Grille Insert
So I was reading my Haynes Manual on how to remove said insert and its telling me that I have to pull the entire front end off my jeep. I have a silver insert right now and I want to put a black one in. Has anyone else changed this insert and if so did you have to pull off the entire bumper do so.

No don't need to pull the bumper off...the grill comes out very easily actually. Haynes sux for stuff like this.

Re: Grille Insert
Alright I appreciate it, now do you think it would be better to buy a new black one or should I just paint the one I have?

Re: Grille Insert
That all depends on your painting skills...just remember, it's the GRILLE, so it's the first thing you see, and it takes quite a beating from rocks, bugs, etc. A pro paint job might be the smartest route to go if you're wanting an all black grille.
If you're going to rattle can it, just be prepared to re-do every once in awhile. Someone on here plasti-dipped theirs, but that stuff is designed to peel off, so I'm not sure how durable it is. Check out the WJ section or appearance section. He had pics if I remember correctly.
