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

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.
