Hi, guys. So today, we're checking out the RedRock 4 by 4 Gladiator Grille with the Amber LEDs, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers.So, if you are in search of a mod that's going to completely change the front-end aesthetic of your Wrangler, a grille is always a great place to start. And this option by RedRock will be great for the JK owner who's looking to switch up that styling with a more dynamic look and is also looking to add some accent lighting in the meantime. Now, this is going to be great for anybody who wants to upgrade their grille but doesn't want something that's completely over the top, and just wants to keep it kind of simple, but also wants to add that aggressive look. Now, this is going to have a pretty aggressive brow up top. You're going to have multiple fins on the bottom as well as the top, which I do personally like. That's a little added touch that not a lot of other grilles have to offer, and then it's going to be split in the middle by those five amber LEDs. Now, I personally, really like those, considering that that's going to add a lot of extra styling to the front-end of the Jeep, and it's going to mesh really well with the turn signals that are mounted up to the grille and also the marker lights on the side. Now, again, this is going to be great for somebody who doesn't want a grille that's completely over the top and is looking for LED lights integrated into the grille that's not necessarily an LED light bar. They're just looking for a little bit of an accent to the front-end of the JK.Now, with all that being said, this is going to come in at roughly $200, and in my personal opinion, I think that that's definitely worth that price point for what you're getting out of the kit. So, not only are you getting the dynamic styling that the grille has to offer, you're getting that accent lighting that's also not over the top but it's going to give a really good look to the front-end of the Jeep, in my opinion. And then you're also getting everything that you need in order to install it. Now, this is going to come with a full wiring harness and you just have to use two clips to tap into your side marker light, and then you're all done as far as the install is concerned. So, really this is going to be a no-fuss install, a no-fuss design, and it really adds a lot to the front-end as far as the aesthetics are concerned.Now, in comparison to some other options on the page, not a lot of choices are going to integrate LEDs, especially amber LEDs like this one. Some other options that do have lights a lot of the time are going to have a light bar integrated into the grille instead of just accent lighting like this. Now, we're not necessarily concerned about the LED light bar. We don't necessarily need the extra visibility out of the front-end of your Jeep. You're just looking for a little bit of accent lighting and a tough look in the meantime, this is going to be right up your alley. As far as install is concerned, like I told you guys already, this is actually going to be very easy to get on your Jeep. I'm going to give it a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, taking you no longer than an hour with some very basic hand tools. So, speaking of that install, let's jump into that now.Tools that I used for my install were a trim removal tool, a flathead screwdriver, and a pair of pliers.So, our first step to swapping up the grille is to take off the clips that are holding in the top part of our grille. I'm going to use a trim removal tool in order to do this. You can also use a flathead screwdriver. So, next on the side, we can unplug our turn signal. This is just going to consist of a red locking tab, so you just want to pull that back, then you can press down on the clip and pull it back. And we'll be disconnected. Then we can do the same thing on the other side and then pull off our grille. So, all we have to do at this point is just pull back on our grille. There's a couple of retainer clips that are holding the bottom part in, so you're just going to give it a good pull. All right. So, the next thing that we have to do is take out our turn signals. These are going to swap over into our new grille. They're really only held in by two clips, so I'm going to use a flathead screwdriver to help get those clips pressed down and push them out of the front of the grille. So, as you can see here, there are two inserts. They're each going to have a tab. So, this is going to go out the front of the grille. So, I'm just going to press this in, push that down a little bit. Same thing for this side, and then it'll pop right out. Same thing for the other one.So, before we install our new grille, I did put our factory grille on the table and I want to give you guys a little comparison, show you some of the similarities and differences between the two, and why upgrading to this is going to give you a couple more benefits than your factory grille. Now, starting off, you can tell that this is going to be a big change. Our new grille is going to have a lot more going on than our factory one. As you can tell, our factory grille is really just going to have the stock styling. It's going to be pretty plain. We're getting those traditional seven slots in the middle. It's not going to have that aggressive brow that this one does. But overall, it's going to be great for stock applications, but if you want some extra styling, this is definitely going to be a big step up for that.Now, this will be made of an ABS material, so it is going to be a little bit more rigid than our factory one, and it is going to come in an unpainted finish as you can see here, so if you want to keep it matte black or unpainted, should I say, to give it a little contrast to your Jeep, you can definitely do that. But if you want to match it to the factory pink code, you can do that as well. Now, what I do really like about this new grille is that, even though you're getting some aggressive angular designs in the middle and it is a little bit busier than the traditional seven slots, this is going to be a little bit less busy as some other choices. Some other choices are a little bit over the top, in my opinion. This keeps it pretty simple for somebody who is a fan of that. Now, I do also like the fact that this is going to come with a honeycomb insert not only down at the bottom for these fins here, but up at the top as well. It gives a little bit of extra protection to the things behind your grille like the AC condenser and your radiator so you can ensure that nothing is really going to kick up to your grille, get behind your grille and damage any of those components, which is very important.Now, what I do really like about this as well is that this is also going to incorporate those five amber LEDs. That kind of switches it up from some of the other options that even have lighting included. A lot of other options that have lights will usually include an LED light bar as where this has five accent lights, and I think it looks very sleek mounted up to the front of the Jeep. It's going to give you a little bit of an accent, little extra styling, and of course, it's going to make you more noticeable on the road to other drivers, which is always important for safety reasons. So, I do really like that out of this grille. It's not really going to have that aggressive angry eye, but it is going to add a very dynamic look to the Jeep, especially in comparison to our factory grille.Now, the other thing is that this is going to come with everything that you need in order to install it, so the weather stripping, the mounts here for the turn signals, and also all the clips on the back. This is going to come with new components for that, so obviously we have the mounts for the turn signals. We're going to have a new weather stripping up top, which is nice. We don't have to reuse this one. And it's going to make sure that the hood seals to the grille, and we're getting all new clips on the back so we don't have to use our factory clips that are usually old and worn out. Now, the other thing that is really cool about this grille is the fact that it is completely plug and play as far as the lights are concerned, and it's also very easy to wire into your marker lights. So, you'll see in just a second, but we have some vampire clips that are included. All we have to do is really clip it into our wiring harness underneath our fender for our marker light, and then it'll be all good to go. So, what do you say we go ahead and put this together so we can get it on our Jeep?So, what we need to do is grab our wiring harness. This is going to have five little plugs on it, and then at the end of this, we're going to have our leads. So, really you just have to decide which side you want to connect your leads to. For us, it doesn't really matter. We can go into either marker light. So, I'm just going to start at this side, and we're just going to plug these in. I do like the fact that it's only one harness, makes it very easy to get these installed and lit up. Cool. So, now that that is on there, if you want to tie these up and out of the way, you can. I just, kind of, tucked them into these up here. They'll stay in place. And then what we can do is grab our turn signals and pop these into place. So, they are going to be side-specific. So, all we really have to do is just push these up and through and they'll click into place. We have to give it a little pressure.All right. So, now that those are in place, what we can do is install it on our Jeep. So, what I'm going to do is take the two leads and just hook them behind this mount here for our headlight. Just make sure that they're out of the way and not going to be in the way of this retainer clip. Then what we can do is just line this up where our factory grille was with the retainer clips in the radiator support and the headlight support, and we can give it a good push. So, once they're in place, you might have to just give it a little bit of a press and then we can use our factory clips and we can clip that down in place and secure the top.Now, the ABS, because it is a little bit more rigid than the factory design or the factory material, so you may have to give it a good push. But it will stretch out and, kind of, mold to the radiator support over time. Then we can plug in our turn signals, and we can do the same thing on the other side. And then we can wire this in. So, underneath your inner fender liner, you're going to have your marker light wiring harness. There's going to be a positive and a negative. Now, this does have a clip on it. You wouldn't be able to see me actually remove the clip, but you will need a trim removal tool or a panel removal tool in order to take that off of the inner fender liner there. So, what we can do now is take our vampire clips that are in the kit and we can just open that up. So, what essentially this is going to do is take our wire, so say we're doing the positive wire, this is going to take the wire, put it into a closed channel. You can see on the other side. That's going to put it into a closed channel and we're going to put the positive wire over here into this open channel, and this metal clip is going to go to both of those wires, complete the circuit, and give power to this positive wire on our lights there.So, I'm going to actually start with the positive and we can first...I find it a little bit easier to get the wire onto the existing harness first, and then put our lead in. Might need a little flathead screwdriver just to help you out. These clips can be pretty hard to open by hand at first. Then we can grab our positive wire off of our grille here. And it doesn't matter if you have the wire exposed or not because it's going to cut through this outer shell on the wire. So, we're going to put that in there, make sure that it's butting up against that back stop there and hold those in place. Take a pair of pliers, so we can clamp down on this. Make sure that they're both connected. You can, kind of, see it from the side, at the bottom. And then once those are together and that metal piece is all the way through, then we can take this cover, clip it on the back, and that is secure. And now we have positive getting to our lights. We can do the same, exact thing with the negative one. So, at this point, what we can do is grab all of our excess wire and we can clean this up, zip-tie it out of the way. So, I just like to bundle up the excess wire. Zip-tie that together first, then we can take this and tuck it behind our inner fender liner and get that out of the way. So, once those are tucked up and out of the way, we can close up our hood, and then we'll be all set to go.So, that is going to wrap it up for my review and install. Make sure you like and subscribe.
