Grille guards and brush guards are the same product. Legend has it that the original designers/users created these guards to prevent paint and grille scratches when driving through high brush, thus the name brush guard.
As the popularity of these guards have increased and designs have changed to cover more of the front-end, they came to be known more commonly as grille guards, sometimes spelled as "grill" guards. "Brush guard" can also refer to the light cover portions of a full grille guard.
Each of the grille guards AutoAnything sells has the combined primary use of being a sturdy front-end protector and a provider of heavy-duty looks. All grille guards will protect against scratching from driving through brush, and will provide low-speed pushing power to your front end. However, most manufacturers don't recommend using your grille guard to ram, break or drive-through any kind of objects. And, using your grille guard for pushing could mark the finish or blemish the object you're pushing.
All of AutoAnything's grille guards use an easy, bolt-on installation design. Your grille guard will mount to existing factory holes without cutting or drilling with most vehicles. Innovative mounts avoid damaging your vehicle and won't affect your original warranty. Each grille guard comes with detailed instructions for installation to your vehicle. Most models can be bolted on in half an hour or less.
All of the grille guard products we sell are custom-made for your vehicle. Each grille guard is precision designed for an exact fit to your specific year, make, model and sub-model. Custom-fitting means a sturdy, rigid fit that virtually becomes part of your vehicle.
Custom design is also reflected in the looks of your grille guard. Each of the grille guards we sell is shaped to follow the subtle contours of your vehicle creating, a stylish appearance without boxy looks.
Each full size grille guard we feature is equipped with a pre-punched light bar that can accommodate fog, driving and hi-beam auxiliary lights. Check the description of smaller grille guards to verify the product is equipped with light mounts and will accommodate your lights. Instructions for wiring your setup are included with your auxiliary lights.
T304 and T403 steel are both stainless steel alloys that are highly corrosion-resistant. T-304 has the highest chromium and nickel content of any stainless steel, making it the most corrosion-resistant material in the industry and the most commonly used stainless steel.
T403 stainless steel is highly corrosion-resistant, though it is a different alloy developed for high impact strength. Grille guards made from either of these materials are highly corrosion resistant, will likely not rust for the life of your vehicle, and have the strength to meet your needs.
