Rubicon grille clock
 
1 Attachment(s)
So I bought a used black wrangler grille to mess with and put on the Jeep. Did a Duracoat wilderness brown mirage color and put it on my sahara tan Rubicon. I liked the two-tone look, but after a while, it just looked a little too mismatched. I didn't want to just waste the grille, so I did some work and made it my garage clock and temp gauge along with some lighting.

My only complaint is the wires hanging down. Otherwise it looks great!

That's freaking sweet!! I'll gladly let you make another and give it to me! Very nice!

Iamjrad79 04-28-2012 11:12 PM

That is awesome!

kik 04-29-2012 11:22 AM

That is nice. I would definately purchase one of those from you, in Flame Red of course. Maybe a good idea to start a small business. That came out great.

strider_mt2k 04-29-2012 12:10 PM

Fantastic!
That is extremely cool and well done too.

Do the DIY grill mesh mod on it if you don't want to see the wall through the slats! ;)

Maybe somebody like Quadratec or AEV could do these. It would be an expensive setup unless you had access to used grilles! The clock and temp gauge were only $10 each, the led light set up with covers was about $30. Other small parts were about $20 more, so really just the cost of the grille and labor would be it. I am putting a wireless remote power switch on it now, so no wires.

Looks great and will be even better wireless :thumb:

JVL 04-29-2012 02:42 PM

That's sweet. I want one for my garage now. I swear the list never ends.

Thorshammer7 04-29-2012 02:55 PM

I think that is an amazing piece that you made. I also like the idea about using a grill mesh, black of course, and the wireless remote switch. I think you're missing the boat if you don't do these yourself. There are alot of used parts yards around to find grilles. Or, have potential customers get the grille and mesh if they want a particular type and ship it to you for completion. That would probably work out as less of a headache for you. If you'll consider doing it PM me with info.

I have an old CJ grill. Now I know what to do with it. Thanks!

Should put a map behind the grill, see what kind of effect it gives.

the Kolector 05-17-2012 10:51 AM

Thats pretty bad@$$. The map idea would be pretty cool too!

951JEEP 05-17-2012 12:04 PM

panthermark 05-17-2012 12:09 PM
