I've taken the bumper off several cars that are more involved than the Jeep.
The top down was easier and took less time. No need to remove parts if it's not necessary.

I can't believe this thread has turned into an argument over which way is best to install grille inserts.
Who cares as long you get them in with no damage? SHEESH!!

LOL. It is amazing that people don't know how to simply install the grill inserts. Just pick which method you are best comfortable with and go with it.

I myself did the top down method. 30 min's done and lights off.

2014 Grill Insert Swap to Honeycomb and Grill Rings Help

I never said taking the bumper off was the easiest way to swap the mesh out, it's just the way I chose to do it. Even with the bumper on the ground I had a hard time getting the stock mesh out without breaking anything.

I've pulled my B5 S4 bumper a few times back when I had an Audi just before my '08 WK. Not sure if that's really relevant to what I posted earlier but now everyone knows I can take an Audi bumper off too.

there would be enough room in there to fit a set. My friend is big in the VW scene and sells complete air ride suspensions and train horn kits through his company. I could get you a deal if your interested in a set. Let me know.

It's relevant when you mention experience.

It's relevant when you mention experience.

yea but I wasn't asking for YOUR specific experience. I was just making a general comment. Your the one taking my post to another level for no reason at all.

and nobody cares if you had an Audi and knew how to remove the front bumper. It's almost like you want to try and one up everyone by posting that picture. You have no idea the experience I have or anyone else has working on cars.

You GOTTA chill bro. It's not a good look.

Bro ...I'm not sure if you're reading the same thread I am but you were OBVIOUSLY responding to my post

"I don't see a point in possibly causing damage to the bumper by removing it if not necessary."

when you said...

"If you know what your doing then you won't damage the bumper when removing it."

...and I don't see how posting a picture of a bumper removed from my previous car when you in that same post where you OBVIOUSLY were responding to me mentioned "experience" as if I didn't have any.

Am I "one uping" by posting a relevant picture or are you the one upper by mentioning you had an s4?

Really bro? Really? ...bro

I was not responding to anything you said specifically, I just stated my opinion and kept my comment very general hoping not to offend anyone.

It's really not worth worrying about other people's opinions EXCEPT for the person asking for opinions in the first place, no? sound familiar?

Posts like this turn into a pissing match all the time because of people like you lurking the forums trying to start $hit for no reason or because you think you felt offended.

So far the only thing your right about was my Audi comment. That WAS intentionally directed at you :kiss:

I'd like to end this feud and move on. We're not really getting anywhere lol Ok?

Thanks for the offer! However, I was only kidding about the train horn . . . I was just thinking about how much easier it is to install a set of air horns when you have the complete bumper off! I installed a set of small air horns but I did it from the top down. Not nearly as easy to do . . .
Those videos with train horns are pretty bad ass, though!

Re: 2014 Grill Insert Swap to Honeycomb and Grill Rings Help

Are these inserts compatible in a 2012 GC Laredo? I hate the vertical slats and want the honeycomb grill. Just can't find a good install thread anywhere. I may have missed it though.

Thanks!

They are not but I've considered trying to do the mod anyway...need to see if the sizing works for each piece and then figure out a way to mount them to the grill. I have the blk overland mesh now and not so sure the honeycomb would be an improvement or not with the 11-13 style grill.

Re: 2014 Grill Insert Swap to Honeycomb and Grill Rings Help

I took my grill out from the top. Took out the 2 clips on top pulled forward as much as i could. I learned after doing it that if u pull the center pice with the 3 middle inserts out then u can fit through the holes to realease the side clips. Bottom left and right are a pain. A flat head with a short 90 works great
