Unlike a grille and an overlay that modify or change the grille itself, an Insert is designed to just be placed within the slat openings of a grille or as a protective sheet that goes behind the grille to help protect the radiator from any road or trail debris. The small addition can have a large impact on appearance and function.
Inserts for JK models come in a large assortment of styles. Slat opening inserts can have a flat black finish for a simple low-key look, or a high –gloss chrome finish for an impactful eye-catching modification. In addition, inserts can consist of perforated aluminum sheets placed behind the grille. These sheets are sometimes screen-printed with designs that can be seen through the slot openings to offer a nice stylistic look, but more importantly a functional layer of protection.
Inserts for YJ models are again more simplistic and come a fewer variety. Often simply in a black or chrome finish. They still retain the angular bend iconic for the YJ grille.
Inserts for TJ models continue the trend to offer a transitional choice between YJs and JKs, by still offering the traditional color scheme choices of black or chrome, but also coming in several different styles, which can have an open design or a multiple vertical slatted approach that retains the large look of the TJ, but also offers great protection for the radiator against road or trail debris.
