Need help finding a new grill

I have the chrome grill on my 2008. Its starting to bubble but not peel quite yet. Truck is dark blue with chrome bumpers and grill. Kinda prefer to get a painted grill but a lot of the ones I see are crazy expensive. Any suggestions of where I can get a cool grill for a good price?

Looks like a replacement OEM FX4 grille from Tasca Parts is about $370. Seems reasonable to me.

Thinking a little more custom. Should've said that from the start. Don't really want a stock grill.

There is just so many places to look. Was just hoping for a suggestion of a place I didn't think or have time to look.

Something like this:
Smittybilt - 615830 - M1 Grille - Discount 4 Wheel | eBay

But I kind of want to get rid of the entire thing, not just an insert. Seems like some of the entire replacement ones get a little pricey so just trying to find a good deal. I'm being patient for the right deal.

Might go with this one

Where is your grille starting to bubble? If it's bubbling on the frame, you're probably going to need a new OEM grille as all the aftermarket ones require the factory frame to bolt in the aftermarket grille insert. Just something to think about. If you don't require a new OEM grille, I like Royalty Core's grilles. Probably going to pick one up as my next exterior addition.

the grill is bubbling around the super duty area. Will definitely need replacement. I'll have to send this link to my phone. I was on this forum at work and most of the pictures don't come through so didn't even see you had the grill. Did it replace the entire grill area? Including where it says super duty along the top? Want to make sure I get rid of the entire chrome piece, not get some insert in error.
