Swapping SRT8 Mesh W/Your Own Stock Grill Trim.

I did this mod awhile back, prob one of the first I did when I got my WK. Found a red rock crystal srt8 grill for 85 bucks shipped so I bought it and swapped it out my black trim. I did it in winter, so I soaked both pieces in hott water in my bath tub to soften the plastic since I was afraid of it cracking.

The srt grill.


Using a small flat head screwdriver I pryed the top and bottom tabs off first, then working from one side I pryed the tabs on the verticals while pulling the trim away just enough to keep it from snapping back in. If I had another set of hands would of went quicker. Plus, I learned not to pull the trim away too much or the next tabs will get wedged and harder to pry off.










And were done. I put the other one back together and sold it on ebay. Made a little $$ back......I almost want to say it cost me $50 altogether for this one now after selling mine.

Re: Swapping SRT8 Mesh W/Your Own Stock Grill Trim.

Like i wrote its easy, just undo the top and bottom tabs first, then working from one side to the other undo the tabs while gently pulling the trim away but not so much the next tabs are wedged tight that you cant get the screwdriver in.

Haha, did you even read my thread? I found someone selling it on ebay. Starting bid was like 40 bucks but had a buy it now for $85 shipped so I scopped it up as soon as i saw it. Then I put that srt trim on my stock back and sold it on ebay for like $60 shipped. I got it done for CHEAP...... I really dont think you will come across a deal like that again. I seem to stumble up them, like buying the mopar ground effects kit new for 200 bucks. hehe. My whole brand new JL audio stereo system cost me the same as going to walmart buying crap gear.

Re: Swapping SRT8 Mesh W/Your Own Stock Grill Trim.

I did read your thread, and it doesn't say anything about you buying it on ebay, just selling it on ebay.
