Painting grille

I have a 2011 SD Lariat;don't really like the looks of the big chrome grille;does anyone know if it is possible to remove the chrome plating and paint it to match the rest of the vehicle?

The grill is multi-pieced together. I have the outer ring on order to do the exact thing you are wanting to do

you can do it but you have to sand it all down to make sure all the chrome is off and then paint it. I had it done to my bumpers.

Did you order an xl bare ring or another chrome one? I was going to order an xl one but didn't know if its textured or not.

You can order a grill from a KR and it will come ready to paint.
