Bug Screen Black For 1987-95 Jeep Wrangler

One of the first things that anyone sees when you pull up in your Jeep is the grill. You can adjust the appearance of your Jeep’s grill with an overlay. Overlays install easily and transform the front of any Jeep drastically. If you have a Jeep Wrangler, it is especially easy to install an overlay. They will simply snap into place and you won’t even have to use more than a couple of simple hand tools. For a complete look, most grill overlays have matching headlamp bezels. This way your grill won’t look out of place and you won’t have to later go and change your headlamps to make them look like they belong. You should go by the model and year of your Jeep to help you decide on a new grill.

Inserts are a great thing for any Jeep grill. You add inserts to the front of your Jeep. They hook into the grill and can change the appearance of the front of your Jeep. You can get them in several different styles and materials. Chrome is a popular choice if you like the shiny, bad boy look. You can also get black grill inserts that add a deeper definition and an unique look to your Jeep. Some inserts will help protect your engine by making sure that it does not get too hot. These kinds of inserts have an oil cooler or electric fan mounting bracket on them. You can find inserts for most models of Jeeps and as with most Jeep grill accessories you should go by the model and year of your Jeep to find the perfect grill insert.

One thing that no one likes to find on their Jeep is a bug, especially stuck inside the grill. It’s hard to clean out and simply gross. You certainly can’t show off your Jeep with that! Bug screens are the perfect solution. They fit inside the grill, often between the grill and insert. The screens protect your Jeep from bugs and keep them from getting inside the engine compartment. They also make it much easier to clean your grill when you do happen to hit a bug; you can wipe them off the screen and avoid having to take the grill off to clean it.

  1. You are so right about the bug problem in the grill. It is an unsightly problem for sure and an extremely hard area to clean. I do not have the bug screen yet but I will be getting one. I’m not sure about the headlight covers but I’ll look at them too. I’ve always wondered why the biggest juiciest bugs always seem to find their way to the grill and the windshield.


  2. I have a homemade bug screen on my Jeep and it’s not very good looking but it does the trick. I actually did not know that there were screens specifically made for this purpose. I will be checking them out as they will surely improve the looks of the grill. Thanks for the write up.


  3. The bug screen is one of the smartest buys I’ve ever made. I keep my Jeep really clean and splattered bugs are not only gross to look at, they are nearly impossible to scrub off. I nicked the paint with the brush I was using to clean off the bugs. I had the nicks touched up and got the bug screen.


  4. I read this about 3 weeks ago and at the time I would have disagreed with you that the grill is the first thing people see. Maybe it’s because you put it in my head, and maybe it really is the first thing that catches your eye. Whatever, now I would have to agree with you. I’ve been looking at the grill covers and you’ve convinced me to get one myself.
