you could possibly swap with someone the st trucks are flat black from the factory and easy to paint. if you have an 07-08 then maybe we can work something out. you wont have to strip it. sand, prime, paint. look on ebay for the bull bars i think they are like 250.00 maybe cheaper.

i have an 07 with the chrome shell, i was also wondering if i could just get a shell from a sport b/c i believe those are black. i would like a black shell and inserts i just don't know what would be cheaper.

the sport shells are already painted so probably not. i think the st grills are in demand because they are a flat black andyou wont have to strip the chrome off. i have no idea what it would cost to paint one though

i wish they would rattle can my paint code(pxr) duplicolor said that the code must be at least 10% of the manufacturers production. i would do so much more if i had a compressor and hplv gun.

Check your local dealer. Last I knew of you could get any paint code in a spray can for like $10. Thats where i picked up a can when I was painting a few small things.

I just picked up a set of factory Dodge black grill inserts from an 08 TRX4 off of eBay. Going to change from the chrome inserts to the black when the weather gets a little warmer. My chrome inserts will be up for grabs when I change over.

Wow I didn't know you could get factory paint in a spray can! Thanks for the tip guys, I know that I will be doing some paint soon now!

06QuadRam: A how-to on the process you use to paint your chrome grille would be awsome, I'd like to read it.
