    Can anyone give me some guidance?
    I'm trying to plasti-dip my grille housing. However, I can't get the thing off the rig.
    I removed all screws, that are visible. There's some area around the hood line, that is actually keeping it attached.
    Help!

    @JROCK915
    I bet the only step you are missing is to pull the grill directly toward you.

    Review all the steps to make sure though!!

    I tried, it was flapping back & forth. Like it was all loose. It just wouldn't budge. Then I heard a crack. Stopped immediately, and tightened it all back up. Maybe I'll try a pry tool, and wedge it in there, as I pull it straight out. Thanks.

    It's common to break the outside two plastic clips. I did. Just pull hard.

    Not what I was hoping to hear.. I followed those directions when I replaced my grill and didn't have any issues. If you want, I can email you some pictures I have of the backside of my grill, maybe it will give you a better picture of how it goes together/apart.

    Honestly, I think this is quite common. Did it myself as well.

    @JROCK915 I figured I would post it up here in case anyone can use it in the future...
    I forgot that I had the protective pieces for shipping on the ends, which is a pretty important part of the assembly/disassembly.
    I have since sold the grill so I can't take any extra pictures..

    Here is a video I found that may help...

    major difference. I'm a 2nd Gen. The grille comes off the hood.

    2nd gen wasn't that bad. It should just pull right out when you pull it towards you.
