Jeep Cherokee Chrome Grill?

I have been having a hell of a time trying to find a chrome grill for my Jeep Cherokee 98 Sport. I've even seen a guy with one and followed him home hoping he would tell me the place he bought it but he had bought the Jeep with it. =/ Anyways do any of you know of an online dealer where I could order such thing? Any help is awesome!

here's a brushed aluminum one, I don't see a chrome one either.

call some auto parts stores and find one that has a Keystone catalog, they don't sell retail just wholesale to stores but I think they will probably have a chrome one.

Oh that looks really sharp. I guess I didn't get the terminology right (noob). It isn't just the actual grill that I'm looking for in chrome, but also the outter lining which also goes around the headlights. Thanks though for the url... think i'll get that as well!

Front of my Laredo is chrome .
I saw a few at the junkyard today actually with chrome grills/bezels. You might be well off taking a look at some place like that. Otherwise an auto body shop could order them for you but yeah, it would be expensive.

Go to eBay and do a search for "cherokee chrome grille". Looks like it'll cost just under $50.

The reason I had even wanted to go with the chrome is because I also had a 90' cherokee laredo with the chrome and it looked so nice. Sadly it met a sink hole while 4x4'n.

no no.. was on a windy gravel road hauling ***, caught the inside of a turn too close and hit some heavy gravel... did a 180 and backed right into a sink hole arching the entire frame... luckily the towing hitch saved the gas tank from being exposed. Lets just say i made sure my next jeep had a tow hitch. Told the insurance company that a small animal ran out into the road and i tried to avoid it losing control.. they gave me blue book price.. suckers

Indeed. Ever wonder why responsible drivers get screwed by high insurance costs? FRAUD. I lived next door to this idiot back in NYC that was SOOO proud of himself for gypin' $40,000 from his insurance company by staging a house burglary.... of course he and his friends thought it was so smart. Then he moved and couldn't get insurance that was remotely reasonbly priced and was for real ripped off... all his nice old stuff and all his nice new stuff!!! My wife and I were in tears laughing at the irony/justice. Fraud screws all of us... so be cool.

Would it really make any difference to the insurance company if a small animal was involved or if you just lost control due to bad road conditions? You are paying for collision insurance, which is only used when its YOUR FAULT! I've known people who got paid by their insurance company when they hit a concrete lane divider because the weren't paying attention to where the hell they were going, no critters involved or claimed.
