How Does the Putco Grille Insert Install on a 2013 GMC Yukon XL


i have a 2013 yukon xl and i purchased this grill and the lower grill also. i know how the grill attaches but after looking at my vechile I dont think theres anyway to get my hands behind the grill from under the hood. I looked around on the internet and some people are saying you have to remove the front bumper and reomve grill to install this after market grill. Can you please give me easier options on how to install this if there is any.

Expert Reply:

The main grille insert, # P84159, does not require removing the bumper but you will need to remove the factory plastic hood that covers the area between the grille and radiator so you can get your hands behind the grille to complete the installation. This is the normal installation procedure and should be much easier than removing the front end of the vehicle.

The lower grille, # P84160, uses self-tapping screws to install so you should not have to get behind it at all.
