Flat head and brute force for me.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Chrome Grille available?

Did mine today. Top down method is a pain but took a couple breaks so I wouldn't start getting too impatient. I used a flathead and some needle nose pliers that were bent at the end which worked well. Getting the center out first is key, and using straight brute force at times. You'll ruin the old ones unless you're much better than I am, which isn't hard to do. Lol. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1402800356.984077.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1402800370.649514.jpg

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Chrome Grille available?

I have also installed the chrome honeycomb mesh inserts on my own- through the top- or more to the point though the front!
I cut away at the old black ones and reached in through the gaps. Was way harder than I expected so I ended up using brute force and literally pushed them out of the clips. It felt like I was going to break it all but it done the job. A couple of the clips broke off but it didn't seem to effect the new grill going in still.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Chrome Grille available?

Be prepared to shout and scream it's not easy
Don't expect to save old grille I cut the old grille out from front which gives you access to the locking tabs most came out but a few would not budge . Brut force is required some tabs tore off I retrieve one but two remained but seems to be enough depth for the new grille insert to take hold.
Removed the two tabs on top of grille under bonnet tab shown in photo,but only used the space it provided to slip new grille down into place
It does make a huge difference and is worth it.
I then fitted the mopar side steps not without a scream or two but the car looks hot.

Took your advice, and had the radiant heat coming off the EcoDiesel. Pure force solved the problem. ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1405890422.574222.jpg

Put mine in today. I removed the bumper cover. Took about 45 minutes, start to finish.
