Sounds like Nissans aren't that much better than Jeeps after all.

Purchased a 9er grill

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals

Damn, was going to try snagging a door harness before you got rid of it. Oh well

I love my Niner grille. It changes the whole look of the front of a ZJ. I just hope I don't bash the front end on a trail somehow now. Lol.

That's one of those parts that's not easily/cheaply replaced.

Ha. I'm surprised no company has tried to buy the rights to reproduce them or at least make a knock off of it. I can get a knock off Impala SS grille for my car for about $30. That'd be killer if they could be had for that cheap.

They would sell a ton if they did. That's a good idea.
