So RBP has a grille for the JK, and I am about to become a dealer for them and I am just curious what your thoughts are on it..... I have one on my chevy and love it, but I have heard mixed things about the Jeep one.....

The 7 slot is what says Jeep to most people. Functionally good idea; asthetically, no

ACK!

The only mod that I have seen uglier than this one is the Volant snorkel and the Hummer hood insert... if fits right inbetween those mods and Rockstar wheels...lol

Damn that thing is hideous!

I kinda like it. Would be better if the star was completely filled in and "RBP" wasn't in the lower right corner though. What is "RBP" anyway? Not ringing a bell.

What is over the front? Is it a mesh? Seems like it would be better for warmer climates (let more air in) and it would keep people from having to put that metal mesh stuff behind their OEM grills to protect their radiators.

When the JK first came out I thought it was UGLY...but it grew on me. I think if this grill were around more, it may grow on people. Dunno.

That's why I'm here to waste time and I'm sure the grille can handle it. It has a protective mesh:D

I'm with Jason, I think the extra logo is too much. Overall, it doesn't look that bad to me but like others said, it just changes the look so it's not a Jeep anymore. That in itself makes it kind of wierd. Not for me.

You are correct.. nothing about this grill makes it no longer a Jeep... this grill just makes it an ugly Jeep.

It just reminded me of the pics of one of those custom fiberglass kits where you have to look twice to figure out what it is.

RBP makes some cool chit, I have some on my F250, but there is something about a stock Jeep grill that IMO is hard to improve upon - it is an identity thing. Is it cheap plastic that lets rocks and stuff fly in and ding your radiator - yes - can they make a better one that has a built in mesh and is tougher - sure - but it's cool! OIIIO

I agree that it should never be put on a Jeep, but if you take an unbiased person who knows nothing about cars (everyone of you knows at least 1 of these people) then I think they would say it's not bad looking. RBP does this style of grill for ever single model of vehicle they sell parts for, even freight liners. I bet even the employees don't really like it... ask them.
