black grill overlay?

anyone know where i can get a black grill overlay? all i can seem to find is chrome ones. when i say overlay i mean the section that has the slots and goes around the headlights. also is it too much of a hassle to take it off and paint it yourself? my gf's dad has a paint booth and he could paint it easily.

Heck if you got a painter in the family, nothing to painting it. Sand, prime, sand, paint.

Or you could even line it instead. Just scuff the chrome to give the liner something to grab onto, and shoot it. Would hold up better then paint.

There is a black plastic one out there. I forgot who makes it. As indicated above, paint it. You don't need to take it off. Tape and mask it.

Looking for one too

Jeep I bought had one, but it was cracked and in pieces, and I'd like to get another.

I know Mr. Grille makes one for the TJ that is listed on the Quadratec site, but I haven't found one for the YJ yet...
