    @Stevieg6: DIY, no charge!
    I agree, that quote seems ridiculous.

    How much did you pay for your Katskin install? Im looking to do the same and my Local shop quoted me at 10-12 hours of labor @ $105/hr. seems high to me so i'm just asking around. Thanks

    I did it the easy way as a trial to ensure I liked it before making it more permanent.

    (EDIT) 0. I removed the grille from the truck to avoid having to mask everything.
    1. I masked off the chrome bars and the little supporting crossmembers.
    2. I pulled out the little egg crate side grilles.
    3. I sprayed a couple coats of plasti-dip as a primer.
    4. A couple coats of black automotive spray paint I had laying around. I didn't colour match as this was just a trial.
    5. A few coats of automotive clear coat.
    End of story.
    It is holding up amazingly well. It seems very chip resistant. Perhaps due to the plasti-dip primer. I do intend to do a better job of it with actual prep and primer work one day but this works great for now and makes the truck stand out a little bit.
    Lmk if you need more info.

    Hey, I just saw your grille, and it's exactly what I have been wanting to do with my XLT.

    Would be kindly tell me how you did it and what you used?

    The RAS is great. Install was remarkably easy. I'm a handyman/fix-it type but I'm no mechanic. It couldn't have been simpler to set up. My truck looks a bit funny with an extra inch of rake on it though.
    I have not towed or hauled much in the last couple months. It'll get a workout in September I hope.

    I have the 3611Y. I think the SCrews all use 3611Y. The original group buy thread has the details:

    How is your RAS working? Any problems with install? I needed to order a shorter hook to go over the spring eye (Kit #3611Y instead of 3611). Thought it might be because of MaxTow, but you have MaxTow too.
