Today we're going to completely change the front end of our Jeep, and give it an aggressive look.

The factory grill on the JK Wrangler is a bit boring, and everyone loves a nice, aggressive look in Jeep. So today we're going to be installing this Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille, fitting your 2007 to 2018 Jeep Wrangler. This Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille is made of high-quality injection molded plastic, with a matte-like finish, that can easily be painted to match your Jeep. It features an interchangeable mesh grille, and it directly replaces the factory grille with no modification, to give your Jeep an aggressive look. Today we're going to install it on our 2008 Jeep Wrangler.

This Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille is actually really easy to install. The first thing I'm gonna do is open up the hood, and remove the six clips holding on the factory grille. Grab onto the bottom of the grille to pull it out of its mounting tabs. Lean it forward. Disconnect the turn signals. This is one of the main reasons why we're replacing this grille. As you can see, most of the plastic mounting tabs are actually broken, so we're just going to pop them out, and then put our new grille on.

Now we can remove the grille. At this point you can remove the turn signal housings, or you put new ones in your grille. We're going to pop these out with a flathead screwdriver. They simply come out just like that. Install your turn signal housings into your new grille. We have the grille almost on there. There's one important thing to note here. We have the Rugged Ridge Elite Headlight guards, and the do not work with this grille. As you can see right here, the grille is interfering with them, so you either need to modify the headlight guard, or modify the grille. Or just remove the headlight guards themselves.

We decided to trim our grille so it fits around the headlight guards. Now it fits perfectly, and we can finally install it. Line it up with all the tabs, and snap it into place. Reinstall your clips up top. Now for the weatherstripping. Wipe the surface with alcohol to make sure it's nice and clean. Replace your weatherstripping up top. Make sure it's nice and centered. Line the back of the weatherstripping up with this line right here on the grille. Then you can peel the back end off of the tape. Press down on it to make sure it sticks really good. Our installation is finished.

Okay, we got our Rugged Ridge Spartan Grille installed, and it looks so much better than the factory grille. I love the aggressive look, and the angry eyes. To make it fit with the headlight guards, you just need to do a little bit of trimming. It shouldn't take you too long to do it. Maybe an hour, and before you know it, you'll be heading off-road.
