How to Attach a Billet Grille in a Few Simple Steps

By Mike Cote - December 8, 2018

Lately, you’ve noticed that your vehicle has started to fade into the pack, rather than stand out from it. Regain the spark you think it’s lost by investing in a brand-new billet grille. Whether you’re cruising down backcountry roads or exploring the big city, billet grilles deliver a distinct, personalized look that truly sets you apart.

There’s already an article on our site that you should check out, but once your choice is made, where do you turn? Here, we’ll walk you through the installation process, which can be completed in just four simple steps.

Choosing the right billet style

Installing a custom billet grille is simple and takes very little time. But, before you can begin, you need to choose a style that fits your personality — maybe a mesh grille. You may opt for a black billet grille, or add extra sizzle with a chrome billet grille. And, for even more customization, look to our selection of custom grille emblems, like Street Scene Billet Chevy Bowties or T-Rex X-Metal Studded Baja Bars.

Before you make your decision, though, take a look at the customer reviews on our site. Customer reviews make it easy for you to compare brands, like RBP and T-Rex. Or, you can search for a specific product, like the Carriage Works Bumper Grille. You can even do a vehicle-specific search to see which Nissan Titan grilles, for example, look best, or which truck grills are the easiest to install.

The installation process

Remove your stock grille parts. Begin by disconnecting the battery from the electrical system and remove any protective covers that may be in the way. To protect against short circuits, it’s a good idea to remove the battery cable from its power source.

Cut out any old grille parts that may need to be cut using a handheld cutting grinder. Use this grinder to smooth out the rough edges.

Using the included attachments brackets or fasteners, attach the billet grille into the opening. The grips should be tightened to the grille frame with self-tapping screws or rivets.

Replace the front clip and protective coverings around the radiator and headlamps of your vehicle. Tighten and secure each piece.


Installing a billet grille can be a quick and effective way to give your vehicle a customized look. By choosing the right style and following the simple installation steps outlined above, you can enhance the appearance of your vehicle and make it stand out from the crowd. So, whether you're going for a mesh grille, black billet grille, or chrome billet grille, take the time to pick the one that suits your personality and enjoy the transformation of your vehicle's front end.
