I did a search on here and google...Ebay has some Canadian outfit that has a grill that doesn't say "Ford" only "OOOO". I love the raptor grill and wish I could get one...

Thx,
SgtWalleye <*)))(((><

You and me both, but no, it wont fit, and I haven't run into an aftermarket one.

It's not the width that's a problem. It's our hood.

I've seen people get a raptor hood and grille, and the bolt right up. The only issue is that our fenders don't quite match up to the body line on the raptor hood.

I'll post pics when I find them.

I've done quite a bit of searching and haven't found a grille that has that Raptor look other then the "OOOO" one. I'm positive if someone made a similar aftermarket grille, it would sell like hotcakes.

It'll bolt right in, our doesn't match up to it. You have to swap hoods too.

Thanks for the info. I will look into that now.

Replacing the hood + grille and then getting the hood rolled at a body shop to match the 150 lines is the easiest way to go. Getting it cut to fit.... Labor charges probably redic.

Or start fabricating.
Your looking at some major fab work right there. It would be nice if someone made a ABS peice like that for people who want the raptor grille.

If you're good with a dremmel and a saw the cut style wouldn't be too bad. I was considering doing it myself, but I think it looks kinda tacky. I like my c-clamp grille.

Fiberwerx.com.... Best place for raptor conversions. I actually rather how their bubble fenders for the f150 look more than the actual raptor.

image-167371227.jpg I found this grill on eBay it bolts right in you just have to take some parts off your factory grill and fight to get it in cause it is straight and not curved like it needs to be

But it is the oooo one but I still have a few people ask me about my raptor is and feel silly when in like it's not a raptor
