Default Raptor Grille

Will a raptor grille fit on a regular F150?

No, it's a different hood and fenders I think.

Raptor grille with fit the regular F150 only if you install the Raptor hood as well. Raptor fenders are not necessary.

Wondering if it can be modified to fit our hoods?!

Short answer - No. This is due to the way that the Raptor's grille mounts to the Raptor hood (which is different that the F-150).


*F-150 hood


*Raptor hood

So why not just put a Raptor hood on a F-150 ...


*Notice the hood<>fender gap ... The Raptor's front fender has a different contour than that of a F-150.

That being said ... Am currently working-on a fabrication in which the Raptor grille is attached to a modified F-150 grille surround.

Yes it can, a member on here has done it on his gray F150. It's a custom fabricated adapter constructed from the top part of the regular grille surround.

Previous efforts that didn't make it to a "product" ...
