|Oneironaut||I'm going to go to Lowes sometime this week and pick up the supplies I need for this mod. All the awesome pics have finally persuaded me to try it out for myself. Does anyone know how large the tie mounts were that they used? I don't want to buy a size that's a quarter inch too large and won't fit between the grill openings. Thanks in advance!|

Wow I just looked at this link on now it was completely made by hand. That is crazy! I don't think I would have that much patience but it looks really cool

Edit: Didn't mean to bring this back from the dead. Please forgive me!

|011Crmn||I just did my grill on Tuesday. I went with the plastic gutter guard method and while I was at it I plasti-dipped my grill. It's snowing again now so we'll see how it all holds up. Thanks everyone for the ideas|

I did mine last week and originally used JB weld, with the sticky foam peeled off each square, but after a couple days some squares started coming off. Not sure if I didn't mix the ratio quit right, but I've used JB weld numerous times with no issues before now. Anyway, I went back and gorilla glued them all back down, and no issues so far.
Nice little mod

Finished mine up yesterday. I epoxied the zip tie squares and let them set up over night first. Easy and cheap! Thanks for the write up everyone!

Here are a few pics of the process.
Step 1: attach zip tie anchors with Gorilla Glue
Step 2: attach Grill Guard AKA gutter guard using zip ties
Step 3: Snip all the Zip tie ends.
Step 4: Re-attach grill to Jeep.
Step 5: Crack open a beer and jump in pool!!

Completed the grill mod this morning. The pictures aren't great but they work. Easy MOD that makes a huge difference.

Heres mine. I started with the original double sided tape on the tie blocks, however after a month of the great Chicago weather (85 and sunny one day and 40 and rain the next...) a few had popped loose. I removed them all and replaced the tape with 3M body panel adhesive tape (any auto parts or hardware should have it) its been golden ever since!

Posted this already, but figured I'd ad to this thread..
Yeah, did this last week. It was pretty easy. Love the look.. Only thing was, I used Liquid nails to hold the zip clips on and with the humidity, the didn't set overnight. Ended up wiping them off & using gorilla glue.. Nice & tight with metal zip ties for security.. A little red for color!

Did the grill mod this week. I used epoxy on the zip tie clips and let it dry over night. Such and easy mod to do. Thank you all for the post.
Before and Afters.

OK... I did the mesh today AND plasti diped the grill ... ran out of daylight (and warmth) so I brought the grill into the house to dry... Here are some pic's... I'll post what it looks like on tomorrow.

|su18||Anybody's blinkers stop working after this? :/ I did this mod this weekend and the lights still turn on if I turn my fog lights on but they won't work if it's just the turn signal. I also checked the hazards and they don't work either|

What an easy mod. Not sure if I'm going to even paint it. Maybe later.
