Re: Swapping SRT8 Mesh W/Your Own Stock Grill Trim.

That's an 06-07 SRT grill? Mine has some additional plastic on top that extends into the engine bay. I wish I could do like the Race Mesh Grill without the cost!

Well I have an 05 WK, and the srt grill I swapped out was listed for an 06-07. Im sure an 08 srt mesh can be swapped with any 08-09 WK trim.

I was just looking thru all the "how to's" stickies and remembered I wrote this thread and a few people wrote me after asking how easy was it to do. Like I wrote before, I first saw a red srt grill on ebay and wondered if I could just swap out the trim or if i'd have to get it painted, I couldnt find any info giving me a def answer so I just bought it and experimented on the srt grill and it worked perfect.

Re: Swapping SRT8 Mesh W/Your Own Stock Grill Trim.

I really love how the SRT mesh looks, but since have seen some great write-ups from people making their own using a roll of mesh stock from Homedepot. I admit some I do not like, the ones where a small thin gauge mesh is used and the openings are small, like chicken wire. Using a Google search I stumbled across some really nice heavy duty thicker mesh with big honeycombs which match the SRT mesh exactly, but its pricey.
