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!

Before...


After...

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 *******, 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...
