I like the look of the black grill. I have had it for bedlined for a few years now and it really ties in all the other stuff on my jeep. My buddy(silver tj) liked it so much he did the same thing to his.

You just peel it off. Had my grill done for almost a month. Several trips through the woods and washes no problem

Mine is pladtidip, been on for about 5 months I think. At lest three trail rides, fair amount of time on the highway and a dozen our so high pressure washes. It's tough, it even holds onto the smooth glass surface of my headlights.

The trick to make it hold, Clean the surface to remove any oils our dust, do two to three very light coats, them two heavy coats.
