I have a Westin like Jason's, sans the lights. I think it looks good and seems to be fairly stout. I've seen a lot of older grill-guards on trucks, and also had one on an old '89 Toyota truck that I owned long ago, that were either chrome or black and would develop a lot of rust in short order. I'm hoping these newer ones do not. I got mine at the same time as I got the truck, in March '08, so haven't had it very long yet. Mine stays outside, not in a garage, and I'm not super good about washing it real often, so we'll see how it fares through a Montana winter.

How does yours handle on the road? Mine seems to shake from side to side quite a bit while driving...

Do you mean the guard or the whole truck? I assume the guard.....no, mine does not shake and seems to be rock-solid. I notice some rippling or bouncing of the hood itself at higher speeds, but don't think that has anything to do with the guard.
