10 Rubicon has arrived and I purchased a black mesh stainless steel grill screen. Directions seem pretty straight forward about removing the front grille except for the "relocation" of an air sensor, if there is one, located at the bottom part of the grille. Has anyone done this mod. and any suggestions other than take my time and be careful not to scratch anything. Is it that easy to remove the grille as they indicate? Thanks for the help.
Where did you get the screen? I do a huge amount of rural driving and have killed more birds than I care to remember and I hate pulling their tiny little corpses from my radiator. This screen sounds like the perfect solution.
I live at 6300 feet and my place borders the Santa Fe National Forest and having lived in the western suburbs of Chicago for 40 years, I can tell you and anyone reading this that Oak Brook has no 4 wheeling allowed. You better envy me!
Or you could drive out and we could go trail riding together.
The Metal Crafters is worth every penny. I brought some hideous grill device on E Bay, it had vertical pieces that had to be tye wrapped to each slot! Ghastly device it had stick on tyre holders!..You get what you pay for.
The Metal Crafter is a well made single unit that keeps bugs and stones away from the radiator.
Thanks for the response. It is made very well and being behind the grill it's going to look great. I found a shop that's going to install it. I probably woudn't have too hard a time with it, but they've done it before so I'm not going to risk it since it's right out of the box.
Is that the same grill sold here? or is this another guy selling knock offs?
the photos look the same. Please post some picts when you get it installed. I've been thinking about getting the same one
It looks like the same one that I have behind my grill. They indicate that it's black powder coated stainlless steel, which the one I have is. Is it the same overall quality as Metal Crafters, I don't know. Again, looks the same in their photo as it does on my Rubi right down to the Flame Red. You gotta make the call on this one.
I installed this grill on my '10 Sahara....it's easy and looks great. Relocating the temp sensor is no big deal. If you want to upgrade headlights this is the time to do that as well. I got an adapter from Delta Lights that connects to the factory wiring and then plugs into any H4 headlight....I got the Hella lights. good luck
Since many people seem to be interested in making and installing a screen on their JK(by the way, does ANYONE know what the JK stands for???) Does anyone have the installation sheet from a pre-made one, so us frugal jeepers can see how it's done??? Thanks....
Just ordered the Rampage screen guard, I've been looking for something that didn't look like an add-on. I've only had TJ's 'til now, so they mounted on the outside,(weren't that attractive, or as durable as this looks). Of course they weren't $200.00 bucks either. Thanks again for the tip!!!
SORRY, I didn't mean to ask such a STUPID question, but I thought that's what this web-site was intended for, As a tool for improving our knowledge of Jeeps.
It is. It's just that you asked it and then started another thread to ask it again. It always leads exactly where your thread lead. I just figured since you owned more than one TJ, you would already know that the letter designations don't stand for anything.
