    Has anyone ever bought a grill off ebay? I need a new grill so i can cut the center out and put my grillecraft insert in. The clips that hold the bumper filler in are broke and my headlights are hazy and cracker so i found this but was wondering if anyone has ever bought it and how the quality was?

    I bought a black one, unpainted, from partsgeek.com and it was a pretty good fit for the price I paid.

    I have an extra from my front end swap. I would give it to you but you'd probably be f'd by shipping.

    I bought mine from ebay (can't remember the actual dealer, can't look b/c I'm at work and doing my "paperwork") but, it was only $30 w free shipping. Perfect fit and exactly like OEM.

    I bought an unpainted grille off eBay to color match it and put in my grillecraft, it was like $60 or so, good grille, but theres usually a gap between the hood and the top of the grille no matter how much you fiddle with the rubber things that support the hood when it's down :/
