SRT Grill On 2013 Limited

I ordered the SRT grill from quirkparts on eBay, after providing my vin and being assured that it would fit on my 2013 Limited. It is not exactly plug and play, but if you have a helping hand, you can make it work. The end results are pretty great, and worth the effort.

Two things to keep in mind:

1. Where the bumper cover clips slip over the lip of the new grill,there are little ridges. These do not exist on the 2013 grill. Take a small knife and simply slice these little ridges off where the tabs need to slide over them.

2. Start by putting the middle of the bumper cover back on. Make sure each clip goes in the right spot. They will try flip the wrong way. When clipping the edges of the bumper cover on, the first side will go in with a little prodding and stretching. The second side will take much more effort, and a helping hand. You really have to stretch the bumper cover and take your time managing the clips back in to place.

It isn't that hard, as long as you have a buddy. It takes about an hour, all in.

(Before plastidip on the grill, and mirrors, vinyl on the trim, tow hooks, "Angel eye" headlights, new rims... And so on...)

Nice, I like that style too. Sucks that they cracked. They are aftermarket lights actually made for a compass, but they have the same fit as ours. I see you've already visited the thread discussing them...

Re: SRT Grill On 2013 Limited

Looks great I am on a similar path. My Vapor grille came in the other day. I will be installing that and then the same headlights as you have during the winter. How do you like those lights and did you seal them as well? Also did you vinyl wrap your lower front chrome piece? How did you do your side mirrors? I was thinking of taking them to a body shop down the street and have them painted

Re: SRT Grill On 2013 Limited

Nice! I haven't had much time recently to do work myself. I took my lights to a friend and he ran a bead of silicone around the outer edges. I'll find out if that fixed the issue shortly, as the weather will be changing soon. I love the lights otherwise. I have had no issues all summer long. I took off my lower bumper facia and sprayed with plastidip. I also plastidipped the chrome on both side mirror. They have held up REALLY well. I was concerned that it would look bad, but they really do look good. It is a nice contrast to have matte black mixed with the glossy paint.
