Mike and I both have the rugged ridge mesh grill insert. We haven't had any issues with it at all. It fits just as nicely today as it did when we installed them. Had to cut out a little bit of a piece of plastic, but if you're interested, I can send you a picture. Just cut it with a razor knife. I think I read someone did it with a Dremel.

We also lined the inside of the guard with window screen to keep the smaller bugs out of the radiator as well. Mike's been running his that way for over a year and the screen has absolutely no effect on temperature. And that we just zip tied to the guard itself.

Well, I will continue to check back for more inspiration.

Have you considered painting your new rugged ridge grill insert red?

I think this looks great and was looking to do this mod myself before seeing pictures of yours.... Now I know it looks great - thanks for the pictures!

Very nice rig...You will have one sweet build yourself once you get those bumpers and hood on. I think red accents will be killer.
Thanks man! I'm hoping to have a little tribute to my DAWGS! i think it will be just enough red to get the message across! The red Spider shade might look kick ass! Thanks for all the inspiration from yours! It looks kick ass!

Here is another picture of the "Jeep Logo" without the glare. It is growing on me so I think it will stay for now.

Without the glare it looks awesome! Keep it!

I'm sure I could find it in one of your later pages, but I'll just ask here. What did you use as your mesh grille insert?

It would have looked nice for sure. White is easier to keep clean as well. You have granite crystal don't you? I love that color.

I didn't post a bigger picture because you can't really see it (in a picture) from further away. Here is a shot from further away. The glare makes it hard to see.

In the end, it won't be a ton of red, but I think the subtle integration of the red with the white/black will look good and represent the DAWGS okay! I'm also thinking about the red Spider Web shade but I'm not sure that it wouldn't be a bit to much red...

Warn 9.5cti-s

I got my Warn 9.5cti-s winch installed this afternoon. Turned out really good. I will eventually add a factor 55 link and most likely a black fairlead.
