Help! Really want to get black grille for WK2 Laredo X. Any ideas

Just bought a black '12 laredo X. I am looking to get rid of the chrome grille and add an all black one. I have been searching the internet and I cannot find one. I would really appreciate some help! This is my first post on the site. Thanks!

Dip it. Looks pretty easy, and only as permanent as you want it to be.

Search and read, read, read...if all things fail, send it to Scott's Paint and Performance. I did and he's a vendor here.

You could wait for the new blacked out edition grill to become available.

Drive around to your local body shops and ask them if they would sand off the chrome and paint it. Most shops won't do it but you only need to find one. I bought an overland grille from a member here that upgraded their grill to a summit and sold me their old one. That way you could have the shop paint and it and not have to leave it at the shop. Plus in my opinion the diamond cut overland grille looks better than the vertical laredo / limited grille.

Sounds like a good idea as well, although I am not a fan of the semi chrome grille insert that comes with the new black edition grille.

I'm not either. I'll replace that with my Overland grille insert.
