    Lightbulb How easy is it to change out the Chrome grill to a Black Sport grill?

    Hi,

    I am thinking of changing out the Chrome grill to GM's all Black Sport grill, and was wondering if anyone here has done this yet.. I would like to know how easy this is to do, and if the front bumper needs to come off to do so.

    Here is the gmpartsdirect part number for the black one #19156281 ,if anyone here is interested in seeing it.

    I've seen guys at the dealership installing that grill in 15 minuts. took me 45 minuts. the time depends if you have the right tool.
    no need to take bumper off. anyway, when you buy sport grill. it will come with instructions and pictures

    I have a question regarding the chrome trim strip above the grill on the hood. Did you paint over the chrome, have it stripped first, or what? Is this a DIY? The truck looks awesome!

    Funny irony... my neighbor just got a new white 08 sport EXT, and he likes my standard grill better.
