I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com. This is my review of the RedRock 4x4 wire mesh grille that's available in both black powder coat and a polished stainless steel version. This grille will fit all 2007 to 2016 JKs. However, it's important to remember that in 2016 Jeep did change the grille of the Sahara and the Special Edition Jeeps, so this will not fit on those. This mesh grille is for those of you who want to completely change up the look of the front of your Jeep while still maintaining that iconic seven-slot look. This will also provide some protection against stone throws and other debris coming through the grille and damaging your radiator or your air conditioning components. This grille does require some drilling to get it installed, but it fits well and it's less expensive than some of the other versions on the market. These wire mesh grilles are made from a stainless mesh, which means they're going to be really durable and hold up over a long period of time whether you decide to go with the black powder coated version or with the polished version. These grilles are made from one piece of stainless mesh that is molded and formed to fit into the slots from the back of the grille. All of the brackets are welded in place. Even though this does require a little bit of drilling, they'll install really firmly and you won't have to worry about it moving around. To get this mesh insert installed on the Jeep, the first step is to remove the grille. You'll do that by removing the six plastic clips across the top of the grille and then just pulling to release the clips on the bottom. Once you have the grille out, you can install the insert from the back side. Make sure everything is lined up properly, and then mark for the holes you need to drill. Once the holes are drilled, you'll reinstall the mesh with the included hardware and put the whole grille back on the Jeep in the reverse order of how you removed it. The whole installation process shouldn't take you more than an hour. You won't need any specialty tools, although you will need a drill and a drill bit and a socket set and a Phillips head screwdriver. There are grilles on the market that are $200 and even close to $300 for a grille insert, not even for a full grille replacement. When you consider that, I think this is really fairly priced for what you get. It's a high quality piece that fits really well even if it does require a little bit of drilling to get it installed. If you're looking to change up the look of the front end of your Jeep, add some protection to your radiator and you're okay drilling a couple of holes in your grille, I would recommend this stainless grille especially over a lot of the plastic grille inserts that are on the market. That's my review of the RedRock 4x4 wire mesh grille fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Excellent Mesh Grill
Compared to the new JL with mesh grill, I thought my JK looked unfinished, seeing the radiator behind the grill. I wanted to hide it and add some protection at the same time. This piece was exactly the look I was going for, matching the wire mesh in the cowl, and the price was right. Installation was easy and straightforward, anyone should be able to do this.Helpful (0)

I wouldn't buy it again nor recommend it. The mesh bends are not centered in grill slats and it does not line up very well. It does require some drilling on your grill (minimal).Helpful (1)

Excellent fit and look on my Rubicon Recon
This is an excellent addition to my 2017 Jeep Rubicon Recon that really transforms the look of the grill by covering up and protecting the radiator. I was told there wasn’t an insert that would fit the Rubicon Recon grill, but with a Dremel tool, I shaved down the clips on the factory inserts and the mesh grill fits perfectly.Helpful (1)

Installation was not complicated. As other reviewers, I flipped the bolts on the top to allow for clearance. Mesh appears durable and strong, and looks as good three months later as it did upon installation.Helpful (2)

Nice cheap upgrade
Wire mesh is a good fit and very cheap improvement. It is amazing how much it changes the overall front appearance. However the attachment point to the front cap are not well thought out for the top.Helpful (2)

Wire Mesh Grille
After having to replace 2 windshields I was concerned with rock damage to radiator. This grille should take care of that problem. It took a little extra time on the install to fit properly. That may be why some grille prices are so much higher. However, I am very happy with appearance and quality.Helpful (2)

Do you feel it reduces any air flow to the engine/radiator?
No, theRedRock 4x4 Wire Mesh Grille should not reduce air flow to the engine/radiator.
Will this grill insert fit a 2017 Rubicon 4 door? Also, will it rust? I had an insert that rusted in two months.
The RedRock 4x4 Wire Mesh Grille will fit a 2017 Rubicon and should not rust. This will not fit the Rubicon Recon.
how easily can this be cut to create a lock access? will it bend the area around where you need to cut damaging the grille? any advice? just trying to figure out if this will look good or if I really need to spend $300 for the mesh grille that comes with the lock access already.
This could be cut to allow access for a hood lock, but you will need to take care to avoid bending the grille, and you will want some black paint to touch up the cut area as well.
The RedRock 4x4 Wire Mesh Grille would need to be trimmed for use with a hood lock kit.
Hello! Yes you can definitely paint this mesh grille if you would like!
Yes this will fit your model.
This will work with the Recon edition.
This will not fit Chief Edition models.
lt will not fit the Angry Bird aftermarket grille.
This mesh insert probably won't fit due to the factory grille inserts like the special models that are listed that won't work with this insert.
This will fit standard Rubicon models.
This will fit your vehicle, only 2016+ Sahara models incompatible with this grille.
As this would have a perforated design it will require the current bezels to be removed to fit correctly on your model.
