    Review & Install 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

    Construction. These Rugged Ridge grille inserts are each made from single pieces of UV treated aluminum for lasting durability. These inserts are polished for maximum appeal, and will continue to look great over seasons of abuse.

    Protection. These grille inserts will refresh your JK's front end with a look that stands out while protecting your Jeep's paint from further wear and tear.

    Application. These inserts feature a simple, snap in installation. Fits 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 have a 2017 Unlimitted Sahara model, 4 door. Will these fit? Seems nearly impossible to find Grille Inserts to fit the Sahara's. Can you help?

        • These will not fit the 2017 Sahara as they have a dual bezel installed already.

        Can they be painted

        • Being Billet Aluminum in construction these are a bit hard to paint. They would require full prep and professional application to ensure the paint holds to this material.

            Instant upgrade to front of my Jeep

            These grill inserts couldn't be easier to install, just clean the area and then snap into place. It was also simple to see which end was the top and which was the bottom. Snug fit ensures they will not fall out.
