    I wrote to Go Rhino and Westin but haven't heard back yet (been 3 days). I mentioned that it's the only other thing that I've wanted for the new truck and the wife said I should just go ahead and get one. Wouldn't you know it, can't find any available yet...

    Personally I wouldn't get one. I would not want to cover up the front of that truck due to it looking so good, kind of like brown bagging Reese Witherspoon, it would just ruin the whole experience.

    LMAO! Yeh, I think they look completely badass but we get alot of deer around here and I can only bag but so many. Only getting one if they don't mess up the look. Hoping the Go Rhino ones keep the new lines a bit.

    A grille guard will not hold up to a deer. You need a new bumper. Check out ARB.

    I've searched many times and still haven't seen pics. Someone has to have one on their ride by now. Let's see a pic or 2.

    Thanks Tom. Looks nice. I'm looking for something that will support a winch too. Doesn't look like this one would support that so hopefully we'll get a few more pics...
