Default Chrome grill on a 2011 Sport?

Last week I saw a 2010/11 Ranger Sport 2X4 just like mine except that it had a chrome grill instead of the body colored grill that come stock. Some people may think I am crazy, but I really like the way that chrome grill looked with the white paint job better than the stock white grill.

Does anyone have a picture of a late model Ranger Sport with a chrome grill they can post.

When I look on Ebay, all of the chrome grill covers say they will not fit a Sport model. Is that true, because I see no difference between a 2010/11 Xl, XLT, and a Sport grill except for the color?

2006-2011 chrome grille will fit.
If it is just a cover then you dont want that as in it just covers over your existing grille.

Look on www.car-part.com it will search all salvage yards in your state.

By the way I have the grille you are looking for on my 2005 Edge. (see my avatar)



It will be hard to find a white sport with the chrome grille on it unless the owner swapped it out. Since the sport comes from the factory with color matched grille.

Here is a white truck with the chrome grille.





Here is one on ebay. I know you can get them cheaper through a salvage yard. You may also try certifit.com however they dont ship so unless one is close by that wont be a option.

chrome looks so sweet, especially over body colored, good luck with your search and installation.

I like the body colored grills too, but I think a chrome grill on a white ranger Sport gives it just a little something "extra". A chrome grill along with the bright aluminum factory wheels would give my Sport just a little extra "something" to break up the monotone paint job.
