Need help IDing this mesh grille.

Ran across this mesh grille on the AFN website and looks pretty interested.
Pretty neat how it goes over the headlamps as well (although I'm sure it would disrupt the beam).

Anyone now who makes it?

Tried emailing AFN to no avail.

TIA.

Wait, that's on the OUTSIDE?

Yikes, you can't cover up the Iconic jeep front grille like that!

That's like putting hoop earrings on the Mona Lisa and calling her M Woww.

that looks korea-ish... those guys put a ridiculous amount of **** on any SUV... seems like they go more for quantity than quality when they start modding.

could be a one-off someone fabbed too... seen anyone else with a chainmail grill insert anywhere?

Yeah, haven't decided whether of not I like it either.
Waiting to see it by itself without the bull bar in front of it.

I'm looking for a good insert but I don't want to cover the iconic grill and lights. Behind is the way to go for me.

Don't like it, especially covering the headlights can't be good. Why would you want to eliminate more light from the head lamps.

I can get my hands on a big variety of perforated/punched plate, but I've never laid a finger on a jk. If someone can get me the overall size it needs to be,(behind grill) I will send you a piece to try

That sounds great. I appreciate it.

It's really simple. Remove 6 pins, twist out running lamps and pull from bottom where it meets the dam.
