Aftermarket Replacement Grilles?

Anyone buy an aftermarket grille on Ebay? The grille on my truck was originally that bogus chrome finish which I painted black, however, it is a pain to keep up with the paint chipping all the time. I have a Grillcraft on the way, and I am considering just buying a black one to use for the install. There are some reasonably priced ones on ebay from a reputable seller. Anyone have experience with replacement grilles?

I don't think that would be a problem. I buy alot of stuff from ebay and craigslist and i only go with the sellers that have good reviews and i haven't been dissapointed yet. I think as long as you stay with the good sellers you'll be fine. Good luck.

Good question. I have asked questions in several areas of this forum about aftermarket grilles and got little response. I saw the billet style grilles from Foryar, a company out of Michigan, with very reasonable prices. Still looking for someone who has purchased any of their products.

The grill I am looking at is just an OEM type replacement. Is it allowed to post links to ebay ads here?

This is the grille: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWAX%3AIT

If it is decent it seems like a good price?

Bought a Black grill for my 2000 from them. Great to deal with and it's priced right. Can't beat it....
