2012 front trailhawk grill on a limited - less chrome

All,

I'm trying to have less chrome on my limited at the front end, and I would really like the SRT front grill - however requires some modifications to get it fitted.

I have the mineral grey GC and just realized the TrailHawks have a mineral grey front grill.

What are your thoughts if I change my grill with a mineral grey, making it matching the entire car. Would it look corny? - It is much cheaper than adopting the SRT front grill with no mods required.

I think it would look great. I'm going to do the altitude grill and rear brow on my silver Laredo.

I just asked the same thing a couple of days ago. There's a Grand Cherokee with a mineral grey color matched grille over in the members show off thread. Looks great. Do it!

Re: 2012 front trailhawk grill on a limited - less chrome

Do it, including the mirrors.

Pics are here:

Paint-matched Grille & Tow-Hook Install

However, I did not install the trailhawk grille because I wanted mine color-matched

Looking Good Moose!!

Looks great guys, especially with that SRT hood!

I think I will opt for the Trailhawk gril as it includes the honeycomb mesh. I'm not good with painting.
