    Just got it the other day! I think it looks better than the bull bars or the Westin brush guard. What you guys think?;)

    Yeah its a Ranch Hand they are made in Texas and its sorta their style. I like how it is solid steel, and the only bolts are where it mounts the rest is welded.

    I would be all over that if it didn't hide my grille. :(

    Makes sense that it would since it is called a grille guard.

    It has 4 mounting locations, two that go through the lower grill area and bolt on to the bar that goes infront of the radiator. While the other two larger ones bolt on underneath same place you would bolt on a bull bar. total like 8 bolts onto the truck. Mounting Pics Soon

    Can you mount lights to it or is the mesh in the way?

    175. Damn good deal for a solid looking deer guard. The center reminds me of Nissan pickups. I'm also curious about putting lights in the middle.
