The Westin Sportsman 1 Piece Grille Guard is extremly solid. It had four mounting spots, instead of two like some of the competitors. It also does not vibrate at all like some of its competitors. Installation was pretty easy. It installed with out having too remove the skid plate. It mounts onto the frame where the tow hooks are. It was difficult trying too remove the tow hooks because the bolts were rusted. However, once i got the tow hooks off, I installed the Grille Guard without any problem. AutoAnything sent the grille guard too me in a very timely manner. I am impressed with their service and the quality of the Grille Guard.

I have wanted a grille guard for over 5 years so I finally surrendered to the hefty price. I'm not saying this particular one is pricey, I'm saying all brands are. As other said the instructions leave a little to be desired. Not that it's complicated to figure out how to install it, (you can figure it out from the illustration) but because the bolt torque specs aren't clear. In addition it was not clear if you should reinstall the tie down loops and toe hook. The instruction did say to "install the mounting brackets between frame and tie down loops (and tow hook passenger side) with previously removed bolts". So I did reinstall the tie down loop and toe hook. However I don't see how these items can be used anymore because there is no room that a tie down strap or rope will fit through the small space between the new grille guard mounting brackets and the tie down loops. After the install the grille guard is very sturdy, when you try to shake it you shake the whole truck. However with the way it's mounted I don't see how it would protect the front end in the event of a minor front end collision. Anyway I believe the real use for grille guards is to push through brush during off road use.

The grille guard really makes my truck look a lot more rugged. Installation was fairly easy except the threads on the bolts were very soft and the nut would sieze quite easily. I actually had to get a whole new bolt when one nut got halfway on and then wouldn't finsh going on or come off and I had to break it off. I also have a concern with how easy the paint is to chip and the metal underneath to rust. But, all in all, ha I love it!
