Lower Front Grille

I recently bought an '08 WK Diesel that had been used as a tow car behind a motorhome. The tow bar was mounted in the lower grille housing. After removing the tow bar, I ordered a grille to mount in the opening, but the one I received didn't fit at all. The more I checked online, that particular grille was the only one available. Has anyone else encountered this? Is there a grille available, or will I have to get one made? As this area serves to cool the transmission cooler, it definitely needs protection.
I haven't discussed this with a dealer.
Thanks in advance for any response.

Re: Lower Front Grille

You will need to get one made. Easily with some Mesh and screws. The grill you purchased fits the WK SRT8

Re: Lower Front Grille

Are you talking about the lower valance that is basically just an air dam for aerodyamics? Here's what the 2008 looks like with the valence removed



and a shot showing part of the valence around the fog lamp

Re: Lower Front Grille

you ordered an SRT grille like this......





in order to have a grille on a non-srt bumper, you will need to make one. I have never heard of anyone on here having any damage because they didn't have a grille there though.
