Question Front bumper fill

I took out the stock front licence plate holder as we don't need front plates in SC. Was wondering if there are any clip-in products to fill the gaping hole without restricting airflow to the radiators and look cool.

On ebay search for (f150 ecoboost grilles) even if you don't have an ecoboost a bunch will come out. They work for the 5.0s also. They start at about 40 bucks. I have the plain black one.

Has anybody ever had any problems that are related to the grill inserts in an ecoboost like turbo problems or anything like that? I wanna put one in but dont want an excuse from the dealer saying that it caused a problem if something happens when pulling my travel trailer

I doubt it will have any problems. The IC is on the front getting constant airflow. If something does happen take the grill out before taking it to the dealer. I live in alberta so humidity and high heat aren't a problem for turbo'd vehicles
