    Anybody seen anything for our 2010s? The stock grills allow way too much debri/bugs into the radiator. I guess I could just make my own if I really needed to.

    That's a good idea I thought i seen some billet grills at the local Pepboys. Looked like they where DIY installs.

    I wouldn't use this stuff. It looks like the open slots would allow greater than 50% through. Plus if you paint it black, it will get chipped up and look terrible. Check Ebay out for some official black mesh.

    Better late than never, I finally did this mod. I do this for functional purpose, not for look, so I'm happy with the results.

    So how do you like it so far? How did you attach it to your bumper?

    Of course I like it very much because I did it myself:D. Actually you cannot really see anything standing up, and that's how I like it, functional and hidden.

    I cut it to size, then lower it through the hole from the hood's latch (took it out for easier access). Then use black zip ties to attach it.

    If you look real close, you can see the zip ties.
