The Jeep grille is kind of a trademark, I like it but if you want to change it then thats up to you. Anyway a change is as good as a holiday & sometimes you just have to try something new, later you may not like it anyway. Interesting thread, I will stick to the standard 7 slot.
Guess it doesn't matter now b/c RFF is probably long gone

im sure that it would have went differently if he had posted up a modified grill of his own that he made and/or bought and installed on his jeep... people on here are much nicer to jeepers that modify their jeeps whether we like it or not, if not its usually a "to each his own" or "not what i like but more power to you for doing something you like" and mostly leave it at that.
BUT he asked for opinions and ideas... and he got mostly opinions because not alot of people on here want what he was thinking of making/selling ....
so really ... we arent bashing him, and FYI moderators are people just like anyone else on the forum with opinions, all they get is extra functions on the forum to help clean it up for what wranglerforum.com forum rules state... they can still have opinions and the like...

|chef1231||Well my understanding is there is one slot for every one of the 7 continents Jeep has been on and conquered.|

Hey I got an idea, lets not turn this into one of those other Forums that reticules others for an idea that is different. I am on this site for just that reason it is laid back and open to all ideas. A jeep is like LEGO's you build it the way you want and let others build it the way they want. I like a little Chrome on my jeep it's makes it just a little different from what everyone else has with all the flat colors. I know I'm in the minority but i still don't go around flaming others for there taste in flat black everything. Your taste is different then mine, that is what makes Driving a Jeep great, there are so many different sizes, shapes, and variations. I also think it is poor taste for a WF Moderator to get in on the bashing.
To the OP good luck on your search and post some pics when you find something "YOU" like.

Heh Heh, yea, if I was you--I'd use my jeep grill !!
|05-10-2010 11:16 AM|
|willywaxer||Yeah, good grief...cook on a cheap powder coated grill then put the dirty thing inside your jeep. Much better to get a stainless (comes clean with just water when hot) and just clip it back behind your bumper. To each their own I guess.|
|05-10-2010 10:12 AM|
Good grief, use the grill for a campfire
I've got a campfire grill-with legs and it was $29 bucks--powdercoated--
|05-10-2010 09:59 AM|
|willywaxer||On my old Land Rover Series II, the grill was a metal cross pattern that was easily removable and served as a perfect "grill", for camp cooking over a fire. This is one of the mods my JK may get if I ever got her set up for expeditions years from now. Unless it's for functional reasons, there's no reason to mess with the Jeep grill IMHO.|

|N39-W120||And if my memory serves, Jeep filed a trade mark infringement suit against Hummer over the 7 slots. It's all in the legend and changing it will offend the Almighty Architect of the Universe|
|05-10-2010 08:53 AM|
and i personally think that anything else just looks silly (including the above aftermarket product) prolly a niche out there for noobs to jeep but not for the majority...especially for the price to convert it to anything else...you can buy a winch for that price and have something useful
|05-10-2010 08:36 AM|
Here's your target demographic, btw. They like phat grilles.

We don't gotta show no stinking grills !!

How 'bout this one. Sounds like you would need to build a custom grille.
|05-10-2010 01:16 AM|
Yeah, unlikely. The 7-slot grille is a classic Jeep sign. Changing that is a bit of sacrilege to Jeepers.
If you REALLY want to change it, go for it- just expect full-well to be flamed by anyone who doesn't dig it (myself included )
Cheers- Mark W.
