I recently pulled a new grill for my Blazer from the man mall/salvage yard.
It was the nicest one I've run across....no cracks or breaks. I applied some black vinyl to the bowtie, now it's ready to go on.
I would say start there...or like Craigslist, for people parting out S10s. That will be the most economical bet. Be sure to look at Jimmys and Bravadas, too. They have a "newer" styled valance/bumper cover. Might be something you're interested in.

Otherwise, eBay and Amazon have a few aftermarket choices for grills.
LMC or Rockauto have bumpers and valances.

If that's too much, you could always stick some chain link fence where your grill is...give it that "custom" billet-esque look.

i dont know what "piece" i would need to go to the painted bumper and the valance that goes to th wheel well and up.. i am not a fan of the textured valance that is on it. i like smooth shiney paint.

Here's the Bravada bumper cover/valance I was referring to....no texture!




Plus it has a place for fogs, so you can keep your tow hooks connected!
