Grille Brace

Hey,

OK, two JEEP suppliers I talked to on the phone, neither have a clue what I am talking about...

In my Jeep, and every other Jeep I have seen (Other than the Jeeps the suppliers drive), have Grille Braces.

When you open the hood, from the top of the firewall to the top of the grille, front to back, are two rods, one on each side. If you work on your engine, they are in the way....

Do any of you experts know where I can get one??

I guess I can buy a threaded rod at the Homey Depot and make one, but that would look hack.

THX

Garrett

I would try a salvage yard, or junk yard. You live in an ideal area for no rust.

If you can't find one new, you could try a salvage yard, maybe?

Didn't say what you were driving, but ww.newjeepparts.com
has a Grill support Rod @ $7.96 for a YJ. Couldn't get a TJ to come up.

Hope it helps.

That's too bad. Price was just too good. Good news is that they all have them so it ought to be fairly easy to locate one at a wrecking yard.
