As mentioned - color match the grille shell but do the cross hairs the same color as the emblems.

Yea. Like Rise Capt said, plasti-dip. It was chrome. I removed the grille from the truck to avoid over spray. Just cleaned it real good, tape off what you don't want plasti dipped. And then put it back on when it dries real good. No prep really but a good clean and dry.

I plasti dipped the RAM letters on the sides as well. Like they said if, you don't like them, peel them off. I got the black headlights off ebay. They seemed to work and look nice.
