I installed this grille guard on a 1999 Dodge Durango and it looks awesome, more than I ever could have imagined, I'm very happy with it. However the installation was difficult. I was sent the instructions for a 1997 Dodge Dakota which I first thought would be identical. It wasn't. It bolted onto my bumper frame differently in some parts, which I had to find on my own, and for the parts that did match with the instructions, the diagrams were so badly drawn and poorly worded that they were little help. Took about 3 days to sort it all out. But it all was worth it because it really does look awesome.
And a word of warning, if your car is older, check the status of all the factory bolts on your bumper frame. In my case, installation required the removal of these so the grille guard could be bolted on with them. Mine were badly rusted and stuck on and took hours to remove and I came real close to rounding off the bolts, which would have been really bad because then I would have needed professional help which could have cost $$$$$$$$$
Other than that, I am extremely happy with this grille guard and I love driving my car around to show it off. Took a lot of effort to put it on, but definitely worth it.
