Thanks! I wish you had the color matched grille too. It seems like I have the only deep cherry red truck with color matched grille! lol I love it though, and I worry that I might spend about $200 on the chrome inserts and then come to find out that no one will really even notice a change since the honeycomb inserts are pretty small and thin...

Have u considered the horizontal grill insert. I like how they look with the colormatched.



Here is the best I could find in honeycomb color matched.

No they do not screw into the shell. The old gen trucks had inserts that screwed in (very easy to change), the 4th gens clip in. A real PITA but it can be done if you take your time. It's been a while but I'll bet there are close to 30 or so tabs you have to disengage to remove the inserts. Changed mine a few times so I guarantee that is how they are held into the shell. In fact, found this picture I had taken of a set of inserts. The chrome bars or honeycomb is the same in the way it attaches. As you can see, it is one complete assembly where the older trucks had 4 separate inserts.

If someone is looking for a chrome shell with chrome honeycomb inserts like the Laramie, a while back you couldn't give them away. The Sports were coming from the factory with them so we were replacing them with color matched grills. So you may find someone with one sitting in their garage. Think I got like $135 shipped or so for mine, was like brand new. Lots of others sold for about the same price. List is in the $500-600 range. Would be crazy to pay that if you can just swap the inserts in your shell.

Are you talking about the outer shell? The horizontal inserts are chrome. So you could just remove them and install into a new chrome shell (instead of body color) if that is what you are asking.

The cheapest way would be to find someone that changed their chrome grille with a color matched one. Shipping would be kinda pricey though as the box is pretty large.

Here is a picture of a white Sport with the chrome shell. You would have the horizontal inserts though which would make it look a little bit different. I prefer the way your Sport came from the factory, with the painted shell. But variety is the spice of life.
