Justin: The MP Concepts Upper Grille Replacement that we're talking about here today will be a great way for all '21 and newer F-150 owners looking to drastically change up the front-end appearance of their truck while also adding some very cool lighting at the same time. Now, this grille will feature that durable ABS plastic construction, along with your honeycomb backing in bold center bar that does retain the factory blue oval emblem all for right around that mid to high $300 price point.Install according to the site's gonna get a very strong one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, take you, I would say, a couple of hours or so to knock this one out from start to finish. But as always, guys, hang with me for a little bit and we'll walk you through this job later in the video. So, this is one of the most popular grille options for the previous generation F-150s, and I feel as though it will be just like that for the newer trucks as well.That's because something about the combination of kind of that Baja or Raptor styling with that bold center bar and factory blue oval does appeal to all kinds of truck owners out there as it just kind of bridges the gap, if you will, between styles. Now, what do you say we break down some of the details here of the MP Concepts option? And at its core, again, you are getting some of those Raptor vibes, thanks to the basic kind of shape or design of the honeycomb aspect, but more specifically, the three amber running lights that are included with the kit.Of course, where things will differ from those more Raptor-inspired grilles will be this bold center bar running the width of the grille itself here. And again, as you can see, does have a place for your factory or an aftermarket Ford emblem for those of you who like to hang onto that. Now, if for whatever reason you did wanna ditch the Ford emblem, maybe you just wanted a slightly cleaner look, well, you could always check out RedRock's Baja upper style grille. Certainly gonna deliver a very similar vibe. You are still getting that trio of amber lights, but it will leave off the emblem here for, again, a cleaner look.Now, this grille, again, the MP Concepts option has been built from durable abs plastic using OEM Ford CAD data, guys. And that's just going to ensure a very, very good fit, factory-like fit, along with this very sleek, matte black color. But going back to the lighting, again, guys, you are receiving a trio of LED, amber LED running lights, along with the quality harness needed to get everything up and running for the first time.Now when installed correctly, guys, those running lights will illuminate whenever your parking lights or your headlights have been switched on. Certainly gonna contribute to that very popular look, obviously, not just with the Raptors, but a look that has been sweeping the truck aftermarket now as of late. But let's switch gears and get into the install, guys. Site's gonna call this a solid one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Should take you a couple of hours to complete from start to finish factoring in just a little bit of wiring that we mentioned earlier.But now to give you a better idea of just how the grille comes together, how things get wired in, feel free to check out our detailed walkthrough and tool breakdown.Man: Tools required for this install include a ratchet, wire strippers and crimpers, a pair of pliers, a couple of different size clip removal tools, a Phillips head screwdriver, a flat-head screwdriver, an extension, a 7, 8, and 10-millimeter socket, a 3/8 1/4-inch adapter, male spades, T-connectors, scissors, and a test light.What's up, guys? Today, we're gonna be installing an upper grille replacement on our F-150, so let's get right to it. So, first, we have to remove our stock grille. So, to do that, we're gonna pop the hood and remove all of these push clips that are holding in our radiator cover.So, now coming to the front driver's side fender well, we have these two 7-millimeter screws here that hold in our lower trim. I'll take them off with 7-millimeter socket. And now we can do that same thing on the other side. So, now with our two 7-millimeter screws removed from both sides, we can pull back and release all of the tabs that hold in our lower trim piece.Now with our lower trim piece removed, we have access to the two bolts we need to remove on each side of the bottom of the grille. These are gonna be 8 millimeters. So, I'll take an 8-millimeter socket and get these out. Now we can repeat that process on the other side. So, now we can go ahead and remove our four 10-millimeter bolts at the top of our grille holding it in.Now we can go ahead and disconnect our electrical harnesses up top. So, I'm gonna get a clip remover tool in here to pop this clip out. So, now with all of our hardware removed and our harnesses disconnected, we can pull back on the grille to remove it. So, now with our grille off the truck, we have to remove the back half of it. We have two nuts on each side that we have to remove, as well as these push clips up top.Now we can remove all of our tree clips on our bottom portion of the grille. So, now we can remove this little white bracket that's holding in the clip that holds our wiring harness. I'm just gonna get a flathead in here to push back on the tabs. Now we can take a clip removal tool through the hole in the front side and pry this tab up. So, now we have these three remaining tabs that we can use a flathead screwdriver to push in and pop them out.So, now there's gonna be one more bolt in the center valley here. It's gonna be an 8-millimeter. Ours is missing. So, once you remove that, then we can go ahead and lift up on the grille and remove the inner side. Now to remove our emblem, we're gonna have to remove these three 10-millimeter nuts. And now with our three nuts remove, we can remove our emblem.So, now we can go ahead and install our emblem into our new grille. Slide our wires down through. And now if you have the emblem without the camera, they include this piece so you can bolt it onto here and through the backside of the grille. So, now with our emblem installed, we can reuse our factory nuts on the backside. And then we'll tighten those down with our same 10-millimeter socket.Now we can install our LED pods in the top of our grille. So, they are gonna slide in from the back. And then on either side, we're gonna have one of our screws. We'll take a Phillips head screwdriver and get those in. Now we can go ahead and install our side pieces. So, these are gonna lay in just like so. And then we're gonna take our longer Phillips head screws to secure this down.So, now we can install all of the tabs from our stock grille onto our new one. And then we have our blue tabs from the sides. And now we can reinstall our mounting studs. Now we can install our wiring harness for our LEDs. And we're gonna leave some slack on this until we go to fully install it on the truck and then we can zip tie up the excess. So, now we can go ahead and reinstall our shutter assembly. Now keep in mind, you are gonna wanna run these two harnesses out of the top hole, just like the stock was.Now we can reinstall our factory 10-millimeter nuts on our studs. And I'll tighten those down with our 10-millimeter socket. And then we'll do the same thing on this side. And then now we can reinstall our lower splash guard. Now we can reinstall our push clips at the top of our grille. So, for our wiring, you can really set this up however you'd like. What I'm gonna do, so I'm gonna take a spade on each end of these, and then on the car, we're gonna tap into our daytime running light wire with a T-tap, and then spade will just slide right through the top there.So, now we can go ahead and twist the ends of our wires. And then we'll slide our spade connector over the top. And then we can crimp that down with a wire crimper. Then we'll do the same thing for our negative. So, on our grille, we ran our wiring harness towards our driver's side headlight. So, now we're gonna go ahead and pop out our driver's side headlight. We have two 10 millimeters up top and a 10-millimeter down here on the right bottom corner.We'll pull that out and disconnect our electrical harness. And then we'll turn on our daytime running lights, get in there with a test light, and find which wire is for our daytime running lights. And then we'll splice into that one and connect it to our wiring harness. And then we have one push clip up top as well. So, now we can pull our headlight out and disconnect our electrical connectors.So, now that we have the headlight out, I've gone ahead and turned on our daytime running lights, and then we're gonna be using a test light to probe this connection here. So, I'll put it on a ground. And then as soon as this light's up, that's gonna be our power and the other wire will be our ground. So, this blue and white wire is gonna be our positive and the black and white wire's gonna be our negative.Now I'm gonna take a pair of scissors to cut back some of our harness to give us more lead on our wire to work with. So, now we can take our T-taps, we'll run our wire through it, I'll close it up. And then I'm gonna use a pair of choirs just to crimp that down. And then we'll do the same thing on our negative. So, now we can get our new grille roughly into position and connect our electrical harnesses, and then we'll get our headlight back in.So, our red positive wire is gonna go to our blue wire and our negative is gonna go to the black wire. Now we can plug our connectors back in and we'll slide our headlight into place. Now we'll reinstall our push clip and our two 10-millimeter bolts up top. And then we'll reinstall our 10-millimeter nut on the bottom. So, now we can reinstall our two 8-millimeter bolts on each side. Now we can reinstall our lower trim panel. Now we can reinstall our 7-millimeter screws. And we can do that same thing on the other side.Now coming back up top, we can reconnect our electrical harnesses. So, I'll put our clip back in the spot. Now we can reinstall our four 10-millimeter bolts up top. So, now we can reinstall our radiator cover and all the push clips that go with it.So, that'll wrap up this review and install of the MP Concepts Upper Replacement Grille with LED Lighting in Matte Black for your 2021 to current F-150, excluding the Raptor and the Tremor.
