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?

    The grille cover fits great and is easy to install. The only problem was it didn't fit flush around the lights - so I put a screw under each light. Also, it would be nice if they would include more than two small alcohol swabs for installation. Overall I love it! Gives it a great new look!

    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.

    Plastic grill cover

    I wanted to give my jeep a more aggressive front look and found this grill cover in mat black at a good price. For installation, it came with prepositioned double sided tape to hold the grill in place. Unfortunately, this really does not work here in Ohio due our ever changing temperature this time of year. So, I drilled two small strategic homes and used small black screws to hold it in place. Other than that, everything went on easy and it looks good.

    Finally

    I have had my Jeep from the factory in 2000. The girl has a few rock dings on the grill and have always wanted to paint the front black. Now that I have the grille cover, I don't have to. Looks good as new. I did put clear cost over the few dings before I applied the cover. From reading other posts, I also added additional 3M tape... in the grill lines and under the headlights on the flat area. Had a couple areas under the grill cut outs that didn't want to stick but used a couple squeeze clamps until this area stuck. Love it!

    Fit is not so good.

    This product looks amazing on your rig! It protects the grille while making your jeep look more rugged. Helps with on the road debris and off the road debris! I highly recommend this product for your rig. Only thing needed for stock fenders is minor cutting so it's not bowed out from the grille. Other than that looks awesome!

    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.

    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
