Replacement Grill for '08

I am looking for a replacement grill for my 08 F-250. I took a rock hit and all the chrome coating is peeling off one area about 4 in2. Are there any after market replacements or do you have to buy OEM? I'm not looking for a grill insert, I need the whole grill replaced or have it primed and painted.
Thanks,
Duk

You should check on Ebay for a factory grille.

I could be interested. Let me know a price. I can wait a few weeks if the price is right. I'm looking at the RBP grill also. A little pricey, but it does look good!

I have a factory chrome grill as well laying around. I also have a dark XL grill too.

I bought the FX4 grill already painted to match from Tasca Ford Parts for $550 if you want to go that route.

I'm assuming you're out of warranty? If not was wondering if ford didn't want to cover it. Just curious.

Good question. I had not considered if Ford would cover the grill. I just assumed since it appears to be a rock hit, they would not cover the replacement.

it will likely fall under normal wear and tear. ford doesn't repaint your rock chipped front end either

I'll let everyone know tomorrow if I'll be selling the grille or not. Dealer may swap the chrome for a color matched one as part of the deal but they're not sure yet.
