    Review & Installation Video

    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.

      Looks good, mounting a bit wonky

      I’ll start by saying that overall I’m happy with the purchase and given the luck I’ve had with other Rugged Rudge products, I’d likely buy again. However this is a tale of two reviews. From a pure appearance standpoint, this is a winner. The finish is excellent, a nice even dark black that looks great on my Granite Crystal JKU. I’m not as high on the mounting system. What the video install doesn’t show you is that the mounting bars create additional thickness under the top of the grill making reinstallation of the grill a challenge. I had to really work the grill back into the Jeep. In the end it all worked out but I’m not sure the bar system they have on this is the best method of securing the insert. Also, the middle section of the insert easily pushes in. It might have been better if there were three mounting bars vs just the two it comes with. Again, overall happy with the purchase but there is some room for improvement from a mounting standpoint.

      Decent product

      The material uses for the grill seems sturdy and thick enough to hold up for a few years. It would me nice to have 1 or 2 more support braces supplied for the installation. Easy install. Take you time and make sure you leave room for the fasteners to clear.

      Good, could be great

      This is a good product and I really like the look. As others have said, there should be an additional support arm to hold the grill in place. I ended up adding some foam between the Jeep grill and this to keep it from rattling. I also think the screws included for the top holes should be flat as the rounded ones that are included scratched the plastic fan shroud.

      Easy instal. And excellent tirections. The only other thing I’d recommend is on the grill panel that the flat bar holds put zip ties to hold them in place.

      great look!

      I love the look of the perforated grille insert in my '18 JKU. It gives the front end a more finished look and it keeps most bugs off the radiator, which was the main reason I purchased it. Installation was pretty quick and while it isn't a snug fit from end-to-end, it is definitely snug where the brackets are. I didn't have any zip tie holders on hand or I might have used them based on info from other reviewers but even without them I haven't noticed any problems with the insert being loose and I'm not worried about it causing any problems. I'm satisfied with the purchase.

      You get what you pay for

      It does look good when installed and sitting in the driveway but they went cheap on the parts for mounting the insert. Definitely one more bar is needed for the middle, I can already see that at highway speeds it will be pushed back from the backside of the grille. The hardware also deflects the top of grille when remounting it. Other than that it's great!

      Looks Nice, But

      The grill insert is nice and powder coated metal but I think there should be more at least one more connector bar to keep middle part more secure/connected to Jeep grill. Other than that, seems like it will last for years hopefully.

      Bent

      I only have it 4 stars because the box was damaged and the grill bent. I'm not sure if it left Extreme Terrain that way or it was the delivery service that damaged it. If it did leave the warehouse in good shape then the rating should be a 5. It was easy to install and looks great.

      I bought one for my Jeep JK and I also got one for my girlfriend's new Jeep JK. We installed them both in about 30 to 45 minutes without any problems. They made our grills look much better than before. I've had two people ask where to get the same ones for their jeeps. I sent them to extremeterrain.com.
