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.

Chrome grill inserts
The lower clips kept popping loose as I pressed the upper section in. I'll have to put at least double sided tape at bottom for fear they would pop out once vibration occurs from driving on the road.Helpful (7)

Needs to be tighter fitting
Ok. Too pricey for the quality Felt it could be more snug fit. The clip doesn’t hold that well. I had to reinforce with additional double sided tapesHelpful (6)

Will any of your chrome grill inserts fit on a 2017 Jeep Sahara. Mine just pop out and pop back in,.
These will not fit 2017 Sahara models.
Will these chrome inserts fit my 2017 JK Jeep Rubicon. I see conflicts in some of the answers. It looks like some answers say the inserts will fit and others say they won't fit. I also don't know what a Rubicon X version is.
Yes, these inserts would work on any 07-18 JK Rubicon. The Rubicon X is an upgraded trim level of the Rubicon, and these will not work on that model.
We live at the beach and these inserts have green discoloration. What is best to clean them without damage?
Hello, KathyHT5U3191668 to clean chrome you can use any non abrasive soap or a chrome wheel cleaning solution found at your local parts store.
Will these chrome grille inserts fit my 2018 jeep wrangler jk sahara?
No, these Rugged Ridge Chrome Grille Inserts will only fit the JK Sahara models from 2007-2015.
Do these exterior grill inserts work in conjunction with any of the mesh panel inserts that you offer that are installed on the inside of the grill? If not, are there any combination of internal and external inserts that work well together?
No, the Rugged Ridge Chrome Grille Inserts will not install with any mesh panel inserts without modification. We would suggest doing a combination insert like: https://www.extremeterrain.com/redrock-4x4-honeycomb-grille-inserts-black-0717.html.
