Re: How To: Install a mesh grill on a 08 WK

If I could do it all over again (well I still can haha) I would have probably bought some better mesh and had it powdercoated like some others have done on here...BUT @ under $20 total for the top and bottom including hardware and paint, you can't really beat the cheap mesh. Had it on for years now and only re-painted them twice. No rust (SoCal) and still looks a lot better than stock...

Re: How To: Install a mesh grill on a 08 WK

For my first mod to do to my new Jeep, I'm feeling pretty proud of myself! So glad to get rid of that cheap-looking plastic slit crap! I went with the thicker-gauge grill like someone earlier had - the 12"x24" sheets sold at Lowe's. I used a rubberized black spraypaint (Rustoleum "Undercoat") after priming, which gave it a neat texture, added to the hardiness of the paint job, and also should help prevent any possible rattling. I topped that with a couple of layers of clear-coat to add the glossy look I lost by using the rubberized paint.

Anyways, here's my finished product:

Re: How To: Install a mesh grill on a 08 WK
