It's very EZ to install. About 6-7 bolts and 1 for the emblem. If I recall you also have to remove the hood latch. Again very EZ with 2 bolts. While the grille is off, be sure to clean and wax the area where the grille frame rests. You will see the dirt. My old grille was dull and had numerous rock chips. The new grille is more of a black chrome finish. It looks very nice on the LS.
