Chrome Grille Overlay (Compass)

Does anyone know if this exists or have word that one will be released?

I'm thinking of something like this (from the Liberty):



Any leads would be appreciated.

that does look nice, especially on the black color

Installing HID's in stock housings is bad. Here is why.

Pretty solid mod for only $11.99
I should have posted it with the message the first time around. I just figured out how to put in a quote from another thread!!

he could get more of those rolls, cut them to size, and sell them on ebay as a compass specific kit for twice what he paid...

What did you use on the grill? IT does look nice. I have a black Limited and would love to do that to mine also.

Personally not a fan but what ever floats your boat. I like my $20 "Chrome Grills" referenced above which I made over this which goes for about $90
