WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR WHEN I BUY MY GRILLE?
Shopping for a grille is as much about choosing a quality item as it is about making sure you get one that matches your style and enhances the look of your vehicle. Here are a few different things you should consider when you buy your grille.
It all starts with the overall design of the grille. Choosing this is largely a matter of personal preference. Options include studded frames, wire mesh, plain frames, and more. Along with this, you'll want to look at design features that help you stand out as well. Things like shapes, patterns, and more are all available so you'll want to spend time looking at photos and determining what works for you and what doesn't.
In general there are two main options: black or chrome. Some grilles may offer other colour and material choices, but those are the two you'll usually be looking at. Once again, it's a matter of personal taste so look at photos to find the one you think will accent your vehicle the best.
This is one aspect that is often overlooked. There are a few different things to consider when it comes to how the grille is installed, including:
- Number of Pieces: Most grilles are one piece, but some could come in two or more pieces that need to be assembled. Generally, one piece construction is stronger and more reliable but will often require cutting to size.
- Attachment Method: There are two main methods here, either bolt-on or inserts. Despite their names, both are attached with bolts or screws. The big difference is that inserts usually slide into the existing grille or grille space while bolt-ons attach over it.
- Location: Some grilles are designed for the bumper while others are for the main grille area of the vehicle. Pay attention to where the grilles are placed before you place your order.
There are several excellent brands out there that all offer their own unique style of grilles. Potential brand options include RBP, Westin Automotive, and N-Fab.
The price of a good grille will vary. In general, cheaper insert grilles won't cost as much but won't have that "WOW" factor that the more expensive versions offer. Consider both durability and appearance when you shop, not just the price.
Overall, the grille you add to your vehicle will change the way it looks. Take the time to find the one that fits you best and you won't regret it.
