I love this grill despite the hate..

Took me a long time to bite the bullet on this grill, however I’m so happy I did. The split color to match the body really makes the grill pop! If anyone’s interested, I’ll be happy to provide you with the link, less than $170 shipped!(painted)

Very nice. Like already said, it's your Jeep, do what you like to it so YOU enjoy it.

EXCEPT CHROME!!!!! NOBODY should put excessive amounts of chrome on a Jeep. You know what they say... chrome don't get you home.

Seriously though, I was looking at a similar grill but was going to black out the areas around the turn signal lights so it looks like a skull from the front. Wait for all of the hate for that!

I really like how the body color is wrapped around the headlight.

I love it! I planned to paint mine like that but I like the solid black a lot more than I thought I would.

To each their own, you like it so it does its job. Not my flavor but also not my Jeep or money, it doesn't have to make ME happy

Did all the plastic plugs line up? I have the Spartan and the outer holes don't line up. IF I hadn't already trimmed the headlight area for the TruckLites, it would have gone back.

I love that grille! For me it doesn't matter what anyone does to their Jeep..well except when its lowered, 24" spinner wheels, neon lights on every corner and chrome plated uh...everything - that's when I just shake my head.

But yes, that grille rocks!

I dig it. I just put one on my girl's JKU a few days ago along with some LED headlights & turn signals. I think it looks pretty aggressive.

They are rounded like stock. Pretty much a JW speaker knock off.

Don't let anyone tell you its bad, the spartan grille and those angry eyes on mine are awesome. I also found that the matte is better than I thought.

I love those grilles- I think that they add a unique look to the JK. Unfortunately, I can't go this route, because of my hood lock. If they had a cutout for access to that, I'd definitely do something like this.

We all don't have the same tastes, and some will undoubtedly not care for it, but if we all liked the same stuff, all of our Jeeps would look the same. As has been said, as long as YOU like it, go for it. Great looking ride, go get it dirty!

IDK... I'm thinking front grills are like shoes; their cheap enough that you can have more than one, and they are easy to slip on. You can see that I am talking myself into it. I just don't see my wife driving it... hmmmm maybe that's a good thing.

Just installed mine
Used Xprite lights that change colors and hooked up fog lights to it. Changed DRL to run as marker lights.

If Trump can say "shithole", cuz that's what most people think, then I can say "yuck" on these grills

I wouldn't put it on mine, but that's not mine.

Do what you feel, and more power to you.
