Custom RBP style grill

Didnt want to hijack someone else thread. So I love the style that RBP grills have. And with the limited items wjs have and the extream costs of the grills I made my own.

We did a lot of dry fitting and then began to roll it out to form the curves. And more test fits.

Turned out pretty nice, before I put it back on the jeep I sprayed the radiator supports all black. Everything came out well and Im happy with it.

Fantastic job Max!! I am so glad you didnt actually put RBP products on your Jeep.... they are JUNK! They look nice, but 6 months down the road they start to rust and corrode and look like garbage.. with no help from RBP.

Yours looks great and the satisfaction of doing it yourself must be incredible...

1998 ZJ 5.9 limited in white. M1 intake and $20k+ mods brewing up in my head... SOLD

Looking for the right WJ to build into an expedition rig....
