I've installed the Rampage grill mesh on my '97 to stop the giant mutant grasshoppers in the North of our state clogging up my radiator. Easier to clean them off the mesh than pick them out from between the 7 slots.
Doesn't look like it in the pic, but the mesh is black. Also comes in polished finish but I already have enough shiney stuff on the front of my Jeep
What a PITA to install, it slides up from underneath.
The overflow bottle, radiator bash plate (if fitted) and V bracket need to come out.
The shroud, radiator and aircon radiator need to be undone and pushed back to make a gap so the mesh can be pushed up from below.
Also has an odd retention system which initially I didn't have a lot of confidence in but has held up well on many off road trips, so looks like it will be fine - hope so, because if it comes loose, everything needs to come out again.
As a positive, the mesh is very strong and would easily stop rocks, sticks, birds, bats and probably zombies
As an aside, the bolts holding the aircon radiator (on my '97) are a mystery to me. Sort of a cross between a rubber-nutsert/grommet/bolt which I suspect I've ruined by removing because I can't get them back in.
The aircon radiator is now just sandwiched between the normal radiator and the front bodywork with some rubber strips I put in there. I could use normal bolts to re-secure it but I suspect the factory fasteners have certain vibration damping properties which are important. Anyone know what the factory fasteners are called?
