How to remove ZJ grille?

I just bought a Trenz billet grille and I need to remove the factory grille from my '97 ZJ. I removed the two screws on the top of the grille but it's still very hard to get off. Are there any more screws or does it just pop off? Thanx

Once the top two screws are removed, there are two additional screws actually in the grill itself. Towards the end of each side and towards the top. You cant miss 'em

Did you get instructions for your grille? I know with the Trenz grill I bought you'll have to do some cuttin' of your stock grill. They look great when it's all done tho'.

Yeah, it says I'm gonna have to do some trimming of the plastic support but on the instructions it says '96 Cherokee...not Grand so I removed the grille and test fitted the new billet one and it does need to be trimmed. So tomorrow I'm gonna swing my truck by my friend's shop and he's gonna trim it for me...can't wait!
