Ford e450 front grill inserts

I purchased these new grill inserts for my Sunseeker. I think they look pretty decent. If anyone is interested they are from APS. Cost $100.00 for the whole set. Fit good and reasonably easy to install. Stainless steel. I did not wash the front when I was done so there are smudge marks. Looks better from a distance. The six piece upper grill says for 2008 to 2010 econoline. It obviously fits a 2017 on a 2016 chassis. The lower one piece on the bumper says 2008 to current.

Here are before and after pictures.

As long as they don't create too much of a air restriction , they give some good protection to that piece of rad exposed at the bottom, look real good too!!!

is this simply a cosmetic upgrade, or do they serve a functional purpose?

Mostly cosmetic

The lower bumper insert could prevent rocks/pebbles from damaging the radiator.
