BOSS 302 grille

I love the classic and aggressive look of the BOSS 302 grille and I want it for my car, but I cant find one compatible with the V6 (2014).
AM clearly stated that it will not fit in the V6 for mounting reasons, therefore it is a GT only product. I've seen pictures of V6s with the grille but for the life of me, I cant find one online for my model.

Does anyone know something I don't as far as finding one online or at least getting the "GT only" grilles to fit??

well...

i don't know about that... but the GT grille seems to fit my v6 just fine, been on there for months without an issue. I'd assume if the GT grille fits my v6 and the Boss grille fits the GT... it should fit?

At first glance, one would assume grilles from different models would work with each other because they're the same body style. However, there are people that say otherwise that the mounting is completely different. I mean if you got a GT grille on yours then I guess it works. Is yours a '13 or '14?

It's a '14, i couldn't attach the image but if you look at my pictures there's one there. After i found out that the GT grilles were "different" from the V6 i tested it by pulling on it and making it rattle so it wouldn't fall off while driving lol but it wouldn't budge.

But like i said, i've had it on for months, even the GT fog lights work just fine. No issues what so ever.

The 2013-2014 v6 slot is different from the v8. I had to just mod it a little bit with some extra screws to get it to fit. Foglight mounts are already included on the v6, making it all the easierClick image for larger version

Yeah this post got me to double check my grille, well so the GT grille i bought came with the outer Chrome base which i'm assuming is what makes it different. I guess using the original Chrome base on the V6 might be different. So if you don't want to modify a grille, just buying the chrome base should be the fix.

Oh okay you got the GT style fog light grille. Yeah that grille, the billet, and GT500 style grilles can be used on both the 3.7s and 5.0s but that BOSS 302 though...

Yes , that is the firm I got my GT fog grill from for my past 2013 V6. They make sure everything you need is in your order if you ask them.
