People looking for OEM grills

I've been looking at the For Sale-WANTED sections looking for a replacement grill. Naturally there are slim to none available. I've come across a place that has "about 75" brand new, OEM JK grills. They got them at auction so that explains the quantity. The price on the grill is $75 and they charged $20 freight. All in all this seems like a pretty good deal to me.

Seeing as a bunch of you seem to be looking for grills I figured I'd share the info: Thorton's Auto Parts at 1-800-852-8535 in case anybody is in need. Nice folks.

I ordered this morning so I can't say if they're actually as good as they seem, but after knocking on some wood I feel pretty comfortable in sharing. I'll let you folks know either way.

The grill got here today. It's ok. Not perfect. There are some scuffs on the areas just below the headlight holes. I'm not sure right now how much I care or not. There's no doubt that it looks better than the existing grill.

Beats me. I'm not in control of their inventory. Give 'em a call.

I have a red one that I'm selling for 50 plus shipping. It does have some damage on it but nothing too bad.

It's not bad maybe a little heat and push the damage out from the back side and then a little sanding
