Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review of the Rugged Ridge Grille Inserts. These are available in both black and a chrome finish. And they'll fit all 2007 to 2016 JKs, except it's important to remember that they will not fit on the 2016 Sahara or Special Edition Jeeps. Jeep did change the grille a little bit and these will not fit. Now, unlike some other grille inserts that have a wire mesh or vertical slats that can provide some protection to your radiator, these are strictly visual. These are not functional at all. And that's okay. They do a good job at what they're designed to do, which is to change up the look of the front of your Jeep. So if you're looking for an inexpensive, really easy to install mod that will make your Jeep look a little different from all the other ones that rolled off the assembly line, this is a nice option. Both the black and chrome version of these inserts are built from a UV treated plastic, which means they're not gonna fade or crack over time. In fact, Rugged Ridge provides you with a five-year warranty on these grille inserts. Because of the way these are designed to install, which is to clip into place, they have to fit well or they wouldn't install at all. They'd just fall back out. And Rugged Ridge has done a really nice job with the fitment as well. These look like they could have come as a factory option right from Jeep. As I said, these are designed to just snap into place, and I can't think of a mod I've done to a Jeep that installs any easier than these do. You just walk up to the Jeep, make sure you have the side of the insert with the two tabs facing toward the bottom, and you push it into place. You don't even need to remove the grill to get these installed. There's no tape, there's no drilling, there's no bolts. They literally just snap into place. The whole installation will take you less than 10 minutes and you won't need any tools at all. So depending on what you want out of your Jeep and the direction you're going with your build, you may have money in your budget for a strictly visual mod, or you might be saving those dollars for something that adds a little bit of function. If you are somebody who's just looking to restyle the front of your Jeep, I would recommend going with these grille inserts, even over some of the other options on the market. I think they're priced fairly, they fit really well, and they're made of a high quality material, so you know they're gonna hold up really well over time. So that's my review of the Rugged Ridge Grille Insert Kit, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here, at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Specs. Snap these metal and plastic inserts into the seven grille openings at the front of your JK Wrangler, and you will give your vehicle a dashing, bold new look at minimal cost. With super easy installation and great looks, this appearance kit works great for anyone seeking unique style.

Construction. Rugged Ridge's black grille insert set includes seven pieces. These inserts are designed to snap or click into place in the grille openings with no tool needed other than the human hand. The finish is black to match other Wrangler details. The pieces are UV-treated to ensure they stay pristine even in strong sunlight. Rugged Ridge offers a limited 5 year warranty on this aesthetics kit.

Application. Fits all 2007-2017 JK Wranglers with unmodified (stock) grilles.

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.

Will this grill insert work with Tuffy Hood Lock? Will it affect the key reaching the lock in the middle opening?

  • Hello, for the Rugged Ridge Black Grille Insert Set (07-17 Wrangler JK) we are not aware of it interfering with a hood lock, as these install from the outside of the grille.

    Snappy

    Was going to buy some inserts on Amazon but I read horrible reviews about how cheaply made some were and that when you go to snap them into place they would break. Saw pretty good reviews off ET so I bought these and they are amazing. Snapped in perfectly and easily. Took me about 5 minutes to do all them. Best part is you don't need adhesive tape. And it definitely gives a stock grille a great look.

    Can't beat the price and quality; it looks even better with matching headlight rings. Makes the front end look finished and neat. Guys, read the directions, the top and bottom of the grilles are different.

    These inserts look great. They were so easy to install. They just snapped into place and fit perfect. When installed properly they are very secure. Paired then with a metal insert gives the grill a completely finished look.

    So Simple it was a no-brainer!

    These grill inserts were so simple to install and the look was so great that it was just a no-brainer to make this purchase, These literally snapped into place in minutes, and add a great look to my front grill. I have had two other jeep owners at my work comment that these looked great and both said they plan to purchase them as well. The only drawback is that they do not protect anything from building up inside your grill. A mesh backing would be great, but then again I knew this drawback when I made the purchase. These were mostly for look, since not a lot of debris penetrates my grill on my daily commute! Affordable accessory that adds a lot to your front grill. Highly recommend.

    I don't see how these protect anything at all, but they look tough and they make the Jeep look great! The price is a little steep but if you want a quick install that makes the Jeep look great these pretty much install and uninstall in 30 seconds.

    Grill now has a finished look

    Installation was literally a snap. Inserts fit into existing grill openings with little or no problems. Some inserts needed a little more persuasion than others, but they are flexible enought to allow them to snap into place. Grill has a finished look now.
