NOTE this grille will mount to the 2018 plus trucks but your TSS system will need to be disabled or relocated to do so. 

This is just a steel grille insert no factory surround is included with the sale. 

Specs

16 gauge cnc laser cut and formed cold rolled steel, The insert is formed on the brake along with a 5052 aluminium center bar and backing plate to save weight. All formed sections are very tight with no gap and Fully Tig fusion welded on the front seam then polished smooth. We don't stop there after the grilles are polished to a near mirror finish. They are then blasted to a sandpaper finish and coated with a coat of black texture Poly Armor Thermoplastic powder coating it's a matte black with a 36% gloss level with a slight textured finish it's the standard powder on all our products.
  
There is no required cutting or drilling of the factory parts (in some cases reinforcements to the plastic might be needed).
 remove the stock insert and replace it with the new one and bolt it down with the supplied black coated stainless machine Torx screws 
Our signature style one of a kind custom designed letters are stretched and cut into a 5052 Aluminium removable center section and removable Aluminium backing plate for painting a contrasting color all with #10x24 threaded nutserts installed for easy changes down the road. 
 
The grille comes standard with a Thermoplastic powder coat with great corrosion and impact resistance the main picture is the standard insert with a Quick sand blacking plate for reference.
Weight is 13lbs 4oz 

The insert is cold rolled mild steel if you scratch the coating you will need to touch it up or it will rust. The mounting bolts can cut into the coating if not installed with caution. 

We also have a few reports is extreme cold weather of the factory plastic surround getting a stress crack from plastic shrinkage. Additional steps may be needed to prevent this from happening.

There is 2 little notches in the plastic that is a fatigue point that might need to be reinforced from the back side to support the insert. More so in extreamly cold areas of the country.

Here is a fiber glass repair kit that could be used on the back side of the plastic 
surround to strengthen the weak areas prone to cracking. https://www.amazon.com/3M-Fiberglas...-1&keywords=bondo+fiberglass+resin+repair+kit 


The grille is pushing 14lbs and very ridged from it's design and wont flex like the plastic. If off roading/Hard driving the plastic can fatigue as well causing the plastic clips that mount the grille to break.
