That's what I mean, paint the body black to match the lower trim. What's the factory color name of the one on your Jeep?

Re: what color should i paint my new grille?

thats a lot of work to paint the entire Jeep, plus i do like my color which is Platinum Metallic (PS4) '99 was the only year for the WJ with this color.
i believe the '98 ZJ had it too on the 5.9L limited and maybe other models.

-if i could have a different color Jeep it would be painted white like a limited

Oh, too bad the entire body isn't the Platinum Metallic, I bet it would look sick like that.

Re: what color should i paint my new grille?

I know I wanted to paint all the cladding to match, but like I said the black was easier...

I understand, I just prefer a unified look. Good luck with whatever you decide to do

Personally, I think body color would look the best. I'm sure you'll love whatever you choose though!
