Used 20ga Aluminum expanded metal and coated it with rustoleum bed-liner, used the typical zip tie with super glued connectors on the grill.

Finished Product:


Hardware Used

Aluminum Mesh....$50
Two Cans of Bed Liner .....$14
Misc Zip Ties and connectors....$10

My Time doing it by myself in the basement drinking beer.......PRICELESS!

Looks very nice. I've been wanting to do something similar myself. Did you cut the expanded aluminum into individual pieces for each opening or just leave it as one solid piece?

I think it looks awesome, can you post any under hood shots showing how you mounted it, does it rattle around at all?

That looks great and I've been wanting to do something similar to my Jeep also.
How much did the 20ga Aluminum cost you?

Didn't take one pic of the install... but refer to post #7 in this thread https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showth...ght=Mesh+Grill

I used 3 zip tie pads per area between the openings similar to those pics, i didn't put any at the top or bottom, once i got the aluminum in place it held tight. If needed I may add later but for now it's good.

That turned out great. Bedlining the mesh was a good idea.
