Hi, guys. So, today, we're checking out the RedRock 4x4 Diamond Eye Grille with the LED Light Bar fitting all 2018 and the newer JL Wranglers. So if you're looking for one of the easiest ways to switch up the look of the front end of your Wrangler, a grille is always a great place to start. And this option by RedRock is not only going to give you that front end styling, but it's going to give you a little bit of extra function in the meantime.Now, starting off with that styling, as you can tell, this is going to add a very aggressive look to the front end. However, it is going to be on the more simple side in comparison to some other options available on the page, which I particularly like. Now, up at the top, we're going to have that aggressive brow, and down in the middle, we're gonna have a very angular construction. That's going to add a very dynamic look to the front end of the Jeep, perfect for somebody who's looking for that aggressive look, but doesn't necessarily want to take it over the top when it comes to a grille.Now, like I mentioned, this is going to be functional as well and that is thanks to that single row LED light bar up at the top. Now, this is going to come pre-installed on the grille, which I like personally. It takes out some of the fuss of the install. But it's going to add a very sleek look while also increasing your lighting performance at night if you're looking to complement your headlights and your fog lights, or you're just looking for a little bit of extra light when it comes to dark back roads and dark trails.Now, not only is it going to help out your lighting performance, but that single row and black housing is going to add a very sleek look. And I think it complements the rest of the grille very well. And you're also getting a little bit of functionality and protection with the grille inserts included on this grille. That's going to protect anything behind the grille with AC condenser and the radiator from any kick up on the street or the trail.So, overall, this is going to be great for somebody who is looking for that lighting performance, a spot to add some lighting on the front end of their Jeep, a more aggressive look, and a little bit of function and protection in the meantime. Now, with that being said, this is going to come in at roughly $250, which is going to be a little bit more expensive than the average aftermarket grille. But you do have to keep in mind what this comes with in comparison to some other choices. Now, not a lot of other choices on the page are going to come up with that light bar installed or a spot to mount up a light bar.A lot of other options are just going to just be a replacement grille. They may have an angry or aggressive aesthetic like this one does, but this is going to take it a step further when it comes to function with that LED light bar. Now, like I also said, this is going to keep it a little bit more simplistic, even though we are getting a very aggressive design with this. This is going to be a little bit more simple in the middle. I particularly like that. It just is a little less busy than some other options. So if you are a fan of that, you don't want to take it over the top. Again, this is going to be a great choice.Now, with that being said, install is going to come in at a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. This is going to involve a little bit of wiring. However, it's nothing you can't get done with some very basic hand tools in your driveway in about 45 minutes. So speaking of that install, let's jump into that now. Tools that I used for my install were a trim removal tool, a wire tool, a ratchet, and a 10-millimeter deep socket. So the first step to taking off our grille is to pop our hood and take off the six clips that are holding in the upper part of our grille.So for this, I'm going to use a trim removal tool or a clip removal tool. You could also use a flathead screwdriver. There's going to be little cutouts on each of the clips where you can wedge in your tool, pull up on the center, and then completely pop the clip out.After those are removed, what we're gonna do is lift up on either side. There's going to be a little post that's holding the grille into the radiator's port up top. And then we can just give it a good pull back. It's going to be held in by retainer clips down at the bottom, all you have to do is just give it a good pull.So before we hop into the inside, I want to stop down and show you guys a little bit more about this new RedRock option and some of the similarities between this new choice and our factory grille. As you can see, our factory grille is going to be a lot more simplistic than our new option next to it on the table here. We're going to have that iconic seven slots. You're going to have a mesh insert here. And then overall, it's just going to have a very simplistic and stock feel to it.Now, moving over to this new option, that is not going to be the case. You're getting a very aggressive and dynamic look out of here, especially with the grille or the cutouts in the middle, and you're also getting a very aggressive brow up at the top. Now, the one similarity that I do like to call out and that I think is very beneficial for this grille to have is the inserts in the middle.Now, it is going to be a little bit different in comparison to our factory one, but it's still going to serve that same purpose or that same function with adding a little bit of protection to anything that's sitting behind your grille, like your radiator and your AC condenser. That's just going to give a little bit of extra protection for any hiccup while you're on the road or even while you're on the trail. Now, the big step up that we're getting from this grille that our factory grille is unable to offer us is that LED light bar up the top. Now, that's going to add a lot of visibility out of the front end of the Jeep.It's put at a perfect place for that visibility. So if you want to use that in addition to your other lights for better lighting performance at night, on dark back roads, and dark trails, that is at the perfect spot for that. Now, it is going to look very sleek as well and comes pre-installed in the grille. You're going to have multiple LEDs in a single row, and you're also going to have a black housing around that. So it is going to look very sleek while also offering that light performance.Now, this is made of an ABS material, so it is going to be able to hold up for a long time, and it also is going to be paintable. So if you want to color-match it just like our factory grille here to your factory paint code, you can do that. You can color-match it to really any color scheme that you have going on on your JL, or you can honestly leave it black just like this and add a little bit of contrast to your Wrangler, especially if you have a brighter color, like the pumpkin color or any other bright color code that that Jeep has.So overall, this is going to be a big step up from our factory grille. And it's going to come with really everything that you need in order to install it like the top clips, the retainer clips, and even the weatherstripping for the seal at the hood. Now, I would like to mention that this is not going to come with a wiring harness. It does come with two leads, so you can wire this in however you'd like.I'm going to show you my way with an additional wiring harness that does not come in the kit, but we do have them available on the site. I'll talk about that more in just a second. What do you say we go ahead and put this together so we can get ready to install it on our Jeep? So what we're gonna do now is install our retainer clips. So these are just going to go on the post here, and we're just going to give it a good press.Then we're gonna install our seal or our weatherstripping. I'm just gonna pull back on this 3M tape backing. And we can just center this on the grille, start in the middle, and then give it a good press. Now, if it's giving you trouble sticking right away, once you have this installed and the hood is down, I'm going to press down on this seal to help out the adhesion process, and it's going to allow it to sit a little bit better. So do your best to press it on as best as you can on the table. But that hood and the weight of that is going down on itself as well.So once that's pressed in place, now we're ready to install this on our Jeep. So what we're gonna do is line up our grille where the retainer clips are going to set in in this radiator support here. I would like to mention that this wiring harness is important to have available after we install the grille. So I'm just going to route this next to our headlight and inside our engine bay for the time being, so that is reachable and accessible once we have this installed. Then we're gonna line this up, give it a good tap, set those pins in place. All right.And it may give you a little bit of trouble at first just because the ABS doesn't want to stretch at first, but we may have to give it a little push, and then we can grab our new clips that are provided in the kit. You can also use your factory ones if they're in good condition, but I always like to use the ones that are provided with the kit. And, we can go ahead and install those.So now that the grille is installed, what we're gonna do is wire up our light bar. Now, this is going to come with just two standard negative and positive leads. And in the kit, you are provided with little vampire clips, so you can clip them into really whatever you'd like. So if you do want to have the light bar actually with your fog lights, or your running lights, or really wherever you want them wired into, you can directly wire them into there.Now, what I personally like is to have it on a standalone switch that makes it available to switch on and off at your discretion really whenever you'd like. And a wiring harness like this is also going to come with a relay and an inline fuse, which does make the wiring a little bit safer. So I personally would recommend to go with a wiring harness option. I'm using the one by Raxiom. It is available on this site, and they are very inexpensive.So, adding this on to the grille is definitely something I recommend. And I'm going to show you how to wire it up. It is very easy to do this as well. Sometimes when you have to directly wire them in, it can be a little bit more challenging to figure out where and how to do that. So, again, I do definitely recommend a standalone switch and a wiring harness in order to do this. So what we're gonna do at this point is lay out our wiring harness where we need it.So we're going to have two leads for the battery, and all of the wires are going to come off of the relay. There's also a little tab where you can mount this really wherever you'd like inside the engine bay. Usually, you can mount it on one of the bolts over on the side here. It just keeps everything stationary. But I'm going to actually connect this to the battery last.And I'm going to take the other wire, this is going to be for our switch. There is a little connector here. I'm actually going to take off our switch so we can run this through a little bit easier. I'm going to put this on the other side of the driver side of the engine bay and just leave the switch right here for the time being. And at the end, we can clean everything up and zip tie it, make sure everything is out of the way of anything moving or hot inside the engine bay and just to clean up the work a little bit.Now, we will run that through the firewall in just a second, but first I want to get our leads attached. So with this specific wiring harness, we're just going to have one connector here. We're gonna have a negative and we're going to have a positive.Now, I'm just going to take those leads and add a spade connector so we can directly connect it in to our wiring harness here. So you can just start with the negative, twist that wire, add the connector. Take your crimping tool, cut that down. Make sure that's got a great connection. Do the same thing with the positive. And now we have our leads ready to attach to our wiring harness. So we can grab our wiring harness, plug positive to positive and negative to negative, right. Now, we can kind of clean up that wiring. Again, I would recommend to zip tie this and kind of condense it.There is going to be a little bit of space on the side of our battery here in order to do that. Leave this here. So we can run our switch through the firewall and attach our switch, and then we can attach our leads to the battery. So on the automatic Wrangler right next to the brake master cylinder, there is going to be a little pass-through point. I'm going to use that to route our wire through. It's going to be on the outside here. Maybe a little bit difficult to see, but it's right on the side of there. And this is going to drop out at the footwell right next to that brake pedal.If you have a manual Wrangler, this is going to be taken up by the clutch assembly. So you will have to wire this through the passenger side. There is a grommet over there that you'll be able to utilize. Now, this is going to come out right on the left side of your brake pedal there. We can take our switch and connect it. Now, this is going to have a little bit of 3M tape. If you want to stick this down here, make it a little bit more discreet or really wherever you'd like to attach this, you can do that at this time. Now, we're going to attach our leads to the battery using a 10-millimeter socket. I'm going to go ahead attach our negative first.Tighten that back up with that 10-millimeter socket making sure that there's a good connection, and you do the same for our positive. I am going to disconnect our fuse for this just to make sure the fuse does not pop. Reinstall the fuse, and we can cover up that positive terminal with our rubber cover here. And then at this point, all we need to do is just clean up our wiring, make sure that everything is out of the way, zip-tied, and good to go. So that is going to wrap it up for my review and install.
