Got busy this weekend and installed my new the JK grille inserts... Having the winch in the way didn't make it easy taking the front grille off, but with a little help from my better half got it done and I think it looks pretty good!

i had those on my jk for a few months...the bolts that you tighten to secure the inserts will rust...

They are rusting... Did you replace them?

umm... I am not going to say anything about the 5 month delay in posts...:laughing:

I was getting tired of the inserts when i noticed the bolts starting to rust. This might sound redneck, but i got my wife to lend me her "clear nail polish" to cover up/slowdown the rust.

If there is an ace hardware nearby you might get lucky and find the bolts in a stainless steal

Hey Grant, I thought I might get lucky and not get the rusty bolts but sure enough it happened. It was a real pane taking the front grille out with the winche in the way and not looking foward to replacing them right away.

Thanx for the info...

Wife likes those.. they look good, but I would always be worried about the reduction in air flow..
