Does grille guard tube with LED light exist for factory JL grille/bumper? Can't find any online. don't like the kind with skid plate either. Any recommendations?

I ran into the same problem a while back. There was nothing for the Sport. So I found out we can modify the Westin lightbar for the JK to fit a JL. However, not sure if the 4xe bumper is similar.

Where's your light bar? I don't see it. Inside the grille?

What grille guard tube is that?

Here's the alternative I am thinking. So can get those amber grille LED hooked somewhere along with a tube guard.

The grill guard is the Westin light bar I mentioned in my previous post. There are 3 mount locations on top of the bar.

Does it scratch the grille? Do you have to take the tube guard off if you want to remove the grille?

Looks like rugged ridge bull bar.

Potentially, It can rub the grill so I placed rubber pads between the guard and the grill.

Yes you need to remove the guard to remove the grill. So, 5 extra minutes.

Jeep used different grille on 2022. The grid size on back of grille is different. Need to find some lights that fit the bigger grid, which has 3.5 cm x 5cm each.

Mister, you need to explain more. Is this tube guard mounted on the bumper? because rubicon might have steel bumper which is different from Sahara plastic ones.

but this one looks great.

This is the one Jeep put on their 2021 Sema 4xe. I still haven't seen them for sale yet. I may have to fabricate my own though. Absolutely love the looks.

Yeah okay. I think there might not be any in the market. @Htfan might be correct. I called rugged ridge. They are making bull bar for JL later this year. Just don’t have any at the moment with factory plastic bumper.

4xe grille grid is JT grill if you're looking for the actual black part of the grill.
