    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Rugged Ridge Perforated Grille Insert, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This is available in the black that you see here, but also in satin and a silver finish. This is for those of you who want to change up the look of the front of your Jeep just a little bit, while still retaining that factory center fog grille. This perforated insert will add some protection to your radiator and your air conditioning components, and it's a really solid and well-built piece that's appropriately pressed.This insert is a one-piece molded design that fits really well into the factory grill. It's available in one of three different finishes, either the black that you see here, a satin, or a silver finish. So no matter what look you're going for on your Jeep, you have an option that'll fit really well.This includes all of the mounting hardware and the brackets that are necessary to get it installed in the Jeep, and that's something that I really like about this grille insert over other ones of a similar style. A lot of these mesh inserts will mount with different L-brackets that are either riveted or bolted to the four corners of the insert. This uses these really heavy duty brackets that mount on the inside of the grille and hold the mesh up against the grille. You will have to do a little bit of drilling with this insert, as well as a lot of the other ones on the market. But because of the way that these brackets are designed, you're going to get a really solid installation.Speaking of installation, getting this installed on the Jeep is a really easy process. The first step is to remove your grille by removing the six plastic clips along the top of the grille and then just giving the grilled a little bit of a pull to get it off the vehicle. From there, you'll lay your new insert on the inside of the grill and line up the brackets. You'll have to mark and drill four small holes on the inside of the grille. But don't worry. If you ever do get rid of your grille insert, those holes won't be visible from the outside. Once you drill the holes, you'll use the included hardware to install the new brackets, which will hold your grille insert in place. After that, it's as easy as reinstalling the grille, and you're done. The whole process shouldn't take you more than an hour, and you'll need a drill, some drill bits, and some traditional hand tools, including a trim tool to remove those plastic clips on the grille.As far as the price and value of these grille inserts, I think you do get a good bit of value for the cost. The black is a little bit more affordable than those other finishes. But even the more expensive finishes I would rather spend a little bit more money on and get something that mounts solidly with this mounting hardware and is really well-built and looks good over some of the less expensive mesh inserts on the market that aren't as well-built and don't mount as solidly.So whether you're looking to add some protection to your radiator and your air conditioning components on the front of the Jeep or you want to change up the look of your grille, but you're looking for something a little bit more subtle than those larger grille inserts that snap in from the front, this is a really well-built, and in my opinion, accurately-priced part that installs really solidly and will definitely get the job done.So that's my review of the Rugged Ridge Perforated Grille Insert, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com

        Is it normal for the top bracket screws to cause slight buldge in grill plastic at top when reinstalling grill? Lock nut should be visible but screw head seems to lift top edge of grill behind rubber seal.

        • Yes, it is normal for a slight bulge to happen under the plastic from the head of the screw being above the factory grille surface.

            Must Modify For Stock Trim Inserts

            I own a 2018 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited JK. The grille has stock trim inserts for each vent. To get a perfect fit, you will have to cut around the clips that hold the stock trim inserts. Also, another screw in support for the center of this piece would really help. The center of this insert gives when gently pushed in from the front. Just be careful in that area, when hand washing!

            Full one piece insert Arrgh

            Super simple install. Directions are pretty much worthless. But seriously it’s 4 mini bolts. 1st time sent was heavily damaged due to poor shipping,protection. They replaced it right away. 2nd time no damage and took like 5 minutes to install. Keeps the BUGS out of my trans cooker and radiator. Works and looks great.

            Eh

            I’ll start off by saying my biggest problem with this is actually mostly my fault. After the install, the grille look great sitting in my garage floor. Once I tried to put it back on though, the lower snap on points weren’t lining up, and once I managed to wrestle them into there holes, the top push pin holes didn’t line up and I had to apply more pressure than I should have to get the holes aligned and he pins in. Now the passenger side of the grille doesn’t sit flush anymore and a small piece of the turn signal housing snapped off when trying to put it back in because it’s slot became deformed. The top pins not lining up is just from how this insert is held on, but the deformation is mostly due to where I drilled my holes to attach the bar. Could this be avoided by changing the shape of the bars that hold it in place? Probably. And couldn’t they add two more bars so that the grille insert can’t be pushed into the radiator with barely any force? Yes. But niether of those things are done, so I can’t say I really recommend this. I’m getting the drake off road inserts instead, which won’t deform my grille. But I’ll still give it two stars because it does provide protection for the radiator and I can’t say this looks bad in any way.

            Great Look, mounting brackets could be improved.

            I love the look and finish of the grille material. It looks great. The mounting brackets could be improved. It doesn't hold the grille completely firm in all areas. No rattling is heard or felt but the way the brackets are designed it will be important to check the hardware for tightness on a regular interval basis.

            Rusted out and now starting to leach rust stains over my grille. Looks really ugly on paint. Made for short term looks - should be made of ABS plastic, aluminum or other better material.

            Really nice

            I really like the subtle look of the grill insert. Materials feel really good. I didn't feel like the brackets mount as flush to the grill as I was hoping, but after getting it mounted it seems pretty solid.

            So happy with the Rugged Ridge grille insert. It gave my Jeep a more finished look that I wanted. Installation was very simple. When putting the grille back on, we had to kind of push on it in order to get the clips back in, other than that no issues.
