Welcome to the forum! Since you are posting in this section, I'm assuming you have a TJ.
TJ's have mostly one option - inserts. Most folks buy the inserts online, and just place them into the slot in the grill. See below pic.
Some have fabricated a one piece grill to use on the inside, between the radiator and the grill. This is significantly more difficult because you have to remove the radiator in order to get anything that would hold up, inserted between them. But, this could be a lot cheaper, and personally, much better looking.
Keep searching here on the forum. You'll get lots of ideas on how to make it cheap, and make it your own.
