I have this grille on my truck. I also ordered the paint to match surround and ditched the chrome. I believe the part number is 8200A. You have to specify paint to match and not chrome. They'll want your vin, but you have to explain you want it for a King Ranch. The parts guy was really confused lol. This does not come with any mounting hardware.
There is a black plastic component to the grille you currently have. You can see it beside the chrome bars. It supports the whole grille. The surround attaches to it as well as the top piece that attaches to your truck. You must keep this. It has to be cut out of the current grille you have. The new painted surround will attach to this. From the factory your grille has plastic rivets holding the pieces together, but you'll have to break them to remove the inner grille support. I used metal clips and machine screws vs the plastic rivets when reinstalling. I would be very careful with the mounting tabs on the paint to match surround. They are very fragile. This new grille is so rigid that it's easy to put the surround into a bind. I broke the mounting tabs on the surround and had to use industrial epoxy to reattach them.
This might not make much sense right now, but once you remove your current grill it'll start to make sense.
