I picked up a low mile PIU(2016) to play with, it had lights mounted in the factory position in the grille, I am looking for those coves, as I am not going to be installing lights. So, if someone has a set they want to sell, or just the part number, that would be a tremendous help.

TIA

The spots on either side of the top of the emblem.

Thanks for the pic. It seems that I've seen that before and someone replied with the items that you need for that. Haven't been able to track that down yet. I can't recall if they used the PIU Upfitters Guide or not. There are actual parts that seem to snap right in and look exactly like the rest of the grille.

You are correct, they just snap in place, I just haven’t been able to source any yet. I am certain someone on here has a set or the part #.

I wish I could find the picture I saw previously. It showed the grille and the 2 inserts but can't recall if it also showed the part number.

I have a set coming, I’ll see if they have a part #, or just a manufacturer code on them.

I am also looking for one of those inserts as I had one fall out, or a curious person parted ways with one of mine.... Any help finding one (or a Ford part number) would be appreciated!

Welcome to the Forum. :wave:
Hopefully Marauderleader can supply some useful info on that. I was not able to find those inserts on any of the sites that supply For parts.

Thank you for the welcome! I drive one of these for work and like to keep it looking relatively spiffy, even when my employer does not care about a missing part. When I could not find anything on Google I came hoping ya'll could help me out. Waiting to hear what Marauderleader discovers, otherwise I may be out of luck it seems. I have to think there are a ton of these discarded inserts out there, having been removed for LED install.
