Description:

They say that “everything’s bigger in Texas,” and this monstrous, Texas-made grille guard stays true to form. Go Industries Big Tex Grille Guards provide your big rig with larger-than-life front-end protection that lasts for the long haul. This bold, brawny grille guard is bursting at the seams with features to shield the face of your tough truck or SUV from bumps and scrapes when you’re on the road.

Big Tex Grille Guards are built with 1.9”, 14-gauge steel tubing for the frame and include heavy-duty uprights crafted from durable 11-gauge steel. The heavy outside welds and massive size of this Big Tex Grille Guard ensures that it won’t bend, flex or vibrate when in use.

Go Industries Big Tex Grille Guard is custom-crafted specifically for your tough truck or SUV, boasting a flawless fit. It’s designed to accentuate your vehicle’s factory lines, effortlessly matching its bold style. Installation is a cinch, since it bolts right into pre-drilled frame holes (drilling may be required for some vehicles).

Take your big rig’s defenses and looks to the next level with a Go Industries Big Tex Grille Guard. Choose from a gleaming, duplex, nickel-chrome plated finish (6-year warranty) or a rugged, black powder-coat finish (3-year warranty) to match your vehicle’s style.

Notes:
  • While most Big Tex Grille Guards fit directly into factory-drilled holes in your frame, some drilling may be required.
  • The Big Tex Grille Guard does not fit the Dodge Ram Sport or other Dodge Rams with plastic bumper covers.
  • Go Industries designed a special low-profile Big Tex Grille Guard for a select group of Chevy and GMC rigs. Besides looking tough, it prevents headlight glare from bouncing off your grille guard and into your eyes.

Taxing but looks great

Not a one man job! Very good packaging. I'm handy so I figured I could install it by myself but my son and his family were visiting so I put them to work. It turned out that the printed instructions and photos were very hard to discern. The oval section had the bolt holes on one side out of place and we had to grind out one hole to get it to fit then I had to recruit my granddaughter to place the nut on the inside of the upright due to lack of room for my hand.

Great look, fairly stout, Easy to install

Nice grill guard for the money, third one for me, Only complaint is they skimp on the hardware. The mounting bolts they supply are smaller than the original tow hook bolts. I purchased new bolts for mounting to the frame.

Instructions

The instructions did not match my parts. According to the instructions the frame brackets where the uprights bolt were supposed to be threaded, they weren't, came with nuts and four lock washers short. The bolting bar didn't come close to fitting and I wasn't going to ream my frame that much, Luckily I could reuse my bolting bar from my toe hooks. The packaging was fine there were no dents or dings. The overall quality was very good and am happy with the grill guard.

Impressive Grill

The Big Tex grill is exactly what I expected, massive and looks great on the Ram truck. The whole process from ordering, shipping and installation could not have been better. Great job.

Nice Grille Guard

Unless you've installed several of these before, don't expect this to be a piece of cake to install like on it was on 99-07 F250's. Just carefully review the instruction sheet before starting and follow to the letter. Several brackets to install before actually putting on the guard, and you have to make sure the front brackets are level before tightening the bolts. Ain't no 30 minute job, even with good help!!

Big Tex Grille Guard

Overall, this is a good product. The thing that keeps it from being great is fit. The 1.9" tubular design looks great once ou get it installed, but that's another story. I started installing my BiG Tex at 5:00 pm and finished at 8:40 and a trip to Lowes. I followed directions meticulously and found problems that required squeeze clamps and pry bars to alleviate. And, I am n experienced metal worker. It also needed two 1/2 x 2 1/4 in bolts from the upper bumper bracket to the welded clip, which w

Great Product - Poor Instructions

One would think after all the poor reviews over the years about the installation instructions a company would get the hint and get a graphic artist and do proper instructions. Or, do a YouTube video. Give me a refund and I write them for you. My set of instructions were a copy of a copy of a copy and I had to find them on-line to see the pictures which were of little value anyway. My guess is most of these are installed by professionals who know what to do. otherwise a great product. Great fit.

Grille Guard

I am well pleased with my grille guard, it is much sturdier than expected and looks great no my truck. It was a little difficult to put togather and is not a one man job because of the weight.

Big Tex Grille Guard for my Ford F-250 SuperDuty 2011

I hit a deer and it cost big bucks to fix the front of my truck. Thank God I had insurance. So I thought it would be a good idea to have a little extra protection at the front of my truck. I went shopping for a grilled Guard it took me six months to find the one I wanted. I also wanted my truck to look BAD and it does! Anyhow, I got my Grille Guard and with a little help from a friend, who is mechanically inclined, we put it altogether. I am very happy with the way it looks.

Wind Noise

Love the aooearabce of the grill guard. Had lots of compliments. The only complaint is the wind noise - sounds like blowing in an empty beer bottle at higher speeds - 65+.

poor installation instruction sheet

Everything great from AA, price and delivery, GO needs to spend another dollar/fifty on instructions, other review says "written by 12 yr old", too funny..but pretty close. Model specific pics from same angle and better lighting (flash washout), OR BETTER, drawings would help. Once interpreted and one side assembled, went smooth. Beefy structure and supports, only F350 model I found that connected at tow hooks and didn't block front hitch with crossbar. Very satisfied once installed.

Big hassle to mount

Directions must have been done by a couple 12 yr. olds. Very vague. Didn't say which was top or bottom, was short of nuts and washers and two bolts were too short. After attaching top and bottom brackets to my pickup the holes were 3/4 inch away from the attaching points on the grill guard frame. I had to pull it all together as I tightened the bolts (substandard engineering). It does look nice though.
