    Video Review & Installation

    This Wild Boar Aggressive Nighthawk Grill is for those of you that have a 2007 and up JK and are looking to change up the look of the front of your grill by swapping it out with something a little bit different. Now Wild Boar has a different aggressive style grill. This is going to be the Nighthawk, it's going to have just a slightly different styling, which one you prefer is really going to be completely up to you. For the install of this grill, I am going to go with a very simple one out of three wrenches. Of course, that is without considering the fact that this needs to be painted. Now, there are going to be some other grills out there that give you this Angry Eye Style that have a bit of an eyebrow across the top of them. Some of those come in a matte black finish so you don't have to paint them. This one is going to be one of the more expensive options out there, and it is going to come almost pre-prepped for paint, which means that you can't just bolt this onto your Jeep, you are going to have to paint it. Even if you want it black, you're still gonna have to paint it because it does come with the same finish on. So, if you're looking for one of the highest quality grills that you can get, and you definitely are okay with painting it, you don't want something you can just take out of the box and snap onto your Jeep, then this is going to be the way to go. This grill is made of a durable ABS plastic material. It is designed to accept your factory return signal housings, which is a very nice feature, and it does still have a seven slot grill even though it is going to be a little bit shorter because of this eyebrow that's across the top. Of course, this does cover a little bit of your headlight to give you that Angry Eye Styling, so it would make a down on light output a little bit, but it actually doesn't interfere as much as some of the other versions out there. So I think you're still gonna get some pretty good light out of this. This is designed to mount pretty easily onto your Jeep, although it is necessary to drill just one hole. For the install of this grill, I'm going to go with a very simple one out of three wrenches. Of course, that is without considering the fact that this needs to be painted. Actually installing the grill onto your Jeep is less than a half an hour. But, by the time you prep and paint this and send it off to the shop, of course, that's gonna take longer, and that's something that a lot of you are not going to want to do in your driveway, especially if you're looking to color match this. If you just wanna go with black, go with a matte finish or go with a bed liner style finish, of course, this is something you can tackle at your house. Anyway, once you do have this finished off the next step is going to be removing your factory grill to make room for your new grill. In order to remove that grill, there are some plastic clips across the top that you'll have to remove. You wanna give your return signals sockets a quarter return to remove from return signal housing and then just give that grill a pull on the bottom, and it will be disconnected from your Jeep. After that, you can pinch the taps to remove the return signal housings, snap them into your new grill, go ahead and set the grill into place using a couple of the plastic pins across the top to hold it there. Once you have done that, then you can drill that single hole that's necessary to be drilled in the aluminum L bracket that comes mounted on your grill. Once you drill that, use the included hardware to attach it to the radiator core support. You'll just attach your return signal sockets back into the back of the housings, giving them a quarter return and you're finished. This grill is going to come in right around $400 which is a couple dollars more than the other version of the Wild Boar Grill that you can get that other style. If you like this one better, I don't think the price difference between the two Wild Boar Grills is going to be enough to deter you to get the other one. This is still going to be only a few dollars more. Now in general, when you're looking at an Angry Eye Style grill with an eyebrow across the top like this, Wild Boar is going to be one of the more expensive options. It's a very well-built grill so if you are looking for a premium product and you are okay painting it, this is going to be very high-quality, however, if you're on a bit more of a budget, there are some less expensive options out there. So if you're looking for a very high-quality Angry Eye Style grill, I definitely recommend taking a look at this one from Wild Boar and you can find it right here at
