I dont think a flat-black grill would match the concrete block behind your driver seat.

You won the poll so I guess you gotta uphold that status huh!!!

Yes your grille will look good painted, but I would use a bed liner rattle can it would look a lot better. something with some texture.

Id like to see it on a clean solid black jeep as well. I had entertained it as I have blacked out my emblems, added flat blag stickering, flat black wheels, etc etc.

As long as we're asking for opinions I'd lose the relocated Jeep logo. But that's just me. Grill looks good.
