Grille swap

Hi I'm a new jeep renegade limited owner as of last week, I'm impressed so far despite it doing terribly on the ice last week and the fact it doesn't always start up on first turn over. I'm looking to swap my nasty chrome grille for a black one? Is there any takers?

just ebay the sticky covers -- unless u have the whoooole silver one you mean !!

u can always plasi-dip it

very easy and cheap way to do it and can be removed if u want to change back

alot of people do it and it turns out great
just remember do alot of light coats - last grill i did 7 very light coats , the more u put on the easier it is to remove later down the road
do not put it on heavy - tons of videos how to do it

20 to 30$ job and some time to tape off parts u dont want it on

Nothing does really well on ice except studs or chains, but a set of winter or all-season tyres would make a big difference.
