Hey, guys, I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the Rugged Ridge Spartan grille fitting all 2007 to 2016 Wranglers. This is a very polarizing mod. Some of you are going to love it, and some of you are going to absolutely hate it. One thing's for sure, if you want to completely change the look of the front of your Jeep, this will definitely do the job. The Spartan grille is new from Rugged Ridge. While it shares some styling cues with other grilles that have this eyebrow design, this is completely unique. The Spartan grille gets rid of the seven slot iconic Jeep design in favor of this mesh grille up front. The grille ships with the black mesh, but if you want a different design we have American flags, we have a star, and we even have shark's teeth if that's your thing. Getting into the actual design of the grille, these are injection molded just like the OE grille so they'll hold up to stone throws on the road and tree branches off-road. Let's get into the install. This grille could not be any easier to get on the front of your jeep. You only need two tools, a screwdriver and a razor knife. This is designed to fit in the factory location using the factory hardware on all the factory mounts. The only trimming that's necessary is to invert the factory ambient air temperature sensor and a little bit of trimming around the headlights, especially if you have LED headlights installed. The whole thing gets finished off with factory like weather stripping on top. The install should take you less than an hour. Like I said, this grille is not for everyone, but if you like the style and you want to completely change up the look of your Jeep I think you found your next mod. This grille is really well built. It gives you the opportunity to customize with different mesh inserts, and the install could not be simpler. That's my review of the Rugged Ridge Spartan grille fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

It was amazing at first
I bought this around end of summer and put on my 2017 4 door and loved it. Even though it doesn’t have the 7... it is still awesome looking. But.... it’s rusting on the grille mesh part. Very disheartening. Now I’m not sure if I buy another grille or attempt to salvage this one with paint. But if I were to write this review at first... 5 stars... now I give it a 2 star bc it has been very little time and it is rusting.Helpful (2)

Is this grille only available in black? If available in bright white, where can I find it?
The Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille - Satin Black (07-17 Wrangler JK) only comes in black at the moment, you can have the grille taken to a shop to have it painted white.
Can you remove the wire mesh and replace it with a different one?
The mesh can be removed, however additional modifications may be required to replace it with another option.
Is the plain black grille insert available for purchase? I only see the skull, star, shark teeth and American flag inserts to purchase as separate items.
I apologize, the plain black insert is not available for individual purchase at this time on our site.
Do you seriously have a "Spartan" Grill without a white Sparta cracked helmet Grill Insert? Seems like a no-brainer given that it is a "Spartan" grill. Check online on Ebay for Sparta vehicle decals to see what I am talking about. I would buy this in a heartbeat if you had a white Sparta cracked helmet insert to go along with it. Should be an easy work up. Let me know if you go that way and I'm in.
Unfortunately the Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille is not available from Rugged Ridge with any type of marking like the decal you suggest.
Would this grill work with the raxiom led headlights?
Yes, there should not be any fitment issues using the Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille along with the Raxiom LED Headlights.
The Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille will fit with the RedRock 4x4 Grille Guard. We have not yet tried this with a bug shield or deflector to confirm fitment, but expect this to clear.
The Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille will fit a 2016 Sahara with no issues.
The bumper pictured with the Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille is the ACE JK Stubby Bumper, which we no longer carry.
Hello, yes, this will fit your 2017 Wrangler Sport 2 Door. You can use any LED Headlights we sell with this grill, which you can find here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/wrangler-jeep-jk-headlights.html#shop-by1
Hello, unfortunately we have not test fitted this grill with the new LED headlights, so we wouldn't be able to tell you if it impedes the field of projection. What we can say is that some customers install this grill with other LED headlights and so far everything has been good.
No, unfortunately the Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille - Satin Black (07-17 Wrangler JK) will not work with any type of hood lock.
