Default Color match grille

Hey guys I've been debating the color match grille idea for a couple o days, or maybe a billet grille or something. The only reason being, I'm not much of a chrome fanatic lol and I want my truck to be black and blue Rollin down the road like a bruise lol but let me know what y'all would do, thank you in advance

I'd do it. Do you plan on buying another grille or painting your current one?

you may want to check ur VIN tag on the door to verify year to make sure u didnt get hosed.

Or someone f'ed up and ordered the wrong lights to fix it if it was an accident.
