2005 Grill Compatibility With 7.3 ABR Front Bumper

Quick question.

I am planning on installing an '05-07 grill on my early '99. I realize that to install an '05-07 grill with the stock 7.3 bumper, the grill needs to be shaved down unless you run the newer style 6.0 bumper that is made for it.

In my case, have an ARB front bumper on my truck and looking below the stock grill, there is plenty of room to spare and nothing that I can see that would interfere with the taller '05-07 grill.

Because of this, am I correct in presuming that the stock '05-07 grill with bolt right up and not need to be shaved?

Thanks!

Perhaps I am not reading it right...but seems to me that price is just for the inserts. Good Luck!

Good catch...

It looks like this is something that would work instead.

No the first one was the whole grille. The second was a grille headlight combo.

As to the original question that depends on the gap measurement between the original grille and ARB bumper. Without that its hard to say

What's the chance you know someone with an 05-07 f250/350? If you do, it's as simple as 4 bolts and 4 clips.
