The grille is not plug and play, it took a couple of hours with a dremel, but I found an 18-19 grille on eBay for 200 bucks. But 2013-2017’s can do it. I love the refresh!

Looks great actually. Really updates the look of the pre facelift L405.

Headlights would be a nice touch but I think it would be way too costly and very technical as wiring harness is surely different for the 18+ LED headlights

Looks great...can you take a few close-up photos around the lights where it meets the grill to see where you had to cut...

The 2019 grille does not fit as is. You you have take the old grille silver trim piece and use blue painters tape as a template for the Dremel cuts on the new grille . The new 2019 grille has a silver trim piece that pops out easily and you have to use a couple of screws under it to attach the bottom of the grille to the raised u shape holdings that are part of the old bumper raised in square holes that used to hold the old bumper. The cut outs aren't perfect but from 3 feet it looks great. A body shop could do a better job. I just wanted a refresh after owning the truck for 20181030_160529_resized.jpg 20181030_160812_resized.jpg 20181030_160852_resized.jpg years and not wanting to pay another 100k when this truck is paid for. There are some under neath plastic pieces of the new grille that need to shaved off like a double layer. If you buy a new grille and compare it to the old grille a lot of this will make sense. I also used two self tapping metal screws to hold down the top of the grill since the only thing that does line up are the center hood latch and each driver and passenger side hood latch. 20181030_160409_resized.jpg 20181030_160400_resized.jpg 20181030_160524_resized.jpg The grille runs on eBay from 200-600 I found one for 200 and snapped it up.

Thank you everyone for the kind words. Headlights are 5-10,000 and won't fit and wiring plugs are different. There is an outfit that sells an 12,000 full facelift but mine cost 200 bucks and 3 hours! And the aftermarket stores don't have a 19 facelift grille made yet. I'm sure in a year or two they will. I just like being an early adopter and first on the block.
