Grill opinions...

So I'm getting tired of my chrome grill. I really like the STX grill and the 08ish Sport grill (same grill) but they can't be found really anywhere.
I can get one of the honeycomb grills on ebay for $40 with my $10 ebay coupon
LINK
Be a lot easier to clean, is the edge of this body-color black? (as opposed to just being black plastic) and if so, would that look funny on my sonic blue ranger?
should i stay with the chrome or go with the black honeycomb?
any place I can get the STX/sport grill? you know the one.... and dealer doesn't count

here's my truck for reference:

yeah, that's the one I was talking about that I wanted.... but availability is an issue. nobody seems to know where to get them besides the dealer or a JY. And you're living in a dream if you think I can find an STX in the junkyards around here!

Thanks!

I paid around $200 for mine. I was tired of looking for one and just bought one from the dealership.

Here's a better picture of the grille:
