Black mesh inner grill

I have a 2013 Altitude, and am looking to replace the chrome inner mesh on the grill, with black mesh. Any idea's on where to get this item cheap? Or do I need to buy a complete grill with the black mesh that I want, and swap out that part for my part? Any help would be appreciated, after a 45 minute visit to the parts department, at the local, they were zero help! I would even trade my chrome inner mesh for somebody's black inner mesh! Help a brotha out!

Re: Black mesh inner grill

yep...youll probably have to buy a whole grille or ttrade with someone. You could try Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market for a used grille and then swap the mesh out

Re: Black mesh inner grill

Just buy the black insert from Ablaze (vendor here). Sell yours, and you might not be out much (especially if you say it's from an "Altitude").

Re: Black mesh inner grill

You need the front grill assembly from a Limited or Overland, (Not Overland Summit). Might try to trade with someone who would like the chrome "Summit" front grill look.

You can unclip the painted grill face or shell of your Altitude front grill from the Altitude platinum chrome inner mesh grill assembly and swap the inner mesh assembly with someone who has a black mesh Limited or Overland inner grill.

They would keep their chrome grill face to mate w/your platinum chrome inner grill assembly & you would keep your painted Altitude grill face to match with their black inner grill assembly. I'm sure many who like the Overland Summit Chrome front grill would be eager to do this swap!

Check out this thread with pics to better understand what I mean;

About to paint my own grill and rear brow--Need Help!!

Re: Black mesh inner grill

Yep, that is the plan, just want to swap out the chrome mesh portion on my grill to a black mesh one. Biggest issue for me is the finding of a black mesh one, a grill with black mesh, or somebody that wants to trade the mesh portion, and of course I really, really don't want to take the bumper off because these things never go back the way they were, and I will end up will a drooping bumper or uneven gaps or something and this will really piss me off! If my dealer wasn't so inept at finding the part, I might have some faith that they could swap the part out for me, but if they can't even find it, I can't imagine that they can change it! This is the one and only last tiny detail before my car is complete, and this sucks!

The bumper has to be removed to swap the inner mesh.

Re: Black mesh inner grill

Yep, no way to remove the inner mesh without removing the entire front grill assembly!

Re: Black mesh inner grill

Thanks for all the help, info, and replies everybody! I ran down and talked to a paint shop that paints high end hot rods and custom rides around here, and he will be painting the mesh, lower lip, and the chrome trim around the windows on Tuesday. Solved all of my issues with one stop!

I will. Won't be done until Tuesday, but it's also raining all next weeks and I won't post pics until she's spit shined!
