Default Lower bumper grille insert question

Hey everybody, so Im trying to find a lower grille for my truck to match the stock one of my 03. The picture below is exactly what I want but i cant find one anywhere. The only thing i can find is a billet one thats similar but the spacing is tighter and there are 5 bars that run across instead the 3. Anyone know where I could get one like the one in the pic? To be honest Im getting pretty frustrated that I cant find one anywhere. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks

Contact T-rex grilles and ask if they can fabricate you something?

Other option is to get the grille4u ebay lower insert grille and mask off every other bar with black tape.

A Lot of folks have done that with great results.

I just did this to my 05 Daytona. The lower plastic peice was a pain to get off. My advice is to just cut the plastic screws. I purchased the grille through crutchfield.com, the grille is made by carriage works. I believe it is made for an 02-06.

Another issue I ran into when doing the install was that the grille is actually made to fit on the outside of the black plastic peice, but I wanted it to be open for when I install a Ram Air hookup. In order to install it, I wedged the grille behind the bumper and in front of the frame rails, then attached from there.

Below are before and after pics.
