I wanted to upgrade my black honeycomb to the chrome honeycomb, but you've convinced me the black is worth keeping. Thanks you just saved me $200.

I just finished swapping my chrome horizontal grill insert for a black honeycomb one. I posted an add on my local Kijjii and had a few replies in under a week. The install wasnt that bad either.. except for the two dozen little clips holding the insert to the grill shell.


Before..


After..

Im not too big on chrome either.. several different companies make the "big mouth" grilles. They have a few options on finishes and honeycomb, horizontal billet, etc. I went with RBP on mine and am pretty pleased with it, but it was rather pricey..

Do Not paint them!!! I tired that and a few weeks went by before the chrome started showing through. A rattle can is a quick fix and if you have a lot of time on your hands ....well you make your own decision.

Hate to hear that for you. What paint did you use? Several things on my truck have been plasti dipped and are holding up great! The grille has been done since March and has about 8-9k miles on it and is holding up just fine. The grille gets hand washed and pressure washed just like any other part of the truck

Yeah Rayne, that looks way sharp. If I had a black truck thats exactly what I'd do. I have had 3 black dodge trucks in the past and all are sharp, Love the black, just a bitch to keep clean,lol. Besides I was ready for a change and fell in love with the Deep Cherry Red, almost bought another black one though.

Also, the plastic dip method works quite well for those that want the cheap fix, might be a pain in the a$$ doing the honeycomb though..
