Custom Grill!
 
OK here is the story,

At my job we run training classes for products that we offer. Grills being up on the list we were looking for a grill to use for our training video.....Well a soon to be named manufactrer owed us a favor. So out to my Jeep I went tools in hand. Pulled off the bumper, pulled out the grill (all actually very simple) and shipped my grill out to have a custom mesh inlayed (black chrome of course). It is going to be about another 2 weeks before i get my grill back so for the moment I have a make shift grill made of some chicken wire ($8 at home depot).

I cant post any of the pics or videos untill the project is done, I dont feel like getting fired this week! lol Ill post everything as soon as possible.

Wish me luck

Ok so the grill came in and is on my Jeep!!!!! I always love the feeling when you pry open the packaging on a new mod. The grill came from Race Mesh. I chose their gothic desgin in a black chrome. The gothic design is a flat style mesh instead of the standard round wire mesh. Install was easy took no longer than 1.5 hours start to finish with the help of another person. I have yet to install the bumper grill yet. The grills are made specifically to your vin# so my bumper grill is the entire opening. I plan on installing the tow hooks so I will be modifying it this weekend. Here are some pictures from the install. I have also taken a video and will be taking more pictures this weekend.

I need to convert the video from HD to standard in order to upload it to my comp so I will post it this weekend along with more pictures both in daytime and night time. The video dives into the install and is narated to explain the details.

If you have any questions about where I got it from or how to pull the bumper pm me.

Very sharp RG! + rep for the Race Mesh find, really nice looking.

Would you mind please posting a close up photo of the mesh? The third photo makes it look like a brushed chrome or something other than chrome?

Edit: I now see it's a flat mesh and in black chrome. Very Cool. Would still love to see a close up, please.

Thanks, well done man.
