Overview: One piece, heavy duty, fully-welded steel grille guard specifically made to fit your full-size Chevy, Toyota, GMC, Ford, or Dodge truck. Protect your headlights and grille from shrubs, brush, rocks, debris, wayward bucks, and tall squirrels, while appearing particularly menacing in rear-view mirrors everywhere
Appreciate: Go Industries' "no-drill" mounting bracket, which allows you to mount your Rancher Grille Guard using existing holes on your truck, rather than having to drill new ones. Order the Rancher Grille specifying the year, make and model of your truck, and benefit from the fact that Go Industries has already figured out what holes are on your particular frame to work with at installation. This tailor-made approach not only results in a more rigid, vibration-free mount, but also a better looking one: the grille's profile is contoured to follow that of your truck's front end, making it look more like original equipment than an after-market add-on
Know: This is a heavy duty accessory. The Rancher Grille is built from 1.9" 14-gauge steel tubing that intersects with .25" laser-cut steel uprights, which in turn frame the 18 gauge steel grille with one-half inch punched holes. At bottom (and clearing access to your tow hooks) is a wide, massive step plate for your wide, massive foot, giving you a boost up as you access the engine bay. Standard finish is an electrostatic-applied powder coat in black (shown, top), or for a little extra you can opt for the hammerhead powder coat finish (shown, lower photo). Both finishes will remain rust-free, and resist corrosion, scratches, dings, and similar ill-effects from tall squirrel impacts
Special Comments: The Rancher Grille Guard is protected by a generous three year warranty on materials and workmanship, and one year on the finish. See Go Industries' website for a full range of additional accessories for your truck or SUV, including sidesteps, drop hitches, and headache racks. And if you don't know what a headache rack is, best not trade in your Prius, there cowboy
Cost: Suggested retail price for The Rancher Grille Guard ranges from $700 to $950, depending on truck model and grille finish
