Aftermarket Jeep Wrangler Grille Styles
This is one grille that surprisingly I don’t see on the road very often which helps give your Jeep that one of a kind look. It really amps up the style of the front end and gives the JK and JKU Wranglers a really aggressive look while improving air flow into the engine. It installs easily and quickly with no drilling required and total install time running around 15 to 30 minutes even for non-techies. This version of the Ghost grille includes the mesh grille inserts which helps to improves the overall look, but they do offer this option without the lower mesh inserts. It comes shipped in Matte Black which goes with just about every color. The grille does come ready to paint if you decide you want it in a different color which you can do yourself or take it to your local body shop who will typically do it for a small fee.
Another grille that looks great and I love the two tone options that are available. The black can be paired with white, red, or blue. Of course you can always buy the solid color options too including the Matte Black which comes ready to be painted. This is another aggressive design that offers more room for air flow into the engine. Very few of the aftermarket grilles require any drilling and this is another one that doesn’t. Expect to spend less then a half hour installing it. Once the Gladiator Grille is installed expect a lot of compliments to come your way! This is an easy modification that will drastically change the overall look of your JK 2 door or 4 door Wrangler.
If Mad Max were a real person I’m sure this is the grille he would have choose for his Jeep Wrangler. Fab Fours has designed a truly one of a kind grille and front bumper combination that is completely different from any grille on the market. Not only is it made of 100% steel which gives it unmatched durability, but its fully customize-able with four removable inserts. The Grumper pairs well with a winch and is compatible with the JK and JKU stock fenders. This replaces your stock bumper and provides extreme toughness and an aggressive style that will instantly transform your Wrangler into a bad ass!
The original angry birds grille has probably been the mostly popular aftermarket grille for quite awhile now is fairly inexpensive and very easy to install. This particular version includes the mesh inserts already attached to the grille. This fits any of the JK and Unlimited 2007 to 2017 Jeep Wranglers. The Matte Black is a great choice because it pairs so well with other colors, but also because its ready to be painted if you decide to go that route. Like almost all of the grilles shown here its made of high quality ABS plastic so it will not rust, corrode, or peel.
The spartan grille has a unique look that replaces the standard slotted look with a full mesh grille that increases engine air flow and cooling which becomes even more important when off-roading and engine temperatures rise. Each Spartan grille is injection molded for a factory like fit with no drilling required. You can purchase the Spartan grille with the plain mesh grille as shown or choose to have it shipped with one of the other interchangeable insert designs including a star, American flag, skull, land shark, or even with integrated LED lights.
This is another grille that has an aggressive design and an impressive styling. The Monster grille comes shipped in black which looks great or you can have it painted to match your Jeep. It’s another grille on our list that does not require any drilling and is a breeze to install. The Monster grille is constructed of a high quality plastic which is UV-resistant and will not rust. Unlike some of the other grilles, the Monster grille does not include mesh inserts already in place over the slots, but they can be added fairly easily if you decide you want them.
This is one of the newest aftermarket grilles on the market and brings a whole new look to your Jeep Wrangler. It is similar to the Gladiator grille, but includes a few extra design choices that really make it stand out. The front has a ferocious skull design and says “I’m From TopFire” which is molded into the design. It has a perfectly finished metallic luster and will not corrode, rust or delaminate. You can match your Jeep’s color, give it another color, or make it even cooler with a multi-color design. It is tough enough to withstand light impacts and made of a sturdy, high quality plastic. This is another grille that is very easy to install and uses your existing grille hardware to mount on the front end.
The last Jeep Wrangler grille style on our list is another one that adds an aggressive look and includes a mesh insert which prevents debris from entering your engine compartment. All of the hardware needed to install it comes with it and its another grille that is an easy and quick installation. The Eagle Eye grille is made of high quality plastic that is fade resistant and will never rust or corrode. This is a really good grille choice that will certainly highlight the front end of your Jeep.
