Bull Bar or Brush guards for 2012 Overland

Anyone familiar with brands, models, and/or installing a front end guard for a 2012 Overland. Want something stainless steel, New England kills cars with rust (without having to make a customization to the design in my shop) I have concerns about the ACC sensor in the lower bumper housing and it becoming blocked out by the steel tubing.

Thinking a bull bar, simple and meager bumper protection in the parking lot.

Re: Bull Bar or Brush guards for 2012 Overland

I have the Westin black on mine. Despite the perceived negativity about them on here, it's pretty solid and serves it's purpose if you purchase it with the mindset of deterring those idiots that back into you at 1-5 mph while parking, and I love the way it looks. I feel sorry for anyone that taps into me while parallel parking.

From this angle it may look like the bar rests on the bumper but there is actually 2-3 inches of clearance and it does not budge.

Sorry ummm I had no idea what that even was until I just looked it up.

I wonder if people use stuff like that to get around when they're drunk, I mean it would be pretty useful if you were driving impaired and you're judgement was off.
