    The brackets I am talking about are the 2 large ones you mount in grill top to bolt to truck. They are side specific or won't line up quite right. Not sure how your grill mounts, mine you had to put 4 screws in to hold the brackets, yours may not be that way, I have no idea. This is bracket I'm talking about.

    Looks Great! Have the same on the way in Flat Black. How did you mount the letters?

    3m tape. Surprisingly the tape was stronger than expected. See how it does this winter. The tape isn’t touching that much of the letters.

    That bracket looks pretty much the same as mine. A couple screws hold it on.

    That's a photo of your bracket. Most likely same as mine, had 4 screws to hold it in. If you had to move over bracket a little to get bolt in under the hood, then it is in wrong side, once I did that, bolt went in without any problems like oem. Even when mine were in wrong side I could still get bolt in under hood easily, but had to pull bracket to side slightly to put bolt in. You would think both big brackets would be indentical, but they are not. Could be because grill slightly bends and they very slightly angle the brackets due to this. So makes them side specific.

    I think I have them right. But will check. I’m saying in my post the grill should go down further a bit. Maybe bracket would affect that but your referring to side to side.

    Ya, that thing I was talking about is more fit to the bolts under hood.
