I have before...its a headache but you can make it. First take the pony off your honeycomb and bend a metal piece into a bracket...then pull out the grill...itll Leave holes in the bumper. A delete kit will cover these holes...to do this yourself youll need to either bend some metal into a delete or fill the holes and paint over the location. I took that route but it wasnt pretty. Then just mount your pony bracket and hold the pony on with some 3m. In the end i ran it for a few months...then bought a real delete...its night and day finished quality. Ill post pics of the before and after when i get home.

Cool I appreciate it, I was kinda thinking I could just modify the honey comb grille, like remove it all then leave the bottom part that's bolted down ya know, maybe cut out at the honey comb, then file, and paint the bottom part, so its smooth, and would still keep the holes covered, did that make sense? Haha

A dremel would make easy work of that. It's going to be more work then it's worth. But if you've got more time then money it would be worth it. Post some pics of the process.
