Anyone know where I can find a black grilles for the 2008 XLT? I hate chrome but love the escape. I realize you can paint them but I dont know whether or not it will turn out like shit or not?

Thanks

I'll send you a (used) painted white grille for you to sand down and paint black on your own if you cover the shipping expense. I need to get rid of it. I don't have the materials, tools, or time for the project.

I'm in the process of checking shipping prices right now (I am also in the process of moving, ha) for someone who PMed me a while ago. Only assuming by looking at your signature picture, I don't have the grille for your Escape...

Hey All,

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I am curious about getting a black grille for my '09. Has anyone found a good aftermarket source? My Escape is black, so I would like an exact colour match. Does anyone produce grilles using exact Ford paint codes, or would I need to get one in a primered state and have it painted locally?

Thanks in advance.

Got mine from tascaparts.com they are based in RI. I got mine painted black (code UA). The total cost for the grille and paint job was around 175. 100 for grille, 75 for paint job.

Here is how mine looks:
