Try the VIN for the truck linked below, it's a loaded 502A.

It appears to be in the FordParts.com system.

Looks bigger than the one on my 2015...
Iím thinking about getting a ďblankĒ style raptor grille and then adding a Ford emblem much like the new 18 SE grilles for my 2015.
Looks like the same 9-inch emblem as before, I installed a 13-inch Super Duty emblem on my Raptor replica grille.

I'm excited for this thread. Personally, I was torn on buying an 18 vs a 17 because I really like the looks of the Raptor grille on the 15-17's and then I saw the 18 Raptor wasn't changing. Ultimately, I went with the 18 XLT and I really wanted that honeycomb grille. In the end, I couldn't really justify spending the extra $ on the SE because I didn't care for the hockey stick decals and would just peel them off. Considered the STX but I liked how the XLT was optioned. Figured I could just pick up an SE grill and swap it out. It's not a Raptor grille, but I think it's the next best thing.

I'm thinking of swapping my 2018 Sport Grill to a STX Grill, anyone done the swap? Any parts needed besides the STX Grill? (Is the Emblem, hardware, etc. needed)?

I was thinking about going with the STX grill at first and even had dealer quote me a price but the more I looked at the sport grill the more I like it.

I like the sport grill...I may like the lariat a tad more but not enough to change it. If my truck wasnít black Iíd color match like that it looks nice. Since I have black tho Iíll leave it magnetic...subtle offset.
