX4 model, it fools a lot of the uninitiated into thinking you own a Raptor. Which is why we like it, right? I love this grille and would purchase it again in a heartbeat. Watch a YouTube video on how to install it.Helpful (1)

I love my new grille, it’s starting to look more and more how I want it. It did take a few hours with just two people, but it wasn’t an awful process. I think it gives my truck a nice touch, it evens out all the chrome on it. I ordered the letters on eBay for about $10, but I have yet to put them on. Good quality, decent installation, and a wonderful look. Definitely a must buy for raptor fans!Helpful (1)

LED Lights Don’t Match
Grill takes no time to install. Grill is made of heavy duty material and seems like it will last a good while. Once I finished the install and spliced the wiring into one of my parking lights I found out that my 3 Amber LED lights don’t match. The color is off in one of them. 2 of the 3 are Amber like it’s advertised but one is yellow. Not too happy about it. Looking to hopefully swap a replacement in for this one with AmericanTrucks.Helpful (7)
What is the difference between this and the V2 version?
This version has bolts on the back of the letters so they can be removed if needed, while the V2 does not.
I'm confused but does this grill say FORD or does it just have the big loops across it?
This grille does not have "ford" spelled across the front but does provide a very similar style without using the trademarked name from Ford Motor Company. These are oval patterns across the front which mimic the Ford Raptor style grille.
Why do some of your customer photos of this grill show "FORD" letters on the grill and some do not; how can you order the one with the "FORD" lettering.
Hello! Some of our customers have modified their Barricade Raptor Style Grille to say Ford. However, these are only sold as shown in our photos.
Do you sell the Ford letters that can be added to this grill?
Unfortunately, we do not sell the letters that are compatible with this Raptor Style grille.
Do the letters unbolt so I can replace the f and r?
The letters on this grille do have screws on the back which would enable them to be removed and replaced if needed.
At this time we do not offer the Amber LED lighting from the Barricade Raptor Style Upper Replacement Grille separate from the grille.
This would not work with the active shutters.
Unfortunately we do not currently offer a version of the Raptor style grille that is compatible with the front facing camera.
The will only come in the OE-style Dark Charcoal Textured Finish. However, any professional autobody/paint shop or yourself with expereince should be able to take this grille and finish it in a black finish for you if desired.
This kit will include an installation guide.
No, this will only fit 15-17 F150s.
This would be specific to the 15-17 F-150s, it would not work on the 2019 model.
We do apologize you are having this issue with your Barricade Upper Replacement Grille w/ LED Lighting. Please contact our customer service department so that we may directly assist you with this issue. Our contact information can be found here: https://www.americantrucks.com/contact.html.
Barricade manufactures their Raptor Style grille from the OEM quality acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) material.
We recommend splicing these into the parking lights.
