Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the Barricade Matte Black Grille Cover fitting on 1997 to 2008 TJ's. This is for those of you who want to change up the look of the front of your Jeep by modifying your Grille but want to keep that iconic center slot grille style. Now some people say that this grille cover will protect your factory grille from stone throws and other damage while other people say that having a plastic grille cover in close proximity to your painted metal grille may cause some chafing and actually damage your factory paint. Now while I'm a little bit more in that second school of thought, there's one thing that's for sure: this will definitely cover up any existing damage that you have on your grille. Now there are a couple of different ways to cover up any damage that you might have on your grille, from a roll-on or spray-on bed liner to something more temporary like a plastic removable spray-on cover. However, this is going to be a lot easier to install and a lot easier to uninstall if you ever decide to do that. This grille cover is made of ABS plastic so it's going to be really strong. And once you have it installed if you get a stone throw into the grille or if you're off road and you have a branch rub across the grille, this is going to hold up really well and not crack or become damaged. The matte black finish will stay black thanks to the UV protectant that's built into the plastic, so this isn't going to fade over time like some cheaper grills may end up doing. This is designed to install 100% with 3M tape. So, again, the installation is really really easy. To get this installed on your Jeep, all you need to do is clean the factory grille thoroughly. Anytime you're using 3M adhesive to install parts, as long as the surface that you're applying the 3M to is really clean, the part's going to stay put exactly where you want it to. So you can use a couple of different things to clean the factory grille, but anything alcohol-based will work really well. Once you have the grille clean, you can peel off the red backing on the 3M tape that comes pre-applied to your grille cover and put it in place. From there, it's just a matter of pushing it on to make sure that it stays nice and tight, and you're done. Make sure you're doing this in an area that is pretty warm. It's going to help the adhesive stick. If you try to install this on a cold winter's day, it's going to take a while for the adhesive to really set up. The whole installation process shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes and you won't need any tools at all, just some cleaners. Like I said before, there are a lot of ways to color change your grille. Some are more permanent, others are still temporary, but most aren't going be as easy to install and to uninstall as this grille cover is. And when you compare this to other grille covers that are a similar style on the market, I think this one is really competitively priced and there's nothing wrong with it. It fits great, it comes with all the 3M tape that you need to install it, and it's a pretty good looking piece. So if you're looking to black out the grille on your Jeep either to cover up damage or to just give your Jeep a little bit more of a stealthy look, but you're not looking to do a permanent change like a bed-liner, and you want something that's really easy to install and uninstall when the time comes this is a really nice option that comes in at a lower price point than a lot of other ones on the market. So that's my review of the Barricade Matte Black Grille Cover fitting on 1997 to 2006 TJ's that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Hello, I have a question was looking into purchasing this item for my Jeep but not sure it would fit properly. The Drivers side on the stock grill is dented inward so was hoping to cover the damage with this but thinking it wouldn't fit properly on the grill since it's dented inward. Does this piece fit directly on top of the stock grill? Thanks. -Jake

I have RedRock 4X4 Black Billet Grille Inserts installed. Will this cover work with the inserts installed? Or will I have to remove them?

    Did not fit

    Grill popped off at bottom but was flush at the top. Did not flush like it did in the video for my 2004 TJ. Ended up using rustoleum rugged black peel paint and looks great

    Looks good.

    The 3m tape that came with it wasn't enough to keep it on. I added a few extra pieces of 3m double sided tape and it's holding up so far so good after 3 months. Looks good.

    Nice grill cover

    This grill cover fits well and looks great. I only have two minor complaints. First there did not seem to be enough 3M tape to hold it solidly in place. I wound up adding about as much additional tape as was already there, and now it is very solid. Second, the original color of the Jeep shows through around the headlights. I added some black electrical tape under the cover, and that solved the problem. Now it looks great, and is very solid.

    Good product

    Does what it's supposed to. Covered my chipped up grill. Fit was decent, but not exact. Double stick tape was a waste. I drilled one hole on each side of the grille openings where they can't be seen. Holds it in place great.

    I put the grill cover on after cleaning the grill and using an alcohol swab, but the double sided tape did not work. I decided to zip tie it and it works and looks good.

    Looks good - Adhesive tape is useless

    This grill looks good but the adhesive tape is completely useless. I had to get gorilla glue and still didn’t work. Now I’m going to screw in from the top. Ideally it needs to be redesigned to click out the grill instead of just cover.

    Doesn't last

    After 5 months it is already coming off and will not sit flush on one side. I had already tried all the suggestions from customer service. Now it's an expensive wall decoration... disappointing.

    Barricade Grill Cover 04 TJ

    Fit is great and installation was a breeze. The only negative I've had is that there really isn't much 3M tape to hold the cover on. I cleaned the grill surface with soap and water, then took an alcohol pad over it, but it continues to come loose. May have to buy more 3M tape and redo it as it keeps coming loose.

    Poor Quality

    Extremely poor quality.....doesn't fit correctly and the tape is worthless. I would have screwed it in but it still wouldn't fit correctly.....just for the record.....the customer service was top notch.

    Doesn't fit right

    Love the look but the plastic cover doesn't fit right on my TJ. It bulges like it'd a tad too wide to git the grille. I've got it holding on with zip ties hoping the Florida sun will soften it and mold it into place

    Looks awesome

    I just installed this product. It looks great, but didn't fit tight to the grill even after putting additional 3M tape on the back. It bonds well beneath the hood and under the headlights, but the sections around the headlights and beneath the radiator would not sick. Overall good sturdy product, that could have been perfect if manufactured better.

    This is a good item.

    This is just about the only black TJ grille cover you will find that isn't some variation of the angry eye nonsense. As others have stated the two sided tape included isn't really adequate. I picked up some all weather heavy duty velcro which is working fine and I can remove the grill as needed if I want to hose everything down. I think for plastic maybe this is overpriced a little, but it does feel well made.

    EZ install

    Drilled two small holes for screws in the upper slots to keep secure since I used it to hide a dented grill so tape would not work well. Much cheaper then body work and looks good. May post before and after video online showing how effective it is in covering up damage to the grill.

    Looks great, needs screws

    The grill is on and looks amazing... but adhesive tape did absolutely nothing. Had to take it to a shop and get about 5 screws drilled in. But the grill looks great. The angry bird grill for tj is made of same material but comes with holes for screws. The top part extends longer so it can be screwed into factory setup. The extension would be great for this product as well. Also the other grill is 80 dollars cheaper. Something to think about.
