Different grills for sport compared to limited, classic

Being that the limited and classic grills are painted, are they different than the sports? I know they look the same but I was just wondering if the slats in the grill are removable to paint in the classics and limited?

I'm sorry for the stupid question. Seems like they would be the same but it would suck to mask off all the slats to paint.

Id say they are the same. And '99+ Sport model grilles are colormatched too.

Yeah, ive been searching.. It seems they are all the same part number from jeep unless you ordered a color matched one which are different numbers due to different colors of paint.

Reason why I am asking my dad owns a body shop and just scheduled a job to shoot flame red. I am going to have him paint my grill didn't know if I'd be better off buying a new grill with removable slats (from a design state sound like it should be that way) but guess all of them seem to be one peice grill.

Chime in if you know otherwise.

Im pretty sure they are all the same, Ive also had a Moss Green 97 Classic (colormatched grille) and Moss Green 98 Sport (black grille). Dont recall any difference at all, they are all one piece. The slats have to be masked off. It is kinda of tedious work but its a must if you dont enjoy a very obvious "yeeaaaa thats been repainted" kinda look.

They're all the same aside from crossover years.
