Replacement Grille Questions


Recommended Posts

I bought a new 2015 Silverado. It is a LT (not a Z71) with a Sport package. I have been trying to put in an aftermarket grille. I have ordered a Carriage Works Billet. I currently have a crome factory so I wanted to get a replacement and not the bolt over. The problem is that Chevy must have made a change. In 2014 it appears you would need to cut out the old one. On mine it has clips and the chrome hatched part can be removed.

The people at Carriage Works can't seem to get this figured out. the options they have are:



2014-15 Silverado 1500 LT & LTZ only, 2 piece - Bolt-Over 47271 47272 47273 Bolt-Over 1

2014-15 Silverado 1500 LT & LTZ only, Cut-Out Replacement 47281 47282 47283 A 2

2014-15 Silverado 1500 Z71 only, 2 piece - Bolt-Over - Main Grille Only 47221 47222 47223 Bolt-Over 1

2014-15 Silverado 1500 Z71 only, 2 piece - No-Cut Replacement Grille 47231 47232 47233 C 3


Does anyone know if the removeable sections (2) that I have which are chrome would fit into the same as a Z71 Grill?


I have researched all the old posts on here and can't find what will work for me.


Thanks in advance,



Any help would be great. Thanks,

As an update, I have been working with the Carriage Works Factory and discovered they do not have an option for my truck as a replacement grill. The Z71 is a different size grill opening than the LT. My other option is to paint the chrome grill black and put the bolt over billet grill over the top. Not sure I like this option. Will let you know what I decide. Note to anyone else with a 2015 Silverado LT, even though Carriage Works states they have a replacement grille for us, it won't work.
