Are all non-SRT grill shells the same?
 
Can someone confirm whether or not all the non-SRT grills are the same (Laredo, Limited, Overland, Overland Summit)? I'm only referring to the chrome part, not the inserts (I know they are different). I have an Overland Summit and am considering painting the chrome surround but would like to purchase a second grill for the painting in case I don't love it, and do not want to have to spend the full amount on Summit grill.

Im not sure. I'd photoshop a picture first to see if you like it before attempting. What color do you want to paint it?

White gold (the color of my GC)

Not a Summit, but you get the idea. Looks good to me.

Thanks Chris! For both the pic and the answer! I was trying to play with a pic of my jeep but couldn't get the grill to look right, it looked like it was gold plated :-/

I sometimes wish I paint mine too. The chrome is really of poor quality and i already see spots and marks. My last Jeep's chrome grille weathered the elements much better.

Are you planning on painting it yourself or giving it to a body shop? Please post pictures after you paint them.

As much as I like the little chrome on my MG Jeep, I hate the spots and discoloration.

Cheers,
