Very nice. I think a little black plastidip on the emblem would help tie it in.

I didn't take any. I just trimmed the gutter gaurd to fit and secured it with 3m tape. Then the epoxy on top of it. Seems to hold great.

I looked at the mesh grill vs these inserts right quick. I like your version best. Going to order the inserts now. Thanks for the idea!

Looks good think I'm gonna have to do it to mine too. You might just wanna go on eBay and order the black jeep decal and put it on there. Once you peel the original off you won't be able to put it back on.
Here's my swap out:

So you didn't epoxy the gutter guard directly to the plastic insert?

How hard was it to take off the original?

Mine was easy, took about 5 minutes, but that counted the time to use masking tape and make alignment marks so I knew where to put the new one at.
