Honeycomb grill inserts for 11-13?

Looking to color match my overland grill and would like to add the honeycomb style inserts like the 14+ version. Does anyone know of a company that happens to make this style of insert for the 11-13 version?

I also wonder if the 12/13 SRT inserts could be modified to work?

Re: Honeycomb grill inserts for 11-13?

I put the 2012 SRT 8 grille on my 2011.

SRT8 Grill on Non-SRT8 GCs... first try.

Cutting of the grille backing is required. I scoured the internet for inserts that would work, but came up empty.

I also tried just the honeycomb backing with the stock decorative front. It kind of works, but the fit isn't great. It only snaps in on the top; not the bottom and the angle is off a bit.

Re: Honeycomb grill inserts for 11-13?

Thanks for the info...THat looks great. EVen with the lines slightly off, I don't think it's all that noticeable and someone would have to really be looking for it.


Regarding the SRT grill, I thought there was much more to it to make it remotely work as I looked into a couple years ago. So really the only thing you did is cut part of the grill backing to make it fit correctly? Do the mesh inserts also need cutting?

Only issue now is trying to match the lower mesh to the honeycomb style.



Thanks again!
