Default Looking for black grille insert.

My flame red sport came with a chrome grille insert. I'd like to replace it with a black insert. I don't want one of those big mesh grilles that require you to cut out the cross bars and bolt a new frame on top of the grill. I kind of like to look of the R/T grille and I know I can order those, but I'm afraid the plastic might be a bit flimsy based on the number of broken ones I've seen.

Any recommendations?

The OEM black honeycomb grille is not flimsy... it's actually probably stronger than the OEM chrome horizontal grille that you have.

As stated above check with moparonlineparts. They are a vendor on the forum as well so they will get you better pricing than what they have listed. Otherwise check the for sale section of the forum. There are a number of guys that take the black honeycomb ones off to put something else in. You might even find a guy that wants to trade.

I did the swap with a local guy. Turned out great on both trucks. As stated above the honeycomb inserts are not flimsy at all. I wouldnt say they are any LESS flimsy then the stock grill inserts, as I found the chrome bars to be heavier then the honeycomb. But find a local who is willing to trade and do it you wont regret it.
