Sting Gray owners....Looking for some advice.

I have a build order started today at my dealership. Told my dealer to wait until Monday to submit the order so I could give it some thought.

Anyways, the one minor thing I'm undecided on is the grille. Debating the black grille versus the sting gray grille.

For reference, I'm doing color matched fender flares but a black top. I just like the contrast the black top brings. But I don't like the black flares.

Not sure on the grille though. Like both looks, trying to decide which I like more. I do think the black looks kinda sharp, especially with the black top. Kinda helps balance things out or something add add a little more black to the vehicle.

My thought process though....If I go with the black grille and somewhere down the line want to switch back to the sting gray grille, guessing that will be pretty tough. If I buy the sting gray grille and want to switch to black later, that's probably easy as pie to do.

Odds are though I'd stick with whatever I get.

Planning to look through more pics in this thread to help settle it. If anybody had any thoughts or sting gray pics with a black grille, would love to see.
Skip the black grille. Looks cleaner without it. I’ve had the roof off since 24 hours after I bought it in June, but I drive the exact Jeep you’re ordering.

Put on the @Bestop Sunrider for Hardtop three weeks ago. Love it! Flips open or shut in 10 seconds.

I’ve had my JL for 2.5 years and have already used it more in the past 3 weeks than having the freedom panels off.

Highly recommend the Quadratec installation video over any other or the paper directions.


Being twill the black is darker than the black hardtop but it blends well, like the doe in the 6 second clip.

I just got one myself. About to throw it on in a day or two for our trip out to Ouray.

I had exactly the same dilemma last year - was almost ready to pull the trigger on a Granite Chrystal JLUS, and at the last minute decided to go with Sting Gray with the Altitude package (18” black wheels and trim, etc). It was 110% the right choice. Granite Chrystal looks nice...but SG looks AMAZING, and would be a home run with the black wheels and grill on a Willys. There’s no question what you must do. Good luck. We’re all counting on you! ;)
That is what I picked up last week!

Excellent choice! At just a week in, I’m guessing that every time you park and walk away, you turn around 2 or 3 times to check it out from different angles - I still do it a year later! I’m just a few weeks away from putting the hardtop back on, trying to squeeze in a few more doors-off days before it’s too cold.

Checking in. Here’s my freshly lifted Sting Gray Willys on new 35” Destination XTs

Beautiful looking ride. Are the Moab wheels stock size you have the 35s on?
Thanks

Lol, I even go out to the garage at night and think of what’s ahead! But, I’m an old guy so the build will be modest.

Me too, on both counts!
