Review & Install Video
These RedRock 4x4 Mesh Grille Inserts are for those of you that have a 2007 and up JK and are looking up to change up the look of the front of your Jeep, as well as add a little bit of protection to your radiator, all without changing up that iconic seven-slot grille. Now, there are a lot of grilles that you can get out there that will have just one solid mesh insert in the front section, of course completely changing the grille. There are the grilles that have the eyebrow on them, the angry eyes, a lot of different options there. But again, if you're not looking to completely swap out the grille but you do want to get a little bit of a unique look, a grille mesh insert like this is going to be really nice option.
Now, RedRock 4x4 does offer some inserts that are just going to be the surround area without the mesh in the center. Again, these are going to change up the look even further and they're also going to offer a little bit of protection to that radiator, which is a really nice feature. Now, as far as mesh grille inserts go, these are going to be very fairly priced in my opinion, and they're also going to fit very well. In fact, they have to. These pressure-fit into the grille, they clip into the grille, there's 3M adhesive which makes the install very, very easy, and the uninstall very, very easy. And, it also means that they have to fit properly in order to clip in and stay in place, and these do. So, I think these are gonna be a pretty good deal if you're looking to change up the look of your grille.
These grille inserts are going to be made as a durable ABS plastic. It is an automotive-grade plastic and that means that it is going to stand up to a stone throw if you were to catch a stone with one of these. They're not going to fade when they're in bright sunlight, out in the UV rays, these aren't going to turn chalky, turn gray on you, they're not going to crack. They're gonna hold up really, really well and they're gonna continue looking good for a good long time. And these do have this matte finish, which is a really nice finish. You don't have a lot of glossiness on the Jeep from the factory. A lot of those plastic black accents that are in the Jeep from the factory do have more on a matte appearance so these are going to match a lot of those. They're going to fit in very well. And in my opinion, these looked like they could have come on your Jeep right from the factory. In fact, the 2016 and up Saharas, and some of the special edition Jeeps, do have a grille insert without the mesh part, but a grille insert right from the factory. So again, this is going to be one of those mods that's almost like an OEM-plus mod, changing up the look without drastically changing the Jeep. So, everyone knows it's still a jeep, just a Jeep with some personal touches.
I'm going to give this install a very simple 1 out of 3 wrenches. You can get this done in less than an hour. Now, RedRock 4x4 does suggest that you remove the grille to get these installed. Now, I know a lot of you are going to look at the instructions, you're gonna look at the inserts and you're just gonna pop them on without removing the grille. And that's okay too, if you decide to that. The idea behind removing the grille, is that you can ensure the the clips on the back side of these are fully seated in place by being able to actually see the back side of the grille and ensure that they're installed properly. However, if you feel comfortable just popping them into the front side without taking the grille off, that's fine, too.
So, if you follow the RedRock 4x4 instructions, you have to remove the clips across the top of the grille and then give the grille a little bit of pull to release the clips on the bottom. Before you that, make sure you remove your turn signal socket from the turn signal housing, give it a quarter turn, pop it out of the way, that way you're not going to pull those turn signal wires tight. Once you have the grille completely removed, you can set it on a nice soft surface, lay down a blanket , make sure you're not going to scratch it up, and then you can insert your grille inserts from the front side, making sure that they do completely seat and completely clip into place. You'll be able to look at the back of the grille and ensure that all the plastic clips are fully seated. Once you have the inserts installed in the grille, install the grill back on the Jeep in the reverse process, just give it a push on the bottom, reinstall the clips across the top, and reinstall your turn signal sockets.
These mesh grille inserts are gonna be right around $65, which I do think is gonna be a pretty fair price for them. Of course, the version of these inserts without the mesh in the center here are gonna be a little bit less expensive from RedRock 4x4. Of course, they have less material, it would make sense that they be a little bit less expensive. Now, there are some inserts out there that are going to be significantly more expensive than these. There are some that are made of billet aluminum, there are some made of stainless steel, so of course they're going to be a little pricier. In my opinion, for an appearance item like this, are right around $50, $75 is where I like to be. I don't need billet aluminum grille inserts. I think that these plastic ones, they look good, they are going to serve their purpose and they're gonna save me some money. So, I do think these are a pretty good deal.
So if you're looking for a fairly inexpensive and easy way to change up the look of your grille, I definitely recommend taking a look at these mesh inserts from RedRock 4x4, and you can find them right here at extremeterrain.com.
