Question stock grill removal, problems?

Hey guys, i was wondering, would removing the stock grill cause any problems at all? I know the stock doesnt really protect anything anyways, but just to make sure. any feedback?

I wouldn't say it doesn't protect anything. There is nothing else blocking large objects from punching into your radiator where the grill is (excluding the hood release mechanicals). I'd be sure there was something to keep your radiator covered.

my $0.02

Some thing is better than nothing but the bottom of the bumper is wide open so it really wouldn't matter if it was there or not

This is true but isn't the AC cooler up higher where the grill is? It's dark and I can't go look right now.

I have mesh in my grill anyway so I have something instead of nothing

The ac condencer is the same size as the radiator so if you remove the grill it will be in the open like the opening in the bumper and your more likely to get hit through the bumper anyway
