Can anyone tell me how to install this grill cover? I have 2500 LML WT and it came with the cover, but it isn't obvious to me how it goes on?

3 clips on top,1 goes in middle by hood latch,the other 2 slide on the side and the black "flaps" just push in between the grill and headlights and under the grill and bumper cover. I go through my local car wash everyday and the dryers don't even blow this thing off,I thought for sure it would haha. Hope that helps!

You replace fan bearings and top up the coolant more often...
