Somebody's gotta know/ Mesh Grill Inserts

Hi, First time posting on forum. Ive exhausted all other options. I am trying to find somewhere to buy Grill Inserts. Looking for mesh or honeycombs grill inserts for a 08 WK Laredo. Hoping to get black but willing to paint them myself if needed. I'm not interested in buying the SRT grill/inserts for crazy money from dealer or Mopar etc. Any help is much appreciated.

Just searched Ebay for "Grand Cherokee grill inserts". Lots of options available. Did you not see anything you liked?

I recently bought this. I primed and painted it with bedliner and now it looks like this.

That looks great. I wouldn't mind one like that. Unfortunately that only fits 05 - 07 WK

I checked ebay and didn't see any Honeycomb, mesh etc. Style grill inserts that will fit my 08 JGC Laredo w/ 3.7. If I'm missing something or if anybody knows where else I could find them let me know. Appreciate any help in advance.

Might be better off finding one for a larger vehicle and cutting it to work. That's what I'm planning on anyway as it seems like there are really limited insert options for WKs.

Or build your own, I'm linking the first two I found, but I've seen more write-ups on this as well.

Thanks for the link to that build thread. I'm definitely considering going that route

$3 piece of small mesh expanded metal from Home Depot will work for the lower portion of the grill.
See Here (pics at the end of the post)

The same material will work for the upper grill too, but you'll have to cut the pieces out for the grill slots. In order to get the mesh pattern to line up right with the lower, you may need 2 pieces for the upper portion. I haven't done my upper portion yet. Only did the lower for condenser protection.

Impulse Fabrication has a honeycomb style grill insert for your WK, yet not as cheap as the Home Depot route but still another option to look at.

It's really a pointless mod. Make it so busy up front nobody will notice.

Poor grammar is something up with which I shall not put.

Thanks for the help. For some reason I just couldn't find this or anything else that fits online or elsewhere. Ordered it already and not so patiently waiting it's arrival. Now I just need to figure out the best way to paint it or what paint to use.
