Rugged Ridge black grill inserts

Anyone have these? I was thinking of getting some and painting my headlight bezels black. I have a green jeep and think they would look good. I like them much more than the chrome ones.

Got a set a few years ago for Christmas. They work great for helping protect the radiator from bugs, gravel, etc. When I traded Jeeps, I took the inserts with me.

Well I ordered them. When I get them on I decide if I wont to paint the light bezels or not. I think I might tint the blinkers also.

if you decide to paint your headlight bezels, i suggest using plasti-dip. i painted mine with this two years ago and no chips or cracks yet
