Review & Install Video
What's going on, guys? I'm Alex from American Muscle, and this is my quick review and install of the T-Rex Billet Series Bumper Grille, fitting the 2015 and 2016 F-150. So in this video, I'm gonna talk about the construction and materials of this grille as well as the installation. But right off the bat, I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter for the naturally aspirated trucks, and the EcoBoost models are going to require a little bit of cutting, which we'll hit on later.
So this grille's going to appeal to the F-150 owner that's looking to change up the lower grille with something a little bit more different. Now, this U.S.-designed and built piece is gonna fit snugly into your bumper, which is gonna give off a really aggressive, sleek, whacked out look that's sure to turn heads, be it on or off-road.
So in terms of the construction here, guys, T-Rex has made this up of lightweight, heavy duty, aircraft grade aluminum that's a 6061 Series, which is sure to stand up over time to any type of debris that you might encounter, be it on or off-road. Now, they're gonna then finish this off in a gloss, black powder coat finish that's gonna be sure to stand up over time to any type of corrosion.
Now, one of the great things about this grille, in my opinion, not only for the fact that this is designed and built in the U.S., is that this was designed with advanced Cat engineering, which means this is gonna fit snugly in your grille for an OE look and fit. So another great aspect about this grille, aside from the fact that this is designed in the U.S. and it's gonna fit perfectly, is the fact that T-Rex is going to offer a limited lifetime warranty as well as a three-year warranty on the finish.
So in terms of the pricing here, we're gonna see this grille fall in line right around the $100 neighborhood, which, in my opinion, is a huge selling point as, if you're looking at other alternatives, they can easily tip the scales at around $200 to $300, based on the materials as well if they have any type of lighting that's built in. Now, I can't say enough, again, guys. You're definitely gonna be getting away with a huge bang for the buck in this product that's designed/built by T-Rex in the U.S. and getting away with having a lifetime warranty as well as a three-year warranty on the finish. Definitely a quality piece, in my opinion.
Now, as I said in the top of the video, the install here is gonna be a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you should be looking at about 15, 25 minutes to get this installed on your truck with only a Phillips-head screwdriver and the supplied clips that already come with this grille. In regards to the EcoBoost model F-150s, this grille is going to require a little bit of trimming, just to ensure you're gonna have a perfect fit. And I can personally attest that this work can be done in your driveway with a basic Dremel or any other type of trimming tools.
All right, guys, so just to wrap things up here, I really like this option for the 2015 and 2016 F-150s, not only because you're gonna be getting a quality-made product from a brand that we know, but for the fact that you're gonna be making your F-150 stand out from the pack. So that's my review for the T-Rex Billet Grille, fitting your 2015 and 2016 F-150s, available right here at AmericanMuscle.com.
