Default replacement grill question

The plastic grill on my 07 megacab is cracked in a couple places and I have been looking around at replacement options. I like the look of the stock grill but the plastic not so much. Paramount Restyling grills make a polished aluminum that I have my eye on. However my searches haven't turned up much in the way of reviews on the product. How was does the aluminum polish hold up? Can anyone give paramount products a thumbs up or down for me?

How about other similar products? I am not really into the mesh or riveted looks of most of the aftermarket grill I see. (no offence to anyone, just my preference)

Thanks for your input,
Ryan

If you live in an area where they use chemicals on the roads in the winter time, I would stay away from polished aluminum. I had polished aluminum wheels on a jeep wrangler. I had to have them powdercoated black because of the staining by the road salts. jmho

They use loads of salt in my neck of the woods. That's what I was thinking and afraid of. The majority of semi trucks I work on have polished aluminum tanks, and wheel. They looks dull in no time.

What other Options do I have?

Chrome and painted grilles would hold up better. Stainless would work also.
