|285 HP||I like the RR kit, I little tweaking and it fits perfect-looks perfect, just remember nuts go on the top and make room for them by cutting black plastic radiator cover (you will never see this mod as the grill covers it) let's see it protects the auto trans cooler, power steering cooler, AC condenser, radiator. Well worth $50.|

Not sure what you mean by front face, the grill?

Did mine today. Fingers are sore from using the tin snips on the stainless steel mesh... as well as using my thumbnails to scrape off the adhesive backing on the zip tie anchors. I'm happy. The result is subtle, but sturdy. Should help protect the radiator against most rocks/debris. Since the anchors are well in place, if I want to change to a different style of mesh (or paint it a different color), it should be easy to remove and then reinstall.
Items used: 100-count 4" black zip ties ($2), 4x 10-count white zip tie anchors - 1" square (~$8 total), 3x 36"x5" black stainless steel mesh gutter guard called "Metal Lock-In Gutter Guard" ($9), zip tie gun ($6), two tubes epoxy resin ($9), 7" Tin Snips ($5).
Total project cost: $39 and I've got some new tools, to boot!

|jnm93851||Just finished the DIY (Gutter Guard) insert yesterday. Quickest upgrade ever! I think it took me all of 15 minutes to fully complete. Makes the front end look great!|

Those slab grille looks nice but for $400? No thanks.
Looking into either the Drake inserts or even the DIY method with using gutter guard.

Put on the Northridge 4x4 Slab grille:

Is yours a DIY, Javy, or did you buy a kit, and if so, which one? Looks great!

|roadrunnerjon69||We call them sticky backs...|
|06-25-2013 06:05 PM|
|OffRoadCam09||What type of adhesive of glue is anybody using to do this mod? I have a set of inserts with the sticky tabs but they keep pulling off an not staying put|
|06-25-2013 05:57 PM|
Are these the Drake inserts?
|06-25-2013 05:49 PM|
Thank you!! I may have to try this out. I like the smaller holes... with all the bugs up where I live my radiator is taking a huge beating and some of these grill guards to SFA to help with that! I'm mainly wanting it for the function, looking bad ass is the bonus!
|06-25-2013 01:55 PM|
I did these inserts instead of the wire mesh. I really like the look.
|06-25-2013 01:16 PM|
|06-25-2013 12:13 PM|
Finally did my grill insert pretty easy and cheap mod. I'm happy with how it turned out.
Before and after:
