take out grille?

i'm going to put a sweeet chrome grill on the jeep and i'm wondering how to actually take the grill off. i've noticed a couple of screws at the top but i'm sure there is more to it.

thanks in advance guys!

it looks good. it's not real chrome but either way it's better than the grille with the hole in it.

yup, the actual grille fit in fine but the grille insert (black, rockauto) didn't fit into it's own grille! maybe because i got the eco one?
