lower grill?

so me and my wife noticed the OE lowwer grill and some of the bumper in that section are broke..sure its an easy fix, and in fact one that could be done without painting as its minor

however

with the few ive come across in the wrecker i did an experiment and it lead me to wonder if anyone ever made or makes a replacement lower grill or a grill "set"

cause the OE non rs bumper with the bars cut out looks pretty good, did a quick n dirty cut on one at a wrecker

Ya, it's been done. Long, long time ago some members went that route.

I've seen a handful of grille replacements listed:

I've also seen some chrome / aluminum sets from APS and T-Rex, but I don't really like the way they look.

(link just for the photos, I don't know if this store is any good)
