TJ Rounded chrome grill inserts

All the chrome inserts I've seen for the TJ make the grill holes look more square. Anyone know of a chrome grill kit that gives a more rounded look - a bit like the JK?

The only things on a Jeep that should be chrome are the wrenches in your toolbox!

That is because TJ grille openings are squared, JK's are rounded.... Granted you can probably fit a round peg in a square hole, but not the other way around. If you feel you must put chrome on your TJ, you might see if the JK inserts will fit.... Idk.

Why would you want your TJ to look like a JK?

The standard grill holes look more rounded than my inserts and you guys have persuaded me to remove the chrome inserts!

You don't necessarily have to remove them... Mine were chrome and I just scuffed & painted that ugly outta them.
And I never really paid attention to a JK enough to notice, but I see what ya mean about the more round look to the openings. Don't forget.... they're plastic.... our grills are steel!!
