    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com and this is my review and installation of the T-REX Sport Series Formed Mesh Grille, fitting all 2007 and up JKs. This is available in the black powder coated finish that you see in here, or in a chrome finish as well so that you can get whichever one is going to best match your build. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of this grille, which is a very simple one out of three wrench installation. You do have to do a little bit of drilling into your grille but you should be able to get this installed in about an hour. We're also going to talk about the construction and a few of the other features of the grille. This is for those of you who are looking to add a formed mesh grille on to your JK and want one that is a very well built piece. This is made of some of the highest quality materials that you could build a mesh grille insert out of. It's built very well. The powder coat finish on the black version is very nice. The chrome version is polished to a mirror-like shine. This is a very well built piece. However, this is also going to be one of the most expensive mesh grille inserts you can buy for your Jeep by three times or more. There are other stainless steel mesh grille inserts that are probably not going to be 304 like this one, but they are stainless steel and they're going to be three times cheaper than this is going to be. So, if you want the highest quality materials, if you want the best hand built, made in the USA grille, this is the option for you. However, if you don't have the budget for this, if you can't understand why you would spend three times more for something that is similar but not the same, then there are certainly some other options out there for you. Rugged Ridge, Red Rock, they both make mesh grille inserts that are going to be similar in looks but not quite as high in quality. So you do have some options. As I said before, as far as the construction goes, I don't think you're going to find a better-built mesh grille insert for your JK. This is T304 stainless steel which is one of the highest quality stainless steels that you can find. Even if you were to get a chip in either the chrome or in the black powder coating, you're not going to end up with, certainly any rusting but even any corrosion on this stainless because it is such a high-grade stainless steel material. As I said before, everything from the way that the powder coat is laid down to the hardware that's included, the way this installs, the way that it's built, it all screams quality. But along with that comes a very high price tag. I know, a lot of you are gonna have trouble swallowing the fact that this is a $300 mesh grille insert when there are stainless steel mesh grille inserts on the market that are $70. But again, if you want the highest quality, then the T-REX version is the one you're going to want to look at. As far as the install goes, as I mentioned before, set aside about an hour. You are going to have to drill a couple of holes but I'm still going to give this a very simple one out of three wrench installation. The first step is to remove the front grille off your Jeep, which is done by removing the plastic clips along the top, then removing your turn signal bulbs out of the housings by just giving them a quarter turn, and finally giving the grille a pull and it will release off the Jeep. From there you can lay it face down on a soft surface, either carpet or a towel. You wanna make sure that you're not going to scratch your grille when you're doing this install. Lay it down, lay your mesh grille insert on the inside of that and line up the holes that are existing. From there you can take a magic marker, mark the holes that you have to drill, drill them out, and we use the included hardware through those new holes to bolt the rest of your drill insert into place. Once the factory grille and your grille insert are firmly bolted together, it's a simple matter of reinstalling your grille onto the Jeep, re-installing the plastic clips across the top, your turn signal wires, putting everything back together, and you're done. Again, a very easy install. And in the spots that you have to drill the holes for his, chances are if you were ever to get rid of this mesh grille, if you were ever to go back to factory, you're not really going to see those holes. You're not drilling right through the front of your grille. You are drilling through the support section towards the back, something that you're probably not going see and they are some pretty small holes. So as far as tools go, you are, of course, going to need a drill and a good sharp drill bit and your traditional hand tools. And having a trim removal tool will certainly come in handy for you removing those plastic clips to get your factory grille removed. I know I've already talked about price but it does stand to mention again that this is a very expensive version of a mesh grille insert because it is a very well built version. If you want the highest quality, if you want the highest build quality, this is going to be an excellent option. But you are going to have to pay for it and you're gonna have to pay about three times what some of the other mesh grille inserts on the market cost. Granted they aren't going to be quite as high a quality but it really comes down to a balance of budget and quality and what you want for your Jeep. So if you're looking for the best-built mesh grille available out of the highest quality materials, I would definitely recommend taking a look at this mesh grille from T-REX as long as you have the budget for it. So that's my review of the T-REX Sport Series Formed Mesh Grille, fitting all 2007 and up JKs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

      Mesh Grille

      This grille is very durable and well built. However, in reading about it initially, there was nothing about installing it on a Rubicon Recon, which I have. This was not easy due to that grille already having inserts which I did not want to remove. I did manage to install the chrome mesh grille, looks great but was a pain.

      T-Rex Chrome Grille

      Very simple project, was able to knock this out in less than 30 min, and I'm not one of these garage guys that knows everything. Very impressed with the quality of the part. I would do this again in a minute!

      Would not fit and does require drilling.

      Description of grill states "no drilling". That is not the case. You have to drill for holes along the bottom to attach grill. In my case, the grill would not line up, top or bottom with the Jeeps grill slots. Returned it back to store for a refund.

      Such a great look. I'm not sure why Jeep doesn't put this on all their cars. Adds a lot of style to your jeep.
