Hey, guys. So today I'm here with the RedRock 4x4 Gladiator Grille in Matte Black, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers. So one of the easiest ways to switch up the front end aesthetic of your Wrangler is to add a grille. So this one by RedRock is gonna be for those JK owners that are looking to add a very aggressive aesthetic as well as a very different grille than your standard options as well as the other options on the page right now. So this is gonna be a direct replacement and it will fit exactly how your factory grille will and it will work with any factory style headlight and factory style turn signal that you already have on your JK. This is also gonna be one of your most affordable choices on the page at roughly $80. Now other more expensive options are not gonna be as aggressive as this, however, they may have some extra bells and whistles like integrated lighting into the grille or they may just have mesh panels at the front that are going to jack up that price point. But with this, you are getting that very aggressive styling and still keeping that cost down. So, obviously, choosing your grille comes down to personal preference and this isn't gonna be for everybody but this is definitely gonna be for those JK owners out there who are looking for something very aggressive, looking to add an aggressive tone to their build but looking to keep it on a budget. So install is gonna be a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, very easy to install, it's probably gonna take you about 15 minutes to do so with some basic hand tools. So speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. The tool that I used for my install was a flathead screwdriver. So the first step to taking off our grille is just to pop our hood. So after we have our hood popped, we can go ahead and take our flathead screwdriver and start to remove the six pop clips that are holding in the top of our grille. You can also use a trim removal tool but I feel a flathead screwdriver is a little bit easier to remove these. Just be mindful when you're using a flathead screwdriver to protect your paint, don't want to scratch that up. So after we have our last one out, we can move on to disconnecting our turn signals. So before we pop off our grille, we want to disconnect our turn signals, just depress that clip and pull back then we can do the same thing on the other side. So after we have our turn signals disconnected, we can just pop off our grille. Just give it a little bit of a tug, then we can fully disconnect our grille.So what we need to do next is swap our factory turn signals over to our new grille. So we're gonna use that same flathead screwdriver that we used to remove the pop clips up at the top and just depress these clips and wiggle out our turn signal. So once those are past our grille, we can just pop that out, put that to the side. We can do the same thing on the other one. So before we go ahead and install our new grille on our Wrangler, I did want to sit next to our factory one and show you guys a little bit of a comparison. So overall, these are gonna be completely different. First off, this is made of an ABS plastic material, it's gonna be a little bit more rigid than your more flimsy factory grille. This is also gonna come in a matte black finish so you can keep it matte black to create a little bit of a contrast with your Wrangler or this is also completely paintable so you can paint it to the color code on your Wrangler already. Now obviously this is gonna be a lot different, you are replacing those iconic seven slots with something a lot more aggressive, you do get some hard angles in here and the eyebrows over top of your headlights, so you are getting a very aggressive look out of this in comparison to your simple and clean factory grille. Now not to mention, this is going to come with everything that you need to install it. It does come with some replacement retainer clips so you don't have to move those over from your factory grille. And it does come with a hood seal here, so your hood is going to be sealed to your grille. So it does have all the features that your factory grille will, it just has a more aggressive appearance. So let's go ahead and get this set up so we can install it on our Wrangler. Like I mentioned, we have a couple of things to do here. So first we're gonna start with our turn signals, these are gonna go in exactly how they were taken out of our factory grille. So all we have to do is push that up into place, line up our clips, and we can just give it a little pressure, can pop it forward and the tabs on our turn signal will clip into place. We can do the same thing on the other side. So after our turn signals are in place, we can take our new retainer clips and attach those onto our clips here. You're gonna have four down on the bottom and then you're gonna have two, one on each turn signal.So our last step before we can install our grille is just to install our rubber seal up at the top for our hood. Now it's gonna have 3M tape on the back so we can just peel some of that backing off and start to stick it on top of our grille. You want to make sure that it is lined up, you're gonna stick it directly on top. After you have it in position, just give it a little quick press and when the hood is closed it'll help to cure that seal and then we can go ahead and install it on our Jeep. So what we can do now is just pop on our grille and push the retainer clips into place lining everything up. Then RedRock does provide you with new pop clips for the top. I'm just gonna reuse our stock ones since those are still good but if you ever have a broken clip, they do provide you with those. We can just pop our pop clips back into place. So we can plug it in both of our turn signals. Do the same thing on the other side. So our last step is just gonna be to close up our hood. That's gonna wrap it up for my review and install.

Didn't get everything
Love the look, but didn't get the clips or the weather strip for the new grill so I am not able to put it on until I get at least the weather strip. I sent an email and still haven't heard back from anyone.Helpful (0)

Wonderful and inexpensive upgrade!
This was a very simple and inexpensive upgrade to my Jeep that gives it that aggressive look that I wanted. The grill appears to be a bit more rigid than the stock bumper which should hold up nicely. I did have to slightly shave one of the small holes where the turn signal light slides into because it was maybe not cut all the way from the factory. Still took less than 15minutes overall and like I said that was minor. 10/10 would purchase again!Helpful (0)

Fairly easy to install since I had to carve a bit for the front signal lights to fit, but once that was done, install was a breeze.Helpful (0)

Easy install. Everything fit very well despite what some of the reviews were saying. There must be some slight variation in the fitment for each part, but mine went on really well and I am happy with the look.Helpful (0)

Will I have access to my hood lock also where is grill nadd
This will not work with hood locks.
What grille insert (that protects radiator/mesh) works with this grille?
We do not offer a grille insert that is compatible with this grille.
Does the radiator get the same amount of air
The restriction to the radiator with the RedRock 4x4 Gladiator Grille installed in very minuscule and will not severely restrict any power from the Wrangler.
Would I be able to take off my light guards that are screwed into my old grill and put them on this new grill
The grille would interfere with your light guards and not fit properly
looking to get this for my jeep but want to know if I get the American flag grill back pice will it fit
Grille inserts are not compatible with this grille.
You would easily be able to go back to a stock grille since this doesn't require any modification to your jeep to install.
