Grill idea for WK...

So I just picked up my White '06 Jeep GC Laredo. I love it, 65k miles, leather, sunroof, heated seats(dont need them in FL usually) its only 2wd and a V6 which is all I need in South FL. All I have done to it so far is a stubby antenna which cleaned it up a lot. H&R springs in the mail so it will be lowered slightly next week. Got some Stillen headlight covers I need painted and next up is my grill.

I cant find something I REALLY like for white. I dont want to just do everything black, I find it tasteless honestly. Its a nice contrast but a bit TOO much. I am thinking about painting it black but getting this chrome insert:
06 07 Jeep Grand Cherokee Chrome Grille Insert Overlay | eBay
While I have it out for paint I will also be putting the diamond style mesh from Home Depot in there for the sportier look.

I took a pic off the ebay listing and added black to the grill to see how it would look, unfortunatley its on a red WK but it still shows the contrast I am going for. I think the chrome will break it up nicely and would like to know what yall think of it. Dont judge my crude photoshop lol havent used it in a while.

Heres the Jeep as it sits right now, I plan on getting the chrome/limited door rub strips and SRT side skirts. Probably going to do polished 20" SRT reps when these tires are toast.

I say go for it. See how it looks and if you don't like it you can always change it out. Good luck!

Re: Grill idea for WK...

Yea I just dont wanna throw $80 down the drain if I dont like it lol. Im thinking I will plastidip it black and do the mesh mod and if I am not happy buy this. My Wife thinks I should just go with the chrome grill and do the mesh, but she is into the chrome. Her Jeep Liberty KK is Black and all chromed out, I will post pics of her ride when I get a chance.

I figure with plastidip if I dont like it I can always remove it.

My other idea was to tape off the inner rings between the slots so they stay white and paint the grill black. This way it gives a little bit of the WK2 look. I really cant make up my mind lol. Thanks for the reply and support. If anyone else has input dont be shy!
