Billet Grille

I installed a Carriage House horizontal grille and bumper grille last weekend. Now I am getting a humming/whistling from the front end. Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do to fix it?
Thanks
Kevin

You had a billet grille on it when you bought it correct?

I had a plastic billet look a like grille. The problem I ran into, no one had a similar bumper grille. So I ended up getting both, so it will look right.

Send a PM to BigBlueMacDaddy. He replaced the grille on his 2007 with a Lincoln grille. Haven't heard him mention anything about any new noises. Probably just your transmission. JUST KIDDIN! lol

The wifey says to get the exhaust done, and it will muffle out the humming.

No I'm not George. And his grille replaced the old yukky plastic one. Once he gets his mags, he won't hear that little bit of swoosh.....he's silly!
