    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 there a version of this grill, or do you make any other grill, that fits a 2016 Sahara?

    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.

    Brianl

    • 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.

      Finished Look Protection for My Radiator

      Installation was easy and took about 1/2 hour as I had read the instructions several times and watched the Youtube video several times before receipt. It looks great. Since the brackets fall between the two endmost grill slots, they do not provide support for the center which had a little play when pushed by finger. I fixed that using tipties, ziptie attachment points with the double stick removed, and some glue. 4 of these glued to the back of the grill near center with the zipties through the grill insert perforations worked great. Nice and solid now. Love the look. The brackets make the grill reinsertion a bit tight, but it goes back together just fine.

      I like the how the grill insert looks. However, it only comes with 2 brackets for mounting. It would be a lot more secure if they added a third bracket bar for the center of the grill.

      Average

      It’s made of good quality, but the service fell a little short. The grill guard came with no hardware, and had to wait a few more days for hardware to be shipped. After installing it was a little bit flimsy in the middle like it needs more brackets.

      its fits ... kinda

      ok so you all read the other reviews about how it should have a 3rd brace in the middle, I have to agree with that, a 3rd brace would make it much secure ... i had no issues with the installation, my issue was with the shipping ... mine was missing the hardware, so instead of emailing and complaining that the nuts and bolts were missing from the box, i just got some from my local auto parts store and used them ... the top of the grill after installation of the insert was TIGHT, but after some effort I was able to reinsert all of the plastic retaining clips ... its been 2 months since I installed the grill insert and i have no issues with rattling, movement, or anything coming loose

      Good looking grill insert

      This grill insert looks great and is easy to install. The only problems with this insert are the brackets that hold the insert to the back of the grill. 1) There is too much of a bow in the bracket which makes mine lose at the top. if I had put the amount of pressure needed to make it tighter I would have broken my grill. 2) The brackets could be a little longer, I was not able to center the bottom of the bracket to the lower clip area. 3) The top bracket is thick and makes it hard to secure the top of the grill and clip it back on. Buy at your own risk!

      Grille Insert

      The grill insert installs easy enough. Feels a little flimsy in the center because the mounting brackets are close to edge but it's secure enough to stay in place.

      Good for the money

      The grille insert covers a good amount of area to protect the radiator while still allowing a good amount of airflow. My only complaint is how flexible it is in the middle. However any rock or chunk of wood with enough mass to damage it wouldn't be airborn so I wouldn't be to worried about it.

      Simple Install

      Simple grill insert that's held in place by two rods and four screws. Requires drilling 4 holes in the grill. After installing, the grill is a little more difficult to get back on because the bracket sits between the grill and the top of the radiator crossmember. Looks great and is a really simple install.

      Rugged Ridge Perferated Grill

      Product looks good. The only reason I’m rating it a 4 is because it comes with 2 mounting brackets that are for each side and I think it should have another for the center that would hold it firmly against the grill.

      Little disappointed

      Price was reasonable, I have a 2012 Sahara and problem with the braces being a little twisted so would not line up quite straight. The bolt heads on the bolts that come with it need to be flat, if you put bolt head on top it is too hard to put grill back on if you put the heads on the bottom which I had to they still make grill hard to put on but can be done. Just think flat heads would work better. Other than that looks pretty good but still needs 1 extra brace for center.
