Finding FX4 grill in my color

I have a dark shadow gray truck with the black XL grill, and want to switch to the FX4 grill, only problem is finding one.

I've looked all over Tasca and other places and it seems like they sell every color except mine, where there no dark shadow gray FX4's? What would be my options then, buying an FX4 grill in another color and paying to get it repainted? That sounds overly expensive if that's my only option I'll just have to settle for an XLT painted grill.
Here's my truck to give you an idea:

Why not just buy an FX4 grill and have it painted?

I had considered that, but the cost of buying an FX4 grill, then taking it somewhere and having it painted would put me near or at $1k, money I could spend elsewhere.

I'd rather be able to be like all the other colors and buy one already painted for the color of my truck, I'll just get a painted XLT grill for a much smaller cost and put that money into something else.

Thanks anyway.

Tasca has them for $367. Painting shouldn't be any more than $100.

Really think it would be that cheap to get it painted? I was thinking like $300

I don't see why it would be that expensive. You're only painting a square foot or two of area. And there isn't any damage to repair. All they will have to do is sand it down and spray it.
