With absolutely nothing better to do, Im looking at the rusted front bumper and wrinkled/chipped grille chrome on BBT and thinking they finally need to be replaced. Have any of you had any luck with replacement parts other than OEM? Im staying with the stock 2003 look, too.

I found a few online like these but not sure on quality of finsih or if they'd last even a few years.

I know -- boneyard. :rolleyes: Found one bumper for $195, one grille for $185 in decent body-shop condition.

OEM has the best overall quality and fitment.

Look at keystone for aftermarket. I used them on my sons lb7 to save some money. Overall it fit ok but could of been better. The grille is a smidge off but all depends on the individual. I’m super picky.

I just picked up a paintable replacement cover from eBay. Have yet to install it but as far as I can tell it looks like it’ll fit great. Quality and dimensions look squared away and it was packaged very nicely.
