Best Place For Black Grill Inserts

Mod money's tight, and I can't seem too find any deals on black grill inserts for my Islander. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Most people use black plastic gutter guard or something like it from Home Depot. Then some zip ties and zip tie bases. If you search, you should find a bunch of how to's

Roll of diamond lath = $5
Tin of black spray paint = $8
25 zip tie blocks + zip ties = $6

Black grill inserts for less than $20.

Thanks, all, but I'm thinking more like the Rugged Ridge ones.

I found the Rampage grill insert on Amazon Warehouse for $56. Great deal. Pays to look and wait for someone to return one.

Are you thinking mesh or billet? Quadratec just came out (at least i think they are new) with their own aluminum billet inserts... Very reasonably priced too... $69.99 vs some of these others that can run upwards of $300.... Link below:

Mine were on the high end, but I love them so they were worth it in my mind.

So that's the right item, it's just that Amazon shipped the wrong one?
