Mark Allen, Designer at Jeep, Hates the JK Grill? What?
Mark Allen is the head of design at Jeep, so he does have some say in the grill. While it is iconic, the Autofocus guys dug in and looked at what has been used in previous incarnations. What they found will probably not help Allen’s case as not only has the Wrangler grill has multiple slots, it’s had multiple shapes and is actually a Ford Motor Company design.
