Re: Bought a grille to color match

the chrome part of the grill will pop off if u pry it, without removing the bumper. Just open the hood and push the clip from behind to help the first couple. Took mine off and wrapped it and the back chrome panel in 3m carbon fiber.....looks great imo

Re: Bought a grille to color match

Member "Father Paul" photoshopped a pic of my JGC with matching grill. It gave me a few ideas. Sort of like this look. From this thread on rock rails: http://www.jeepgarage.org/showthread...tte#post345430

Re: Bought a grille to color match

I didn't really pay attention to the new SRT8s but I just realized it has the grille I would like... body painted with a little chrome:

Only works if you have Bright Silver, Brilliant Black, or Mineral Gray though, or for someone ordering a 2012 in deep cherry.
