'11-'13 Matching grill inserts and lower fascia

I have a 2012 Limited and I am looking to swap out the chrome grill for one in brilliant black. All of the ones I have seen (part number 1ZW79AXRAB) look like they have chrome diamond mesh inserts. Are there black versions of these available? I can't seem to find them or a part number anywhere. What I would like to do is match the same black diamond mesh that's used in the lower fascia cover.



I'd actually prefer black honeycomb inserts in both places but I can only find them for the main grill. As far as I can tell, the one available for the lower fascia only comes with an adaptive cruise control cutout. I don't have that option on my Limited.



My Limited has tow hooks so I would really only be looking for that center insert.

Thanks for the help.

Check out ebay item number 171376914285. Aftermarket grille, but it might be what your are looking for. The only way to get the honeycomb look in your grille is to purchase an SRT grille, model years 2012 and 2013. Some trimming of the bumper cover is required to get it to fit properly.

I also cut out my diamond shaped inserts on my lower grille and plastic welded some honeycomb material in that spot.

Yup, that's what I am looking for. Thank you for the link. A little worried about how a non Mopar grill will fit. I bought a knockoff of the back step surround and it was just a little off and could never fully clip into place. The price is sure right though.

I've been doing a little more digging and it looks like the Trailhawk has the inserts I am looking for:



However, I don't see them sold separately. I don't have any experience but I can assume that the inserts from 14-15 grills don't fit 11-13, correct?

Thanks

That's correct. The inserts from 2014 and up will not work with the 2011 to 2013 grilles.

Looks like these were also available on the Australian (maybe?) version as well. Still trying to track down a part number, if there is one.

Overland grill will work too if you're just looking for the inserts. I have the 11-13 inserts for the upper grill if you need them. OEM overland. PM me if interested.
