I just realized somethin I think is kinda funny. Ive had the billet grill on for bout 3 weeks now, and I just realized today that I cant access the hood latch to open the hood. How do you other guys (and gals) with billet grills fix this problem? Did I install it wrong? Thanks

No you didn't install it wrong. 95-97 Explorers have this hood latch problem whenever billet grilles are installed. Personally I wish I could tell you how to get around it but since I have a 99, I dont know how to do it. Sorry and I hope someone will chime in and offer useable advice!

Thanks anyways Rob!
I was wondering when I was reading the installation instructions about the grill I showed ya bout 3-4 weeks ago (Grillcraft I think?) why the directions said it wouldnt work on 95-97 X's. Ah well, hopefully someone else knows.

Some use screw drives. I'm sure you could just take out the latch and bolt on an extension to that part so it's higher up.
