1000X better:
Agree, I have a limited, but I really like the grill on the SEMA off road jeeps.

I can because most people will think they are just inserts and easy to install. The black inserts (fins or the mesh) on all the models is the full grille that holds the entire front end together. The chrome outer cover is the only thing easily removable.

If they made the mesh grille it would have to be a full piece just like the summits. So why make an additional grille when people can buy the summits. Just my thoughts on it though.

Re: Overland Mesh Grille

Cause personally I don't like the Summit grill at all. The mesh to me is Way CLASSIER! Got a real cool Bently/Jaguar look to it, while the Summit grill looks cheesy. JMHO.

I'd pay the price for the full piece and I have a feeling others would as well.

The really frustrating thing is that they'd show the damn thing in the accessories catalog and then NOT PRODUCE IT!

Re: Overland Mesh Grille

Is it possible to get just the black mesh insert for the 2011 GC?....I have a Laredo w/ the black vertical inserts...do I have to buy the whole grill,chrome and all?

Re: Overland Mesh Grille

Wish people would stop calling this the "Mesh" grille.

This is not the Stainless Steel "Mesh" grille, but rather the grille that comes on the Summit

This is the MESH Grille:

Re: Overland Mesh Grille

That's exactly the one I want. The regular Summit grill is the same plastic with the 'chrome' being painted on the front surface. I checked it out at a JEEP dealer last week and was disappointed. I'm not a big fan of the dark wood in the Summit which is why I'm leaning toward the Overland with all the Summit options but hoping for this mesh grille. Of course, I'm talking about an early '13 model so by then, maybe MOPAR will have this puppy available?

That is a Overland SUMMIT grille on Ebay. The hex design of the standard Overland grille is just black plastic.

220783813549 Ebay item is the standard Overland grille
130521333778 Ebay item is the standard Overland grille.

I'm currently in the process of finding a shop to perform the matching paint color over the chrome finish. Once I do, I will swap out the limited/laredo stock grille and replace with a std. overland grille (along with chrome finished removed, matching MG paint color.)

The laundry list is growing including replacing the chrome door handles, mirror caps, removing door trim...and maybe, must maybe finishing the lower body clading in matching MG paint.
