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.
Hi Mate,
I am also going to put the srt8 front grill on my overland, just one thing is there a finger sized gap under the grill to the bumper. Looks like it doesnt sit down enough, but its hard to see in the photos.Would you be able to show a couple of phots in the light.
Im in Australia and the price for a srt8 grill here is 1.5k so I wanna make sure its going to fit.
Cheers Gidge

Hi Rlinder
Please don't forget to post some daytime photos of that wonderful work.
I have a 2012 limited and I would like to swap to SRT8 grill. It has prefect proportion between body color and not much chrome.
I'm thinking to do the work by myself following your tips.
Just one question. Just in case you have to revert the work to original stage is it possible after trim the bumper inner corners ??
Thanks a lot

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

Now that the grill has changed on the 2014/15 SRT, has anyone tried this with the new style grill? I'd love to get a black grill frame like the new SRT on my new overland.

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

Pics? I've got a black 2013 Laredo that I was thinking of doing the same thing to. But was also thinking of putting the Overland mineral grey grill on the front. What do you think about the black/grey combination? I'm assuming if I went with the overland grill I wouldn't have to do the trimming on the bumper?

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

Hey does anyone know if I could match up the 2012 SRT front end and grille to my 2012 Laredo? I need to replace my grille and bumper due to an accident and was hoping to be able to get the SRT front end.

You can but you'll have to add the fender flares and side skirts.

I see would you happen to know how much those are or maybe have a part number? I can't seem to find them online
