Cheap grill enhancement

I just replaced my grill with a chrome one I got from eBay. The chrome looks better IMHO. (I also posted this in my garage thread)

I've been considering billet inserts etc. but decided I don't like the way they destroy the ''Jeep'' 7-bar look. I like the distinctive seven bar look, and inserts muddle it too much for me. I like the E&G grill because it looks neat, but the Commander suddenly becomes a Range Rover instead.

So, I did something to enhance the 7 bar look even more. Here's my new grill:


And a closer look... see if you can tell what it is I did.


After a while, I'll post a close-up photo that'll make it much more obvious what I did and why the 7 bar look is enhanced.

Nope. I've added something. Hint: behind the grill.

you added window screen behind the grill to keep the bugs off the radiator and offset the chrome on the grill............

Is there a post on how you installed your driving lights?
