First how to video thread in the 6.7 tech folder. Our good buddy EpicCowlick has quite a few helpful videos posted there. It really isn't very difficult.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. We were out enjoying our 5th wheel and all I had for internet service was my iPhone which made searching pretty tough. Truth is your smart phone can only be as smart as the operator....enough said.

But my Thanks to those of you who helped to steer me in the proper direction as well as the poster of the video.

Now all I got to do is go clean all the bugs off of the truck and get it installed.

Were you able to get the job done? Once you figure out which bolts to remove up top and have a long enough screwdriver to pop the clips, it really is a simple job.

If you were thinking about upgrading your headlight bulbs, now would be the time to do that as well since the grill has to be removed in order to remove the headlights to get to the bulbs!

I will be heading out this morning to pull the grill. I'm OK with the OEM headlight, they are not the best, but sure beat the old simple square headlights that were on my 2006 F250 XL. I do sure miss that truck with it's V10 reg cab and manual transmission.

I am only doing the front grill inserts in black to accent the chrome OEM center.

I also ordered the lower bumper insert, but will hold off in that install until my front receiver comes in this next week so I can cut out an opening for the receiver tube to extend through.
