Jake: Jake here for American Trucks. And today I'm taking a look at the RedRock Baja Upper Replacement Grille in Black with the LED lighting fitting 2021 and newer F-150s, excluding Raptor and Tremor models. You can bring a little bit of that aggressive off-road style to your F-150 with this Baja Replacement Grille from RedRock. This is an easy way to change up the look of the front end and bring some additional lighting or a little bit of that Raptor flavor to your own truck, all for an affordable price tag.Styling is of course subjective, but I have to say I'm a fan of the latest Gen F-150, but if you're looking for that little extra something, then this grille from RedRock is going to appeal to you. It features this open honeycomb pattern, sort of reminiscent of Ford's own Raptor or a truck that you might find pulling off jumps out in the desert. There're also these three LED lights at the top of the grille that add that signature off-road look to the front end rather easily, and they integrate with your daytime running lights for seamless functionality. Now, this is a bolt-in replacement for your stock grille too, so you can put this right on without having to modify the truck itself. You even get a provision for the front camera in case your truck is so equipped. And if you're going for that blacked-out theme, well this is going to look right at home on your truck as well since it comes finished in this nice matte black right out of the box. Now, this does also remove the front emblem as you can see, but that just opens up the grille a little bit, so it gives you a little bit of additional airflow into the engine bay as well. You get some function to go along with your form too.Construction here is all high-quality ABS plastic, so it is strong, it's lightweight and it's durable. Now, this black finish does come like this just right out of the box so it's ready to mount. And since this is ABS plastic, you do have the option to get it painted pretty easily. Now, the LEDs are weather sealed against the elements, so they should have a long lifespan too. And since this was designed using OEM CAD data from Ford themselves, this is going to fit right in place of your stock grille just as your original would. And you've got all the clips and tabs and mounting points that you need to get this put right on. No need to modify anything on your truck. Coming in at about $250, this is pretty much the most affordable replacement grille on the market for these trucks. And with the inclusion of that LED lighting, there's no denying that this is a good value. Our customers seem to agree with that too as this one is very highly rated on our site. So make sure you check out what they've got to say too just in case you need that little extra push to buy.Installation gets a one out of three on our difficulty meter and you should plan on spending about two hours to get this done. Definitely, something a DIY-er can handle at home and everything you need comes right in the box. Again, you've got that provision for the front-facing camera. If you have it and you get the wiring harness with the pigtails already ready to go in, you can just plug in those lights and you just got to wire these guys in. So pretty easy to install. Definitely, something you can do at home. And to show you just what's involved let's jump on over to the Install Bay right now.Speaker 2: Tools required for this install include a ratchet, a clip remover tool, wire strippers and crimpers, a pair of scissors or diagonal cutters, an extension, a 7, 8, 10, and 14-millimeter socket, a male spade and T-taps, and a microfiber towel. What's up guys? Today we're installing a grille on our F-150, so let's get started. So our first step is to remove our lower trim. We have two 7-millimeter bolts on each side and then a bunch of clips that we can just pop out to remove it. So now coming to our driver's side fender well, we can remove our two 7-millimeter bolts using a 7-millimeter socket. And then we can do that same thing on the other side. So now with our bolts removed from both sides, we can pop out all of our clips and remove our lower trim. Next, we can come up top and remove all of our push clips that are holding in our radiator cover. We're just using a clip remover tool just to pop all of these out. And then once we have all of our clips removed, we can pop our radiator cover out of the way. Now once we have our radiator cover removed, we can disconnect our three connectors here.This first one, we'll just press that black tab and pull up. Second one, we have a tab on this side and then we can pinch these sides in to pop out our last connector. Next, we can remove these four bolts that hold our grille in up top. So we'll grab a 10-millimeter socket to pop these out. Now coming to the bottom outside of the grille, we have an 8-millimeter bolt on each side that we need to remove. So we'll grab an 8-millimeter socket to take this out and then we can do that same thing on the other side. So now with all of our hardware removed, we can pull straight back on the grille to remove it. So now before we install our new grille, we're going to have to remove our shutter assembly from our stock grille to transfer over. Now we have five push clips up top as well as a bunch of push clips on our lower cover that we need to remove to get this out of the way. So we'll grab a clip remover tool and start popping out our push clips, and then we can pop out all these clips on our lower cover.Next, we can remove our 8-millimeter bolt in our center valley as well as our four 10-millimeter bolts. We got two on each side. So we'll grab an 8-millimeter socket for our bolt in the middle and then we'll switch over to our 10-millimeter socket for our four nuts. So now the last thing we need to do is pop out our clips along the bottom side of our grille and our whole shutter assembly will come out. So I'm just using that same clip remover tool just to push our clip in, pop it out. So now the last thing we want to do is pop out one of our headlights so that we can wire up our lights on our new grille into our daytime running lights. So we have two 10-millimeter bolts and a push clip up top and then 8-millimeter bolt at the bottom that we need to remove and we can pop this out of place. So first we'll remove our 8-millimeter bolt at the bottom using an 8-millimeter socket.So now coming up top, we'll grab a clip remover tool to pop out our clip and then we can grab our 10-millimeter socket for our two bolts. And now we have one more 10-millimeter nut on the bottom corner of our headlight that we have to remove. And now with all of our hardware removed, we can pull straight back on our headlight to pop it out of place. Now we're going to be wiring up our new grille lights off of our daytime running lights. We already have T-taps installed onto these lines, so we'll be installing male spade connectors onto our wiring harness to plug into here. So now before we install our shutter assembly onto our new grille, we're going to do our wiring first since that'll be underneath of our shutter assembly. So we have our harness, we're just going to plug in our three connections. And then on the other side, we're going to crimp down a male spade connector onto our positive and negative wires. So now you can wire these up however you'd like. The way we're going to do it is with a male spade connector and a T-tap. So you'll put the T-tap around your wire and then grab a pair of pliers, just crimp it down. And then our male spade's going to come in through this hole in the back to make our connection.Now, like we mentioned before, we already have the T-taps installed onto our truck, so we just need to crimp our male spade connectors onto our positive and negative. So slide it in and then we can get a wire crimper to crimp that on. So now we can take our wires, we can twist up our lead, and then we'll slide that into our male spade and then we'll get a wire crimper to crimp that down. And then we'll do the same thing for our negative. So now with all of our connectors installed, now we can zip-tie up our wires and run them out. Now we're going to be wiring this into the driver's side headlight. You can wire it however you'd like. But for our application, we're going to be running it out the top here. So we can bunch up all of our excess and then we can zip-tie that up. And then you can use a pair of scissors or diagonal cutters just to chop off the excess of your zip tie. And now once we have our wiring finalized, we can install our shutter assembly. And then we can pop our clips into place across the bottom. Next, we can reinstall our lower cover. So we'll just pop in all of our clips.So now coming back to the top of our grille, we can reinstall our five push clips. So now we can install our clips onto both sides. We can just pop them on just like that. And then we can take our bolts that are included with our grille and start threading them into our U clips. And now once we have our bolts hand tight, we can grab a 14-millimeter socket to tighten these down. And then we can do that same thing on the other side. Now before we install our grille, we're going to pop our headlight out of place so that we can plug in our two connectors into our daytime running light, and then we can rebolt our headlight into place. And then we'll install our grille. So now we have two wires here for our daytime running light. We have a blue wire and a black wire. The blue's going to be our positive. So we can plug our red wire into our blue, and then the black wires are negative, so we'll plug our black into there. And then we can just get some slack on our harness and slide our headlight back into place.And now we can come to the top of our headlight, and first, we'll put in our push clip and then we'll reinstall our two factory 10-millimeter bolts. And then we can grab our 10-millimeter socket to tighten these down. Next, we can come to the bottom corner of our headlight and reinstall our 10-millimeter nut. And then we can grab that same 10-millimeter socket to tighten this down. And then finally, we can reinstall our 8-millimeter bolt and tighten that down with an 8-millimeter socket. So now we're ready to install our grille onto the truck. So we'll lift it up and pop it into place. Now just be mindful of your wiring harness so you don't pinch anything. Now we can reinstall our lower grille bolts on either side. It's going to be that 8-millimeter bolt, and then we'll tighten that down with our 8-millimeter socket. And then we'll do that same thing on the other side. So next, we can plug back in our harness for our shutter assembly.Next, we can reinstall our four bolts across our shutter assembly. And then we'll grab our 10-millimeter socket to tighten these down. Next, we can reinstall our radiator cover. So we're going to go underneath of this intake funnel and then we can start reinstalling all of our push clips. Now finally, we can reinstall our lower trim piece and install our two 7-millimeter bolts on each side. So now coming back to our wheel well, we can reinstall our two 7-millimeter bolts, and then we'll grab a 7-millimeter socket to tighten these down. And then we can do that same thing on the other side. So that'll wrap up this review and install of the RedRock Baja Upper Replacement Grille with LED lighting in Black for your 2021 and newer F-150s, excluding the Raptor and the Tremor.
