    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from, 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

        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.

            I have a 15 altitude addition that came with small rim inserts in the grill. These will work with the grill inserts I ordered, but you must use patience while lining everything up. Overall look is great.

            They went on fairly easy. I’m hoping they don’t mar the paint as they do come close to the surface of the grill. Time will tell. They do look really good.

            Made em' work....

            I looked for awhile at multiple products trying to find something that would work with my Freedom Edition and the inserts it already had. I finally concluded that these would be my best option after reading reviews. Suffice it to say, I'm content with how it ended up, but the process was a little more involved than I thought it would be. The fit was NOT even close to perfect, and the fact that I had missing hardware out of the box just made it more irritating. BEWARE, count your hardware and make sure it's all there before you install! Thankfully, Extreme Terrain responded quickly sending an additional bag of hardware, and that was much appreciated! Overall I am still happy with the purchase though and it looks good on my Jeep.

            The Grille

            The insets look great plus strong enough to actually provide protection to the radiator. Used a different method to install than what was stated and worked out great. I have a light bar and light on the bumper so I couldn’t take the front grille section completely off the Jeep without removing the bar and was able to loosen and lean the grille forward enough to get my hands behind the grille and worked both side of the grille installing each piece and it worked great.

            Too many parts

            First - poor design by Jeep to keep 2.5 square feet of open space on a grill. Dumb. Spending many hours on the roads, I hate parts made like this for shatter mechanics. including screws there are 49 parts that could loosen and be road debris. Plus they wedge against the paint and kiss that goodbye once installed. I would go for the one piece behind next time.

            The Best

            The Drake grille inserts add a finished look and protect your grill from bugs and rocks. They are billet aluminum so there is no "plastic" look. Easy to install, but it helps to have 3 hands. Also, be sure to buy a tool to remove the grommets that hold the front grille on. Makes the job much easier.

            Easy upgrade

            After reading the other reviews, I took some time to lay out the inserts against a white background in order to line up the mount points. I managed to get all the mounting brackets aligned except the outer two which were slightly lower - barely distinguishable. Installation was super easy, and inserts look great on the Jeep.

            These inserts look great and were very easy to install. The grills and attachment hardware are nicely finished aluminum all nicely packaged. I popped off the grill (5 min), installed the seven inserts with the provided screws and brackets, made sure they were all aligned, final tightened the screws, and reinstalled the grill. The whole job was done is far less than an hour with absolutely no hassles.

            Great for the price!

            I live in southern Arizona and we really have an issue with rocks on the highways getting kicked up. Having the wide open 7-slot grill made me nervous just waiting for a rock to smash the radiator or transmission cooler. I starting looking for grill inserts to help protect the front end. I really didn't like the idea of 3M taped on inserts. I also wasn't a huge fan of the solid mesh sheets that just kind of sit behind the grill and might move around. I found these and the price seemed great for what you get. I received them in the mail about 4 days after ordering. I got my grill out and starting putting these in. You need a 2.5mm hex head wrench for the bolts. As others have stated, it takes time to get them to all line up and be straight. Once you tighten them down, they will possibly scratch into the paint on the grill on the ends because they sit so tight within the slots. They do look great in the end. My set was also short one screw.

            Grill inserts are well designed, secure, and easy to install. Quality construction. Took a little more time, grill could not be removed due to my winch clearance. Still easy to install by tilting grill forward. Grill looks great. Would recommend this product.
