Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
Why you guys trying to swap them? You just want the color matched instead of chrome?

I think some of the none SRT guys like the color matched w/ the chrome outline that the stock SRT's have. I just like the color matched grille with no chrome. Plus I think a lot of guys want that factory paint vs paint over chrome or sanded chrome then paint

Re: SRT8 Grill on No-SRT8 GCs... first try.

Makes sense. I'm not a fan of a lot of chrome. That chrome grill does seem to be a bit much.

Exactly! In addition, besides all black, i'm afraid color matching the front grille might start to resemble the Compass.

Re: SRT8 Grill on No-SRT8 GCs... first try.

Ok boys, it took a couple bodyshop hours and they charged me $100 cash to have it fitted. They had to trim off approximately half an inch from the inner corners of the bumper (see red arrows in 2nd photo) to install the bumper properly with the SRT8 grill on the car. Unfortunately the edges on the grill still do not match up with the bumpers'. One solution I can think of is to add spacers between painted part of the grill and the plastic honeycomb base in an attempt to line up the edges. But again, that would leave gaps between the two..hmmm.

Considering $$ and time I spent on it, the option of painted grill with chrome mesh is starting to look pretty good too . Cheers.
