Do any companies still make/sell grill guards?

    The ones that attach to the frame and allow you to leave the stock chrome bumper attached?

    The one on the front of mine curves under the bumper and bolts to the frame like this.

    I don't know where you can find them anymore. Maybe Smittybuilt? There is a shop here that everyone hates that's where I got my black one for $40. That was while I was being screwed by him NOT repairing my rear end correctly. I welded on the extra lil pieces for the lights.

    You might try this outfit. They used to wholesale to a distributor here but don't know anymore. One of the things about there products was you could get them with or without the frame attachment. Shipping could be a killer. LOL

    if you need a winch tray, its time to ditch the prettyboy factory bumper for something beefier. There are lots of ck5ers that can weld and would prolly make you a simple yet very effective wincher bumper for a lot less than either the flimsy warn one or the really $pendy super-trick high end ones.

    dunno if he has the time right now or what, but you might wanna drop 55willy a pm and see if he'd be interested in makin ya one.

    check out my pics, you can get that style military one for 25-50 bucks, and im sure it would still be cost effective to have it chromed if you wanted it to be. They are pretty tuff too, i nailed a mini van with mine and it saved my whole front end and only bent a little, it was a turnpike crash and it did 8600 bucks worth of damage to the van. i still have the gaurd too, i just opted to get a new one cause there so cheap around here.
