Adding a cutout-style billet grille to your truck is one of the most basic and common ways to clean up its appearance. It's also a pretty simple procedure if you have done one before, but it can be a little difficult for first-timers. It's one of those mods where you have only one shot to get it done right. It is in your best interest to take your time and do each step properly, because the grille is where most people's attention is drawn to.

The install here is on my '00 S-series GM truck just before it was to be displayed at the 2007 SEMA Show. Though I previously had a billet grille in the truck, it had seen better days and needed to be changed out before the show. So read along to see how I installed this grille before my big debut.

The Final Word
With the billet grille installed, it was time to attach the whole unit to the front of my truck. This step is easy because the factory push clips make it possible to attach the grille shell to the core support in just seconds. After installing the upper grille, I attached a simple bolt-in billet grille to my Envoy bumper. Once completed, it's easy to see how both of these grilles complement the truck's front end.
