Re: painted grille

Between the two I would paint it black. I don't think the paint to match route would look as good.

Re: painted grille

I painted mine the same color as the body. One of the best things i did. I think it completely changed the look for the better.

Re: painted grille

I can't tell if your trucks is Charcoal gray or Tan, if its Charcoal gray I would paint the entire grill, but if its Tan I would just paint the grill like this. Click the link below.

Re: painted grille

I'd leave it chrome if it's tan.

Re: painted grille

My bad, I thought you were talking about the chrome part. I painted the chrome part of mine arizona biege and the middle black. I also painted all the grey plastic black to match (lower valance). I think it looks good especially because the body colors are arizona biege over black.

It's tan. I really like that look! I think that's what I am going to go with. I like the chrome with the paint matched inner part.
