Review & Install Video
Hey, guys, Alex from americanmuscle.com, and today I'm bringing you my quick review and breakdown of the billet upper grille replacement in polished, fitting your 2015 through current F-150. So, in this video, I'm gonna talk about who this might appeal to, the construction and materials that went into this grille I've got in front of me today, what you should expect to be spending, and then last but not least, what it's gonna take to get this onto your truck, which is gonna be one of my favorite aspects about this as there's not gonna be any type of cutting or modification to your brand new truck, but we'll talk about that a little bit later. But, you're gonna be expecting an easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and about an hour to get this onto your truck.
So, if you're the 2015 and newer F-150 owner and you're not too thrilled with just how aggressive the front end of you truck looks, I would definitely suggest checking out this grille as it's gonna give you a very custom yet subtle look for the front end of your truck. So, right off the bat, I do wanna say that this is gonna be geared towards somebody that's gonna be looking for more chrome or polished accents for their F-150. Now, while I can personally go either way, I do have a tendency to shoot for black parts for my truck as I have a black truck, but if you're gonna be looking for something that's gonna be more on the smoked or subtle side, definitely check out some of the options we have on site as we've got a ton of black replacement grilles for you.
So, taking a quick look at the construction here, we're gonna see that this is primarily manufactured from a billet aluminum construction. It's gonna feature a little bit of black accents through the sills here, but this is going to then be polished to a pretty bright shine. Now, I know it's gonna be a little tough to get an idea how it looks here right in the studio, but if you're gonna be looking to incorporating a bunch of custom, as well as a polished high-shine look to the front end of your truck, this is gonna be the perfect grille for you. But, again, depending on your taste and where you're gonna be taking your build, we do have some other options on site if you're gonna be looking for a little bit more of a black look.
Furthermore, I do wanna mention that this is definitely gonna be a very strong product that's gonna help protect the front end of your investment, but if you're gonna be doing a ton of off-roading, I might suggest checking out a bull bar or a full-face brush guard as it's gonna offer a maximum amount of protection. Additionally, this is gonna be tough, so that you're not gonna have to worry about any type of corrosion down the road. I do, also, wanna mention that if your F-150 did come equipped with a forward-facing camera, this is not gonna be compatible, but we do have a bunch of other options on the site for you.
So, one last thing that I do wanna mention is that the construction here is gonna be a very straight-through design, as you can see. For you, that's gonna mean you're gonna be channeling more air under your hood, so if you have a cold-air intake, it's gonna benefit slightly from it, but primarily, you're gonna be feeding your radiator with much cooler air. Don't get me wrong, at the end of the day, this is not a Mustang, but any little bit is gonna help make your truck run that much more effectively.
Taking a quick look at the pricing here, guys, you should expect to be spending right around 170 bucks for this upper replacement grille, which, at the end of the day, is definitely a steal, but you need to take into consideration that this is gonna be comprised out of billet aluminum. This is not typically something you're gonna find with some of the higher end grilles out there, like PUTCO or T-Rex, which are gonna be a little bit more on the sturdier side. So, if you're gonna be looking for something that's gonna be on the more inexpensive side that's sure to turn heads, I would definitely suggest checking out this grille for your truck.
So, in terms of the installation here, just like I had said in the beginning of the video, you're gonna be looking at an incredibly easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, probably about an hour to get this onto your F-150. Now, the installation alone here is gonna be definitely a massive selling point for me as there's not gonna be any type of cutting or modification required for your truck. It's gonna install simply by removing some of the exterior hardware from the factory underneath your hood, and simply replace, and then reinstall with some of the provided hardware.
All right, so just to wrap things up here are some final thoughts. If you're the F-150 owner that's looking to incorporate a ton of shine, as well as a custom truck look to the front end of your F-150, I would definitely suggest checking out this option for you. But, again, if you're gonna be looking for something that's gonna be more on the dark and subtle side, check out some of the options that we have on the website.
So, that's my quick review and breakdown for the billet upper replacement grille in polished, fitting your 2015 through current F-150, available right here at americanmuscle.com.
