Default Chrome grill inserts

Not sure if this is the right place to put this but I REALLY want to get some of those chrome grill inserts for my grill. I have a 2011 Outdoorsman and the frame of the grill is color matched to the truck and the "honey comb" inserts are black. I think chrome inserts would look great! I would prefer to have the vertical or horizontal chrome bar inserts but I don't think they will work with the stock honeycomb grill will it? Anyway, where can I get the chrome honeycomb inserts cheaper than the crazy $120+ price tag I have been seeing

Where are you located? Looking for a trade? I understand the inserts are removable from the frame so you might arrange a trade with someone here.

I would like to just keep all my original parts for my truck I think.. I saw a video some where of the inserts being installed and it looked like they just snapped on over the stock black ones? Now I am hearing that I have to remove the stock black ones before installing chrome ones.. I'm confused now, guess I will have to check in to it some more when the money is right for messing with the truck again. I do have a kid on the way and she will be here in about 3 months, thus the main reason I went out and bought a new truck in the first place! lol

I think you are right about removing the stock inserts to replace them.

Where did you see these for $120??? And have you talked to a dealer?

MOPARPartsonline here can hook you up with any chrome inserts that are stock options.

I think I saw some on ebay and maybe even mopars website? $120 is just the price that popped in my head when I posted this.
EDIT:
It appears they are going for about $180-$200ish so I am not sure where $120 came from... Thats even worse!

I'd trade you my chrome insert for the black honey comb one. Not sure where you are located though, I'm in CT.

Yea you have to remove the inserts by popping out a bunch of little tabs. I have done it 3 times now and seems to get easier each time.

Your best bet is a trade to someone in driving distance. I was going to swap with someone in texas but it was $100 to package and ship UPS.
