Went from chrome to black badges by replacing the entire hood bezel on my 2020 1500 Laramie Sport. I purchased an OEM bezel from my local dodge dealer all in for $145 (March '22). Likely not the least expensive route, maybe not the easiest, but it's the one I felt was best for me and my OCD. The pics are in order of how I did it (full disclosure...I'm a Sunday mechanic using Harbor Freight trim tools, without autobody experience, so those on here who actually know what they are doing may want to cover your eyes...). Those little blue plastic clips on the bottom of the bezel look innocent, but they are strong as !#!?!. Most of those clips broke (see carnage in pic), but the original bezel survived. With new clips, the original bezel could be reused. Hope this helps someone.
