Review & Install Video

Hey, guys, I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the Rugged Ridge Spartan grille fitting all 2007 to 2016 Wranglers. This is a very polarizing mod. Some of you are going to love it, and some of you are going to absolutely hate it. One thing's for sure, if you want to completely change the look of the front of your Jeep, this will definitely do the job. The Spartan grille is new from Rugged Ridge. While it shares some styling cues with other grilles that have this eyebrow design, this is completely unique. The Spartan grille gets rid of the seven slot iconic Jeep design in favor of this mesh grille up front. The grille ships with the black mesh, but if you want a different design we have American flags, we have a star, and we even have shark's teeth if that's your thing. Getting into the actual design of the grille, these are injection molded just like the OE grille so they'll hold up to stone throws on the road and tree branches off-road. Let's get into the install. This grille could not be any easier to get on the front of your jeep. You only need two tools, a screwdriver and a razor knife. This is designed to fit in the factory location using the factory hardware on all the factory mounts. The only trimming that's necessary is to invert the factory ambient air temperature sensor and a little bit of trimming around the headlights, especially if you have LED headlights installed. The whole thing gets finished off with factory like weather stripping on top. The install should take you less than an hour. Like I said, this grille is not for everyone, but if you like the style and you want to completely change up the look of your Jeep I think you found your next mod. This grille is really well built. It gives you the opportunity to customize with different mesh inserts, and the install could not be simpler. That's my review of the Rugged Ridge Spartan grille fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Military Styling. Take your 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK back to its roots by incorporating some unique military styling with a Rugged Ridge Star Spartan Grille Kit that incorporates an off-centered white, 5 point military star. This black mesh grille kit is for Jeep owners who appreciate where the design for their Jeep originated well over half a century ago. Not only that, but the mesh screen insert is designed to be interchangeable. This opens up the options to customize your JK even further. Additional inserts are sold separately.

Better Airflow for Performance and Cooling. The open design of this Star Spartan Grille Kit by Rugged Ridge facilitates more airflow to the engine bay. Increased airflow translates to improved performance and provides better cooling capabilities during off-road adventures.

Rugged Construction. This Wrangler Grille is injection molded for an OE-like fit and smooth finish. You can easily prep and paint it for a more factory look or go wild and add a custom accent color to match your personalized rig. The included star insert is crafted from durable steel and finished in a tough black finish to prevent corrosive wear for lasting style and performance.

Installation and Warranty. This Spartan Grille Kit mounts to existing factory locations but may require minor trimming for installation. This grille is designed to work with factory headlights and most aftermarket HID lights; TruckLite and KC HiLiTES LED Headlights will require trimming of the grille prior to installation. Rugged Ridge backs their Spartan Grille with a 5-year limited warranty to ensure quality craftsmanship. Some exclusions may apply, please see the manufacturer for complete details.

Application. The Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille with Star Insert is designed for use on all 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK and JK Unlimited models.

Has anyone installed this on a 2015 Jeep JK? Upon inverting the sensor, it still does not fit and pushes the sensor pin out of the metal, anyone have a solution to this? Thanks! :)

  • When installing the Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille w/ Star Insert, the ambient air temp sensor needs to be moved. That sensor needs to be flipped to avoid contact with the new grille and then everything snaps together as designed.

    Looks great, but moderate modifications needed

    The physique of this design is why I purchased this grille. While the aesthetics really make it worth it, the marketing boasts a "like manufacturers fit" this is not true. The tool list you need is not accurate. I have a 2011 JK. I had to buy a dremel to grind off portions of the headlight/ grille mount as well as my temp sensor and reposition the sensor as well for the grille to fit. Also, my personal taste is that the grille looks a tad unfinished. I knew it would have a matte black look, but it's more satin finish and looked cheap. I had it painted and looks awesome. My install (after a trip to Menards for new tools) took me about 4 hours. They also ship the standard grille insert in it no matter what so you have to remove that and place your new insert in it. Kinda silly. Overall though, great look.

    Great looking grill at a good price

    This grill seems to be good quality and it looks good on my Jeep. The instructions say to be careful cleaning it or you can damage the matte black finish, even recommends not using automatic car washes... I hope this is just overly cautious, because I like to keep my Jeep washed. Hopefully the matte finish will hold up. It doesn't fit quite as good as the stock grill, it's about 1/4" too short on the left and right sides, that's why I only gave it 4 stars.
