Just be warned - that's the guy I bought from and it doesn't fit right.
Yup! Got mine and finally got around to installing it. It is definitely NOT stainless steel as advertised. It does not line up right, but I will leave it on until I can find a better quality one to replace it. "you get what you pay for!"

I got the one made by Rugged Ridge, without the lock hole, from amazon prime for a little over $53. It's perforated as opposed to mesh. Looks really good and the fit is excellent. I did not use the mounting hardware that came with it... used the zip tie method instead.

Nice! I'll have to see if they make one with the lock hole.

actually yes, I am going to buy some for my rig. I have the gutter mod right now. lol. Little advice. take the grill off, much easier to work with. From there clean it and apply, the flip it over and apply a few drops of silicon. I did this in case the 2 way tape ever gives out.

I highly recommend this one.

It is stainless. It fits better. Don't go ebay. I actually have the ebay one if anyone wants it. Ill give it to you for free. Just gotta cover my expenses to ship.

I bought the eBay one and it looks great. The mount holes on the bottom did not match up, so it's not screwed in there, but is secure anyway. Reinforced it with about 4 zip ties, 2 on each side.

They don't so I went with the eBay one folks recommended here. Works fine unless you're a perfectionist on how it's installed.

Thanks!

I think they do make one with the hole. In fact, I remember having to search for one that did not have the lock hole that was a reasonable price. Some of the prices out there for this item, or something similar, are ridiculous.

I just bought one on ebay, too, though the one that showed up sucked. I donít know how it happened, but the top bracket was broken off. After retack welding it, the grill would not fit due to the indentations not lining up correctly. The first three did, then it jumped the shark. I immediately hit the return button andasked for a refund. To the sellers credit, it was bubble wrapped, and the box in good condition, to the sellers discredit, he probably knowingly sent a broken grill insert. So, Iím looking for a useable insert, any ideas?
Thanks!
