2011 JK front grill removal???
 
anyone have a video or website as to how to remove the front grill off my wrangler so that i can put some black mesh behind it to keep rocks from hitting the radiator?
i checked utube but found nothing.

is it a big job?

I just made a video for you. It's uploading.

It takes about 2 minutes to take it off

It is easy to remove ! The video is right on only advice I would give is when you install the mesh grill guard DO NOT over tighten the screws that hold the mesh to the grill because it destorts the bottom of the grill I am fussy about the way things look so I had to take the grill off a second time and then loosen the screws a little so it didn't destort the bottom of the grill now it looks like factory again !

I have a winch, would i have to remove it? :(

You can remove grill with a winch but it is a tight squeeze. At least it was on my 2011 with a winch but very achievable.

Simply remove the top screws and gently pull the bottom out. The bottom is held in with clips not screws

put a towel over the winch so you don't scratch the paint of the grill.

I thought the signal lights might be tmi :)
