    [​IMG] put my grill on a couple of months back and have had nothing but compliments. Was able to find one on EBay with all the letters, was going to paint it black but the grayish grill matched my explorer hood badge so well left it as is.

    The non-ford shop that installed mine said we should not use the LED signature light as those wires don't maintain a constant power to keep the lights on, rather they send an 'on' signal and then an 'off' signal later. I can't confirm that, but thats what they said. The foglights had a constant power when on and the wire was readily accessible so we went with that.

    If you want independent control of them, you can always wire a dedicated line and put a toggle switch on your dashboard. I didn't want that.

    If you want it on whenever the car is running, you need to find a wire thats only energized when the car is on.

    It will not. Just went through this yesterday. Bought grill on Amazon which stated fitment for 2016-2018. Took 6 weeks to get. Had body shop install yesterday. Doesn't fit. 2018 grill is more squared off at bottom corners. Now out $200 install cost. Working on a financial solution. I can't find anyone with a fit for the 2018. Learn from my mistake.

    No picture. Just a small shaded circle with a sort of white 'negative' sign in the middle. How are you posting your pictures?

    Hi Ken. The grille for the 2016-17 Sport is FB5Z-8200-BA and for the 2018-19 it is JB5Z-8200-BD. Always best to check a parts site first.
