    So, a few weeks ago I rear-ended another vehicle during a snow storm. When I took my truck in for collision repair, I had them paint the grille insert black to match the other accents on the truck. It's no Satoshi or Grillecraft, but looks better than the original (IMHO). Photos attached.

    The centerpiece of the grille; the part that's a funky gray(?) from the factory.
