Manufacturer is Paramount (I believe). I got mine for $26 + free S&H through Amazon a couple of months ago. They were back-ordered for a while but eventually came through.

They are NOT an exact match to the upper grilles. The OEM's have a bar every inch or so. These have a little smaller bar every 3/4" (or thereabouts). In other words, they've got an extra bar stuck into the lower grille space than would be necessary for a perfect match. Why, I don't know. My guess is this configuration matches multiple manufacturers 'close enough' and all they have to do to make a new model is change the profile on the ends.

For the price, I decided it was worth a try and, honestly, at 50' and 50MPH nobody will notice the difference. Save the difference in cost between this and the BilletTech and put it towards another mod.

Default Just got my grill insert and not HAPPY!

My grill insert came today. Very disappointed because it is clearly the wrong one. It's the right length but has part in the middle "cut out". In other words is 6 grills but only 3 are the entire length. The other three are short ones on each end with a gap in the middle as if it is supposed to install "around" something. This is not the right one but the directions say it's for a 2009 on Ram.

It sounds like you got the one for the non sport bumper. there are two different ones available for 4th gen Rams, sport and non sport.

That one's designed to go around the tow hooks.

Got mine from Amazon today, hope to get it painted black or possibly powdercoated and installed this weekend. Glad I read this post and saved about $10 off the Egrilles price on EBay.

Check the first couple of pages in this thread. I think it's listed there. Pretty sure that's where I started my search. I have the Sport grille and it fits fine. I was hoping to be able to install mine as a true grille but it has to be an overlay in this case (or heavily modify the insert). It looks silly of a white Sport without the outer edges of the insert. It might work on a black Sport, but not white.

That's the one I got, pretty nice product for under $30. The powdercoater in my area was giving me the run around on when he could get me in so I decided to just sand it down and paint it with black wheel paint in hopes of it being more durable. I hope to get it installed tomorrow.

Here's mine. Bought it off ebay for $38 from e-autogrilles. I believe it is the Paramount grille.
