Grilles on the cars and trucks are not just aimed to protect the radiator and other important parts from impact, but is also an important styling element of the vehicle’s exterior. While OEM grilles are pretty much identical for the same year, make and model, modern aftermarket offers a variety of options for those, who are looking for more distinctive appearance. Aftermarket grilles differ in shapes, materials, installation types and prices. So no wonder there is a number of grilles available to meet the needs, budget and expectations of American car owners.

Billet Grille: What is NOT Included?

Normally, billet grilles are car grilles that feature vertical or horizontal bars. They are made of aluminum or alloys, as the material pretty much depends on the manufacturer. When you shop for billet grilles, make sure to check, what is included into the package. That’s because the majority of aftermarket billet grille manufacturers do not ship grille shell and emblem along with the grille. The same story with the grille emblems. Some aftermarket grilles are designed to work without the emblem and even do not have a place to mount one. Some grilles note, that they are designed to work with the OE emblem. It is uncommon for an aftermarket grille to come equipped with an emblem, and the majority of sellers will say that in their product descriptions.

Billet Grilles: Installation Types

It is obvious, that grille installation will differ based on year, make, model and specs of the vehicle. However, there are several common grille installation types. They install pretty much the same way, so it is good to check out the generic installation instruction in order to know, what to expect once you get the product. Here are the most common grille installation types.

  • Replacement grilles;
  • Overlay grilles;
  • Grille Skins.
