What are your thoughts on this grille?

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!

Functional, as in it lets air through to the radiator, just like the factory grille?

Yep but also adds in the protection from flung rocks and debris from busting up the radiator.

I like it but would never get it. The 7-slot grill is too iconic to give up.

And I was eating when I saw those pictures of the cat and dog... thanks guys, haha.

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.
