I used some aircraft cable and a 1/8th inch drillbit and two crimps. I didn't want the finger hole in my grills. They are home depot gutter guards btw. Anyhow I drilled 2 holes in the tube brace for the grill and passed the cable through then drilled 1 hole in the finger latch and attached the cable. On the other end made a loop and crimped it. It works flawless and looks like it was meant to be there. Here are some pictures.

Ok guys I haven't been on in a while since I sold the RT but I still have some of the cables I made for the hood release. This is for people that have grill inserts and hate that T-handle P.O.S they give you with it. My method is cleaner and more hidden than any other POS T-Handle will ever be.

I have instructions on how to install it and a video and pictures available. I'm selling the cables for 6.00 each and comes with instructions. You can check out the video Here is the youtube link to the video. Jst send me a PM if you want a cable. I have sold 15 or so over on another Dakota website. Thanks
