Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the Drake Off Road Grill Inserts in black, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. These are for those of you who wanna change up the look of the front of your Jeep without getting rid of that iconic seven-slot grille. While these do look good and will definitely change up the look, they also add a layer of protection against stone throws. Stones can come up through the openings in the grille and damage your radiator or your air conditioning components, and these will help just knock down some of those stones that would otherwise cause damage. These are a really high-quality, well-built product that also fit really well, and for something that's billet aluminum, these are priced really fairly. In fact, they are significantly less expensive than a lot of the other grille inserts on the market, and in my opinion, they are better made than some of the other ones. As with most things from Drake Off Road, these grille inserts are made of billet aluminum and covered in a black powder coat finish. In fact, even the clips that go on the back side of the grille that screw into the grille inserts, holding everything together, are also billet aluminum. So you don't have any plastic, you don't have to worry about anything getting brittle in the sun or in the cold and breaking. Everything is gonna hold up really well for you. These are designed to fit right in your factory grille, install easily, you don't have to drill anything, and as I said before, they look good and add a great level of protection. So to get these installed on your Jeep is a pretty simple process. The first step is to remove your factory grille, and in order to do that, you'll wanna remove the turn signal plugs, then remove the eight clips across the top of the grille. And finally, just give it a good pull and it'll pop right off. From there, you can install the grille inserts from the front. On the back side of the grille, you'll lay the clips across the back and use the included screws to hold the grille inserts into place. Some grille inserts just clip into the grille from the front, and the installation is a little bit easier. However, in my opinion, it's not as secure of an installation. Other grille inserts will be held in with 3M tape, which is something that I actually do like because it prevents the opportunity for the grille insert to chafe the factory grille. But because the clips that are included in this setup are billet aluminum, everything is really solid. I really do like the way that these install on the Jeep. The whole installation process shouldn't take you more than an hour, and that's including putting the grille back on the Jeep in the reverse order of the steps that you took it off. Anytime you're looking at a product that is billet aluminum, the price usually climbs, especially over a plastic alternative. But if you look at these billet aluminum grille inserts versus some other billet aluminum grille inserts, these are actually really fairly priced. Some of the other ones can be $130, $200, and even more. So for the price you have to pay for these, I think they are a bargain. They're incredibly well-made. I love the installation system, and they look really good. So if you wanna customize the look of the front end of your Jeep, but you're not ready to get rid of that iconic seven-slot grille, these do a really nice job of accenting the factory grille while still giving you that custom look. They're an item that fit really well, are priced really, really reasonably, and the installation could not be simpler. So that's my review of the Drake Off Road Grille Inserts, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Will these work on a 2017 recon?

  • Thank you for your question! Your 2017 Rubicon Recon does have a special edition front grille, so the Drake Off Road Grille Inserts won't work.

  • We have not tested the Drake Off Road Grille Inserts with a bolt hood lock, but outside of cutting some minor adjustment to the mounting may be needed to make this function correctly.

I Line-X my 2016 Sport's factory grille and want to know are the screws long enough for any wiggle room or is it a just right fit with no wiggle room at all?

  • Hello, you should have enough room for these Drake Off Road Grille Inserts if you've lined your grille. If you want a visual of how this is installed I attached the install guide here: http://1.cdn.lib.extremeterrain.com/guides/J18230_Guide.pdf

    Grille me another cheesburger

    great product and easy install, they really make the grille look finished, only took less than an hour... I installed mine without taking grille off vehicle by holding back supports with one screw caught, turning into position then installing second screw...I saved the middle insert for last, caught one screw on top and bottom support and with the help of 2 small pieces of wire turned the support up to finish. Don't know how much time I saved but was pretty easy

    High quality

    The install is a bit tedious with the tiny Allen screws but the materials are extremely high quality. If you like the look, I highly recommend these. I suppose you could paint them if you were inclined as well. It might be obvious to many, but these covers sit on the outside of the grill whereas many covers sit on the inside of the grill. (Neither better nor worse in my opinion).

    Drake off road grill inserts

    Very nice, I'm impressed. And now I have protection for my radiator. I did lose 1 screw but I got another one at the local hardware store and used a sharpy to color it. Installed in about an hour (does not include the list screw time) the screws and the grill inserts are aluminum and you can use a magnet. In hind sight I think I could have used a tray to hold the screws. But I like them and they will stay. :)

    great way to protect vehicle

    This is an easy DIY project. It took me about an hour to install the inserts. Removing the grille assembly from Jeep takes only a few minutes and Is necessary to install the inserts. If needed, easy to follow instructions are included to remove the assembly. If it's cold outside you can take everything inside and work on it there. I would suggest laying all of the inserts in first so you can align everything up including your brackets. A hex key or Allen wrench is needed to bolt the brackets on. Once I was done and I got the grille assembly back on the Jeep I'm very happy with the look.

    Black Billet Grill Inserts

    These grill inserts look great and were not difficult to install. I removed my grill to install them as per the directions, but with patience I think that they could be installed with the grill still attached to the Jeep. The inserts are sturdy and well manufactured, and the mounting brackets are well designed and should hold up to off-roading as well as normal day-to-day use. The only reason that I did not give the product a 5 star rating is because I was missing one mounting bolt when I opened the package. I contacted Drake directly for a replacement and they responded quickly and assured me that they would mail me the missing hardware.

    Red makes it Pop

    Install and included directions were pretty straight forward. I decided to paint them red before installation and really love the results. The red inserts against the black body paint and red in the seat covers really pop.

    Light and strong with good looks!

    Just got these about a week ago and so far they're great! Easy to install with the brackets instead of having to drill, and they're strong! Had the unfortunate incident of hitting a bird while driving :/ , but the inserts held up and kept everything out, thank God.. But anyways! Yes, I would recommend them! Inexpensive and strong, I'll be sure to order some more if anything happens to these ones!

    Great look, easy installation

    Inserts arrived quickly and were well packed. Installation was easier than expected abit the bolt on left side is a bit tricky to get out and reinstall. Due to the 21.5 light and brackets could only install five of the seven inserts for now.

    Very pleased. Offers a nice clean 'filler' for the Jeep 7. Hides the radiator and the pipe for a nicer look. Panels very tough to line up 'perfectly', but I am fussy...and satisfied! Easy install. Maybe about a 3 hour job.

    These grille inserts look great on my Jeep. Some advice on the installation, be aware of the pattern they form otherwise you'll find yourself unscrewing and turning the inserts around to align the clips.

    Sizing is a bit off

    These fit over the plastic inserts that come standard on the 16 Sahara Wranglers (I hadn't realized that at the time). They were a bit difficult to install and don't all lineup. Some also seem either too long or too short but I'm sure it's only me that notices...

    Made well

    Thanks to John's review I installed these without removing the front grille. I attached the brackets to the insert with one screw, secured the inserts into place, turned the brackets and attached the final screws. The last insert is a little tricky; I used a thin wire hanger to reach through the insert and turn the brackets into place before securing it with the final screw. My only complaint is that because the inserts are not all cut the exact same, it's near impossible to align all of the brackets exactly across the grille. This will likely not be a big deal to many but my OCD made it annoying. To align the brackets as close as possible, I'd recommend laying out all the inserts first before installation.

    Compatibility Issue

    After speaking to a customer service at Extreme Terrain concerning compatibility, I purchased these for a new Recon Wrangler. Contrary to what I was told, the fit was not good. They could be forced on, but not without potentially scratching the trim pieces of the factory grille. I believe the inserts would perform as desired, in a Wrangler with a standard factory grille, but the black hardware that came with these would require touching up, practically right out of the box. Not a good thing, for install on a new vehicle.
