Wink Replace front grill...

My new, to me, 2007 X...3.8L Wrangler came to me with lots of little pebble damage on the front grill and windshield from winter road pebbles. Anyone have any suggestions at a vendor or brand to replace the grill oh and more importantly need to replace my JEEP emblem. Can this be done easily? Where to get the replacments..Jeep? ANd what kind of a Wrangler do I have? JK? etc...first am waking up a Wrangler owner in 22 years..Lovin' it. Want to start playing.
thanks, Carson

(Its different but it still applys to the subject)

Back when I got into an accident with my old XJ the grill was all cracked and broken and horrible looking, so I found a grey one on craigslist, painted it black, and installed it the only problem was that it didn't come with the "JEEP" logo. Walmart sells a small tube of "Accent Adhesive" which is the same stuff they use to attach the decals at the factory, so I just scraped off the old logo, cleaned up the back, and applied it to the new grill. Its really easy

You have a JK, they started making them in 2007, and they sell grill overlays that are abs plastic and look great if you wanna go the cheaper route... just a thought, I think quadratec sells them, but you can probably find it cheaper on another site.

If it's only dings, chips, & scratches (ie no cracks), why not just sand it down and repaint it yourself?
