      Review & Installation Video

      I'm Ryan from, 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

      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.

        No fit

        This did not fit my 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sahara unlimited unfortunately. I really liked the quality of material used and how it was assembled. Hopefully they will come out with a grill cover like this that will fit my rig!

        This is worth the purchase

        I am glad I chose the aluminum grill inserts over the plastic. These grill inserts can take on any debris that comes its way. The installation was also easy.

        Rugged Ridge Billet Aluminum Grille Inserts

        Good product. Easy to install. I found it easier to loosen the top of the grill so you could get one hand in the back to help with the clips grabbing the back side of the grill. Just pull the plastic pin out
