Check out the ones made by WAAG. I do not have one but was checking them out on their website. They look to be quality built.

Do you want one just for the looks or do you want one that could provide adequate protection?

Westin makes brush guards that can hold a winch also. Aries And Steelcraft are some other brands to look in to.
Here's a link to a site that sells a couple different brands of brush guards and bull bars for a decent price. I have also been considering buying a brush guard.

I would echo Ranch Hand then (or any one piece guard). They seem to be pretty sturdy. Unless they've changed something they should be a 1 piece guard.

The grill guards with the bolt on brush guards can't take much of a hit before they take out a fender themselves. My FIL has a Westin. The grill guard portion that bolts to the frame pretty sturdy but the brush guards will flex just going through a car wash. I've had a few friends with other stuff and pretty much same story with bolt together guards.

If you are going to spend the money you have already saved, save a little longer and buy a solid full front bumper. You will have looks and protection. Best of both worlds. Brush guards provide minimal protection, sometimes even cause more damage.

Where could I find more information on that? I'm not worried about looks. If I hit a deer around these parts I would like to be the winner.

Does anyone know if the Go Rhino will fit with the optional Toyota skid plate?
