Seconded... Does anyone know if these inserts will fit into the Altitude grille?

Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude Grille - Brilliant Black (1ZW79AXRAA) = $363.66
Jeep Grand Cherokee Black Honeycomb Grill Inserts (68143074AD) = $42.81

Alternatively, does anyone know if you can install the Black Vapor & Alpine SRT8 Grand Cherokee Grill (5NK26AXRAB). I found it at All Mopar Parts, and emailed the owner who said it would fit a 2012 Jeep Grand Chrokee Larado. I then saw it at Just for Jeeps, where it lists it as an SRT8 model. I'm under the impression that the SRT8 grilles won't fit non-SRT models.

Re: Help new 2013 grand cherokee trim modifications

I checked with someone at justforjeeps.com, and they had the following to say about the Jeep Grand Cherokee Black Honeycomb Grill Inserts (68143074AD):

> Unfortunately these honeycomb inserts only fit the new grill design on the 2014 Grand Cherokees, sorry.

Using this VIN, the parts desk at my Jeep dealer found that the part numbers where "greyed out", and not something they could order. They are calling Mopar and getting back to me on this.
Mopar only makes the body side molding in Chrome. I believe the 2012 Altitude didn't have body side molding, and instead had lettering similar to the 2014 models. I'm looking into simply removing the current molding, and putting in the 2014 lettering, or replacing it with after-market body color painted body side molding. I found some on ebay here, and also at Sportwing.com here.

I'm curious if I can simply remove the body side molding and leave it as-is, or if that will expose holes in the doors where there are clips to hold it on, as in the 2009 era grand cherokee. Anyone know?

Based on pictures and responses from others, it looks like they're just held on with double-sided tape. I'll respond back, if that's the case.

Re: Help new 2013 grand cherokee trim modifications

So, this one looks like it comes with the honeycomb inserts? And it doesn't not specify which sub models it fits (laradeo, limited, altitude, SRT...). Anyone have any input on this? I tried messaging the website contact page.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Grille - Brilliant Black PXR (Part No: 5NK26AXRAB)

I've already spoken to the site owner, who said it would fit a 2012 larado. However, I found the same part number on another site that listed it as the SRT model grill, which is consistent with my understanding. I'm not sure if the SRT grills fit non-SRT models, given that it has a different bumper. I'd be curious to hear back from you, if you go this route. I'm planning to talk to a local parts dealer, who has one of these and a stock chrome larado version, to see if I can examine both and compare them for fit. I'll post back, if I can prove or disprove a fit.

Re: Help new 2013 grand cherokee trim modifications

I'm weary of purchasing it and it not fitting my 2013 limited. But if he says it fits a 2012 laradeo, it should fit. And the price is right! Even with the grill inserts! Keep me updated on what you find and I'll see what they say too.

Re: Help new 2013 grand cherokee trim modifications

Just got a message back that stated "Yes, this fits your model. Thanks, Mike D." Must be true.

If you purchase it and install it, please let us know how it turns out.

Re: Help new 2013 grand cherokee trim modifications

Guys and Gals, I did indeed order this and it should be here today! I plan to make sure eveything looks to be the same and install tonight or tomorrow. I'll keep you updated.

I purchased this at my local dealer over the weekend. It appears to be identical in size/shape to the original 2012 Larado grill. I was able to compare it to the stock replacement part. I'll be installing this weekend as well.

Measures right up, and it looks even better than I though it would. I'm installing tomorrow!
