Anybody want to swap grills?

I have a 2008 XL with a black grill and my wife would love to swap for a chrome one. The truck doesn't even have 4,000 miles on it yet and the grill is in perfect shape. I saw some threads started by guys with chrome grills and wanting to swap for a black one but they are old. So is this something somebody would want to do?

I already swapped grills but......

I got two chrome bumpers in perfect shape that I would be willing to trade for painted or preferably black ones.

I had the grill off when I installed the bug guard, your right it's pretty easy.
