    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Rugged Ridge Billet Aluminum Grille Inserts, available in both black and in a polished aluminum finish. These will fit all 2007 to 2016 JKs, however, it's important to remember the Jeep changed the grille on the 2016 Sahara and special edition models, so these will not fit on those Jeeps. These inserts will definitely change up the look of the front of your Jeep. The black ones will give you that stealthy blacked-out look that a lot of you guys are after. And the polished aluminum version will definitely give your grille a pop. The vertical aluminum slats on these inserts will give your radiator and AC components a little bit of protection from stone throws or other debris coming up through the grille. However, any time aluminum is involved, the price is going to go up. So these are a little bit more expensive than the all plastic version of a similar grille insert. As I mentioned, the vertical slats in these inserts are made of a billet aluminum, which means they're going to be really strong. And if you do catch a stone throw or other debris coming up and hitting the grille on the highway, these aren't going to crack like a plastic insert would. However, the surround of the insert is plastic. It's made of a high-grade plastic that is UV-treated, so it's not going to fade or crack over time. In fact, Rugged Ridge provides you with a five-year warranty with these grille inserts, so you know they're going to be durable. As far as fitment goes, these fit really well. In fact, they have to. They're designed to just snap into place without the use of bolts or 3M tape. So if they didn't fit well, they'd just fall right off. You wouldn't be able to get them installed. So Rugged Ridge has done a really nice job with the fitment. Because these inserts are designed to just snap into place, the whole installation should take you less than 10 minutes. You'll take them out of the box, figure out which end is up, which is really, really clear when you read the instructions, and then just snap them into place. You don't even need to remove the grille of the Jeep to get these installed. I've installed a lot of things on a lot of different Jeeps, and this is by far one of the easiest modifications. Like I said, these are going to provide a little bit of protection for your radiator against stone throws and other debris coming up through the grille, but these are overwhelmingly a visual modification. And depending on your build and how you use your Jeep, you may have a larger budget or a smaller budget for something that is strictly visual. And any time that aluminum is involved, the price definitely goes up. But, for my money, if I'm going to install something like this on my Jeep, I would spend a little bit more money, get the aluminum version so I have something that I know is going to hold up really well over time and not crack and break like a plastic version might. So, whether you're looking for that stealthy blacked-out look, or you want to add some shine to your grille with the polished version of these, I'd recommend these grille inserts. They fit really well, they install very easily, and, in my opinion, they're priced fairly for the quality of the part you get. So that's my review of the Rugged Ridge Billet Grille Inserts fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

    Specs. Make your JK Wrangler look sleek and savage with the Black Billet Aluminum grille Inserts by Rugged Ridge. This 7-piece set of inserts is crafted from billet aluminum, cut from solid pieces of aluminum for maximum sturdiness and burly ruggedness. The black finish gives the pieces a stealthy, aggressive, and dangerous look, imparting a "special forces" aesthetic to your Jeep. The aluminum adds little weight to your vehicle, and is of course proof against rust and most common forms of corrosion, too. These inserts feature tough black plastic surrounds as well.

    Construction. Snapping into place in the JK Wrangler's grille, Rugged Ridge's Black Billet Aluminum grille Inserts require no tools for installation. Hardware is also unnecessary for fitment. The careful engineering of these parts ensures a perfect fit. The pieces are ultraviolet (UV) treated to prevent solar fading, and are covered by an included 5 year limited manufacturer's warranty.

    Application. The Black Billet Aluminum grille Inserts by Rugged Ridge is designed to be used on the 2007-2018 JK Wranglers.

    Please Note. This Kit will not fit the following models: Sahara (2016+ only), Sahara X, Rubicon X, Polar Edition, Dragon Edition, Altitude Edition (2015+ only), Back Country Edition and 75th Anniversary Edition.

    I already own this kit and love it. However, I want to install a hood lock and will need to cut a space out of the billet to make room for the key. I'd like to know if it's possible to buy just a single one of these inserts instead of the whole kit in case it doesn't work out the way I think it will.

      Poor materials and fit

      I purchased the most expense grill inserts that happened to also be the metal ones to better ensure a good fit and durability. These inserts are still plastic on the outer framing and the fit is poor. Actually, two of insert plastic clips broke trying to install them. Don’t recommend them.

      It took me more time to remove the packaging than to install; simply clicked into place. A little pricey vs. similar options, but you get what you pay for.

      Great Look!

      Thus far these inserts are great. They fit in without any issues and the A/C cooler/Radiator isn't exposed to possible damage. The only thing is that they snap into place with plastic tabs so we'll see how long they last. Great mod for the price. I highly recommend them!

      Very easy and simple upgrade

      These definitly look better in person over pics/video. It kind of looks too shiny in the video so I was worried, but it looks great in person. Install was very easy for the first 6, but the 7th one I had some trouble getting to snap in. For the 6 of them I had to reach into the grill with one hand to pull the grill toward me while pushing the insert in to get it to fully snap in place. Since I couldn't do that with the final one it was tougher. I finally got it somewhat snug though with only a single edge snapping in place. I'll probably remove the grill and make sure it's more secure at some point but so far it seems ok. My only beef with these are I feel they are a bit too expensive for what they are.
