black grill inserts?
 
I've seen the post for for painting the black headlight bezels but I was wondering where I might find the black grill inserts. Oh and I'm planning on painting the bezels so should I use a gloss or satin black?

Rugged Ridge makes the grill inserts. Pricey pieces of plastic

Walkeraviator 07-30-2007 09:31 PM

Here are the inserts for sale at Quadratec.. and like he said, overpriced chunks of plastic.

Thanks a ton guys! I like them but that IS pricey... :(

That bumper is pretty sweet too. I think I like it better than the HighRock4x4 bumper. What do you think?

Walkeraviator 07-30-2007 09:41 PM

I am partial to Olympic, Warn, and Garvin. They are all sweet.

RIPBiker13 07-30-2007 10:22 PM

I happen to have that mag. I'm gonna look real quick! :D

RIPBiker13 07-30-2007 10:53 PM

I found the aluminum black inserts for $74.99 and the headlight bezels for $29.99 but no deal to get them both.

hell, just paint the whole grill black and call it a day...actually I am thinking of rhino-lining my grill.

Of course - I want to get my grill lined as well.

Just make sure you don't paint over the mounting holes and you are good to go. As soon as my buddy gets ready to rhino line his interior we are going to do my grill at the same time.

Double check these. If you look at the upper description it says aluminum, if you look at the lower description it says plastic. I called them on this some time ago and after them pulling a set off of the shelf they confirmed that they were plastic. FWIW. Scooby
