im interested in getting one of these for my 2000 durango... one for the grille and one for the bottom of the grille next to the foglamps. when i looked at the back of the grille, it seemed like the little plastic things that are holding the grille are melted on... is this right? also, does anyone know an easier way to put one on...? let me know... thanks!

man i really want one but it seems too complicated to put on... do they usually give it to you as a set already? or do we still have to cut it up on our own? ahhh... i wanna get one already...

A dremel:



To answer your earlier question, some come where you have to cut and others come pre-cut and with all needed hardware. Just ask the seller beforehand. Be sure before you put it on that you use an extension for your hood release otherwise you won't be able to get your hood open.

I thought that was the way it was spelled too rock until I did a google picture search. Then it told me the correct spelling. :D

i tried the "cheap" route on grille inserts,and bought some crappy Grilletech inserts and ended up spending more and getting the Street Scene brushed aluminumn inserts.... the cheap ones looked exactly that, cheap!! they looked like A$$... just an opinion, but dont get the inserts that are designed to sit flat on top of the factory grille.... cut the old crappy lookin pieces of plastic out, and buy a good quality insert..... you'll thank me later..

I didn't use a dremmmel on mine, I just pulled from one side and the melted bits popped off.

I used a Dremel on mine and it was easy, it was the only mod, I installed that went on without a problem, it also caused the hood to fly up on the highway at 75 mph, but that was due to hood latch failure, not the inserts.

You don't need a dremmel. Just pull hard up on one edge and snap it all off by hand. Destruction is easier then construction.......

You can get the Street Scene inserts for $159 from truckperformance.com and $169 (shipped) from socaldakota.com. That's for the grill inserts and lower valance. Those are the two best prices that I've found.

god damn! those are pretty pricy... but i sure would want high quality mesh... you think it makes a difference if i get the after market ones on ebay?

There is a difference. But then again, it is a matter of taste. Some people like the look of the thinner mesh, in which case you should go with the BBP ones on ebay. The SS inserts are more of a flat surface and thicker.

The ones on ebay are generally more of a wire mesh. There is one ebay seller that occassionally has ones that are thicker and similar to Street Scenes, but I don't see any that he/she has for sale right now.

I agree with you though. I think the prices on these things are a bit ridiculous. Compared to the prices I've paid for other, much more elaborate things for my D, I really do think that the Street Scene inserts are extremely overpriced, considering that time and materials for such a product are probably around $10.
