Default 2013 Black Sport grill on a Big Horn

Hi guys. I'm pretty excited to have done this. I looked seemingly everywhere to find a pic of a truck with this combo, but couldn't. Anyway, here's my 2013 Big Horn, with the Sport Grill on it. In retrospect, I should have just bought a sport, but that's not an option now, so I'll mod.

Here's a pic if how the truck looked the day I bought it. I had the dealer take off the RAM 1500. That was a mistake. There's a lot of scratches that I didn't notice until I first washed it. Anyway, I'm not going for all black, but I wanted to minimize the amount of chrome. Hence the pictures in the previous post.

Looks good! Love the black, but after owning one I will never do it again. Hard to keep clean between salt season and mud/dirt season here in WI.

I am looking for the inserts like both of your grills have. Do you have the old grill and would you be willing to sell just the inserts or grill and inserts?

Thanks everybody. I think the honeycombs would look good too. I wanted the chrome inserts to help tie into the rest of the chrome on the truck. I'm happy with how it turned out. It's subtly different than most every other ram out there!

I say leave it the way it is, looks very sharp and like you said, a little more unique! Did you order the grill from the dealer and did it come painted? If you can't feel the scratches with your fingernail then they should buff out.

Agree. Cant just change the whole scheme. The chrome in the grille ties in perfectly.

Yes, ya gotta make it your own. A little chrome to match the chrome bumper will help tie it in.
