Center bumper grille for 2012 F-150

By Bill T.

I recently purchased a 2012 F-150 Super Crew Cab with the Eco-Boost engine. There is a 5"x20" opening in the front bumper where the license plate bracket is placed on trucks with the 5.0 or 6.2 engine. There is nothing to stop a rock or road debris from getting into the raditator, oil or transmission coolers. There needs to be a grille made to fit into the exsisting slots and bolt holes of the license plate bracket that is not used with this engine combination.

I agree. I have an S-Crew Eco on order and seen the opening. I would like to see a factory solution that wouldn't void warranty or degrade engine life or performance.
