Been looking at this guard for a while. It definitely didn't disappoint. Looks amazing on my truck. Very high quality, fast shipping, great price. Only complaint is that the instructions that come with it are garbage. Bad pictures, poorly written directions. Your better of using YouTube to install. However, I did install by my self in about 3 hours even with the bad directions.

I enjoy the look of my new grille guard, but it certainly was a pain to install. Installation included several different sized bolts and nuts that were not matching sizes. This made installation incredibly confusing, more than it needed to be. To have a black and white installation guide/directions made it nearly impossible to distinguish what was what on my vehicle.

This was an easy install for my '05 Colorado. I was able to do it all by myself. This was shipped via UPS Freight and they contacted me to setup delivery of which I ended up picking it up at their depot due to the safety issue of parking a 53' trailer on the two-lane highway in front of my house (was my advice). This is NOT a gigantic unit in its shipping packaging and can be transported by any size pickup. The latest revision is model 4080 for the Colorado/Canyon series of trucks. I don't know what the difference is between the other version. You don't have to remove the air valance that is on the bottom of the front bumper, just hold the vertical main brackets to where they will go and then cut the valance with a cutoff wheel or with a razor blade. Make extra room for the actual vertical part of the bumper that bolts to the bracket (I can't remember if it was on the inside or outside). You'll only need to cut about a 1/4". Obviously you have to remove the plastic splash/skid plate before you do any of this AND you will have to trim that to make it fit after installing the guard. I didn't have any crossbeam to remove as the instructions insisted (I think it is for later models). The top brackets mount to existing vertical front bumper bolts which only need to be loosened a bit to accommodate the brackets. Otherwise, KEEP THE BOLTS LOOSE when mounting so you can later get the entire assembly centered. When all is good, tighten everything up to German torque standards, "Gutentite" (no actual torque spec is mentioned in the instructions). Yes, I did this all by myself and it was slightly a pain but I fastened the top bolts first AFTER making sure the bottom brackets were correct. Later I mounted up two KC 130 watt Daylighter lights from AutoAnything.com. Search the internet forums for information on how to wire the KC lights up so that they will turn on with the high beams. Now I have a squirrel-squashin', deer-smackin' drivin' machine!

Looks great and went on super easy. Downfall was that UPS left it on driveway and after opening there was a good size nick in the metal that was prior to them wrapping box was in great condition though. Little touch up paint and looks amazing on truck

This grill looks just like the other one whose name rhymes with some resort town in Fla. panhandle....However, it costs a lot less, as it was made overseas. The instructions did not translate well and the pictures are of very little utility. Spent two hours trying to figure out why it did not fit under the tow hooks. Turns out it mounts much further back, but the drawing was pretty ambigous. Single pivot mount on the bottom, and two very flimsy top straps do not give much assurance that it would not fold over the grill and bumper on impact with something substantial. If you are looking for something to minimize damage from colliding with some unfortunate farm animal or a deer, this is not going to meet your expectation. For brush, which is it's intended usage, the Aries Grill Guard will keep your plastic headlights from being shattered or scratched, which is entirely reasonable for the investment made.
