Hello 👋 I want to remove the black letters on the front of my grill just don’t know how to get to them without breaking something! I got to the point where I was pulling on the grill but I say the clips on the corners that look like it needed a special tool to remove from the brackets was scared to pull anymore fearing of breaking or cracking the grill any help or video? I’ve looked on YouTube and haven’t found any one showing how to remove front grill. Thanks 🙏 guys

Apparently you can buy the letters separately. Are they just clipped in there?

If they are clipped in I would be prepared to break them on removal, the Z71 in my front grille broke when I removed it.

I believe they are inserts that clip in behind the grille, but I could be wrong. The pass-through lettering is otherwise definitely a part of the grille.
 
These are just letters. They are the same that goes on the tailgate

Yeah, I posted the original link. They are plastic letters that snap into the plastic grille. If you removed the existing letters though, the grille itself would still say CHEVROLET so I'm not sure the OP is going to remove the CHEVROLET from the front of the truck without replacing the grille with something aftermarket.

That 2022 refresh and 2023 Custom grille is different from the 2019-2022 grille, so aftermarket options may be limited.
 
I've seen stickers to go OVER the letters, I wasn't aware of replacement letters. I have a 2021 Custom and I have Putco Black Stainless letters that stick on in the recess of that style grill.
 
Did mine yesterday. Instructions say remove grill, but I used a small screwdriver to wedge in the front where tabs are located on each letter, and they popped right out. Took me a bout twenty minutes as I was being careful not to damage my grill.

Have a look at the picture the OP posted, the new Custom grille is different than the older one.
Correct. I had a 2019 Custom Trail Boss before my new LT Trail Boss, and they were "breathable" Chevrolet letters as I called them, as air could pass through the letters. These new ones appear to protrude outwards in a 3D effect.

I KNOW they are different. I own a 21 Custom and HATE the 22 refresh Custom grille. What I was talking about are these two different types of overlays I've found on ebay.
