Wrong color altitude grill :(

Well I surprised my wife w/ an altitude grill on her black WK2 because I didn't care for the grayish one it came with. Well dumb me didn't think about maybe there'd be 2 blacks. So my surprise turned out to be "why does that look like it's the wrong color, I don't like it" and a big frown on her face.

The PX8 grill (regular black) looks BAD on the PXR color (brilliant black). Reminds me of some bad paint matching I've seen on some hoods running around town.

Sooooo looks like I'll be buying another grill. Hopefully I can sell the other 2...

Why can't you return it and exchange it for the PXR version?

Re: Wrong color altitude grill :(

I had the dealership install it on the jeep as part of me buying the vehicle. I never saw the grill before they put it on. Unfortunately, I gave them the part number. My mistake.

Yeah craigslist, ebay, or here is the plan for the 2 other ones...

Wow they do have good prices, I'll see if the local stealership will price match that. If not I'll just order it from them and save me a trip.

Yes I have the gray one. I'm not sure how it's painted gray tho. The sahara wheels are painted the same, I didn't really look at it up close. Could be dipped, rattled, or professional... no telling! I'll check it out tomorrow if I have time, if not this weekend and get back with you.
