Jeep Grand Cherokee Grilles
Your Jeep is built for off-road action, so give your Jeep Grand Cherokee front end a functional overhaul with a new grille. Grilles keep debris and bugs out of your front end interior and enhance your vehicle's cooling capacity. The following five answers address common questions about Jeep Grand Cherokee grilles.Can you replace just the lower grill?
You can find Jeep Grand Cherokee grilles for placement for the front upper, lower, left, and right-hand side. You may purchase each type of grille individually as needed. You may also find a set of grilles to fit both sides of your Jeep Cherokee as well as the upper and lower grille frames.
Options include Jeep Grand Cherokee grille headlight assemblies. These assemblies have front lenses with aesthetically pleasing grilles covering them. They match your Grand Cherokee's front end, giving the impression that your main grille extends seamlessly outwards and covers your headlamps. The grilles also provide additional protection to your headlamps.How do you integrate the Grand Cherokee grille and headlights?
You need a special Jeep Grand Cherokee header panel grille with headlamp mounts. Header panels vary slightly in shape from year to year, so be sure to peruse potential products according to your Grand Cherokee generation. The header panel installs over your front end like a regular main upper grille. It has two headlamp mounts on either side that let you install any assembly of your choice, such as the one mentioned above.What if you just require pieces of Grand Cherokee grilles?
You can find nearly every replaceable grille piece for the Jeep Grand Grand Cherokee and its trims, such as Laredo, Trailhawk, and Overland, as an individual part or in a set. Specific availability varies seasonally.What materials do they come in?
Chrome, stainless steel, aluminum, and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS, a thermoplastic) are the most commonly used materials. Each material has its own unique benefits, and you may encounter grilles from Jeep, aftermarket brands, and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) made of one or more.
- Chrome: An alloy prized for its strength and durability.
- Stainless Steel: Another alloy that is heavy duty and highly corrosion resistant.
- Aluminum: Sturdy enough to protect and aerate your engine yet very economical.
- ABS: Extremely durable, very lightweight, and resistant to extreme weather.
Color often passes for a finish, and color choices for Grand Cherokee grilles range from black and silver to custom colors, such as yellow, blue, and woodland brown. There are other finishes that enhance resistance to rust, bad weather, and daily abuse, such as the following:
- Powder-Coated: A matte finish that withstands exposure to the elements.
- Brushed: A textured finish used on metal to give a matte appearance.
- Polished: A glossy or semi-glossy finish that is also waterproof.
