If I did post it here I will when I get home but I believe I posted it on the first or second page.

Here it is, I made a thread for it but never put it in this one...... sorry man.

If you don't have fogs from the factory like I didn't, you will need the fog grille in order to make it work. The fogs won't stay in by them self's. The SVT grille isn't long enough to fill in the lower grille area by itself.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------



I hacked the ends of the OEM fog grille off but I left enough to give me something to work with.





Then I cut the three bars out of the inside just leaving the outside frame.


Here's what I was left with after.


I put the lights in place so I could test fit the SVT lower and measure up my cut lines.




I took some wire snippers and cut off along where I wanted the grille to meet up with the fogs.


What I was left with.


I test fitted again and trimmed as needed till it met up with the fogs and it fit in the grille space
properly.


End result.


Left over stuff.


Finished.
