I put mine on a little different. Instead of cutting the grill i notched the radiator support a little. I then used some washers and spaced the bumper out about 3/8". All the holes on the top lined up with the factory holes and the bumper holds it in place on the bottom.

so you just moved out the bumper and it fits perfectly fine without having to cut any part of the grill,because on the link, it says to cut .5" off the bottom and the stuff like that
