Question Paramount Raptor Grille on a 2016

Yes, I did search and came up empty handed.

Has anyone installed the Paramount Raptor Grille on their 11-16 F2/350? If so, could I see a pic, please? Like I said above, I searched the forum and didn't find anything. Admittedly, I may have not conducted my search properly (I'm still new). If there's a link to another thread on this, I'll more than happily read through it.

If you have installed one, can you swap out the 1st and 3rd letter for the F and R?

Lastly, has anyone found a reputable source for these letters? Paramount doesn't seem to sell them and the only "sources" I've found are on eBay. Still not sure if this is the route I'll go, I actually like the factory grill.

I have emailed Paramount and am awaiting their response. If all else fails I will be working out of Ontario, CA in a week or so and I'll swing by their place of manufacturing.

Thanks in Advance for any information provided...

I've seen those on 150s and they look terrible to me but then again I've owned 3 Raptors. I'd imaging it doesn't say FORD due to copy right complications that's probably why they haven't answered about it.

Yeah, I've found plenty of pics with them on 150's as well, but not 250's except for websites that sell them. TBH I'm not dead set on it, I the way it looks on the web, but like I said earlier I also like the stock grille too. I do like the way it says Ford vice the circles in it. I hear ya on the copyright complications, didn't even think of that.

I appreciate the response!

Thanks Strokin! For some reason it looks different on that truck than the "advertisement" pictures I've seen on the internet.

Trying to mentally picture what it would look like on my truck, from that picture, I'm not a fan of it going on my truck. Looks good on that truck, but again, that truck has a more aggressive "race stance" to it. Which makes sense, since the Raptor was essentially designed to be an offroad race truck.

I appreciate you taking the time to dig that picture up.

I just ordered one today, yes the 1st and 3rd letters come off, and if you are resourceful you can mod them in to an F & R. If you are not so handy, there are sources out there that sell the F & R already made and you just have to swap them out with the "D's" on the grille.

CUZI - Thank you for the information; I'd be interested to see pictures once you have it installed.
