Lower chrome grill by tow hooks
 
I Have a 2011 Grand Cherokee Overland, just installed the summit grill on it, looks great, But I am desperatley looking for a way to chrome the lower griil by the tow hooks, I think this would look great, any one have any ideas or know of an insert to match chrome summit grille, I would try to paint but dont think it would look good.

Thans

I think the only way to get a perfect match is to get another Summit grill and cut it to fit.

Check out Ablaze Grilles. A member ask the same question and he thought he could do something.

I wanted to get the Summit grill but matching the chrome mesh to the lower grill mesh is what has been holding me back. After I saw this post I decided to talk with Ablaze Grills and they seem to be able to do this.

I have included a picture that they sent me showing the lower grill application. Also included are pictures of the closest match mesh for the Summit grill that they have. I measured my Overland grill and the measurements from the example pics seem to be the same. They also said that they can make the diamond pattern horizontal or vertical to match. Price is $165 for the lower grill insert.

What do you guys think?? I really dont want it to end up looking like 2 completley different kinds of chrome mesh. Ablaze mentioned that they did this exact application for a fellow Jeep Garage forum member.. Any idea on who this was or pics??

When I had my (2) SRT8 Jeeps, I remember coming across a forum member who had his factory plastic mesh grille chromed.

You'd need to find a way to do that to the bottom of your grille. I've already thought about doing it, but it seems like a PITA
