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

Way to stick with it, that front shot looks awesome. Are the honeycombs in the SRT and Overland grills plastic like the limited or metal?

That look's so much better than the chrome grill, good job.

It looks very good to me, thanks for sharing! What option is this you are referring to?

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

looks good, but 800 to swap in that front grill? What would be the cost of painting the regular chrome grill? j/w

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

SO JEALOUS! I've been wanting to do this since the second I laid eyes on the SRT grill, this looks so good, a little chrome keeps it classy yet the paint to match part makes it not so 'blingy'. What did you pay for the grill and where did you buy it from?

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

How bout some more daytime pics? I'd like to see the fit at all the seams. If I go this route I'm thinking I'll have to disassemble the grille for painting to match my Charcoal gray. From what you've seen do you think this is possible?

I'll post some daytime shots soon. Yeah, anything is possible if you throw enough money at it . The painted front can be easily separated from the plastic mesh by releasing the tabs from the backside. But the chrome trims will have to be carefully mask off before painting I imagin. Good luck.

My bodyshop quoted $150 for painting over chrome, but warned about peeling from rock chips.

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

Very nice writeup here. Even with the difficulties and very slight mis-alignment on the edges, I will say it looks AMAZING installed on the non-SRT!!!
Man, now I want to attempt this mod as well on my Mineral Grey Overland.

I would love to see more pictures and better quality if your able :-)

Does anyone know why JustforJeeps.com does not list the SRT grill in MG yet?

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

You totally read my mind I've been wanting to do this mod for my Laredo for some time now thanks for the tips. Anyone know where to get the chrome lettering on the doors instead of the other plating?
