    What about painting the one you've got? Sand the chrome well and use a self etching primer done for less than $100.

    I second that opinion. I mean you're going to discard it anyway if you buy a replacement so why not?

    From what I've read, those cheap grills from bays are of pretty low quality. But then again, you can't beat the price.

    I think a little chrome on black truck looks pretty good. I think whatever you decide to do to the grille surround you will want to do it to the bumper.
