Preesh. Yea, I've painted 2 or 3 sets of different stock wheels. Cheap but nice looking if you do it right.

Re: Brush Guard or no?

My concern with a brush guard off road, as well as tail light guards, etc., is it may do more damage than anything, should you hit it or catch it on something. They are designed more for aesthetics than true function, unfortunately. The middle part may be alright though and if you're just doing some mild wheelin', should be fine, also.

Now a bull bar (integrated with a steel bumper) would be cool and one that has a stout headlight/front protection, although not sure anybody makes one. The bad part is that is a lot of weight to carry around day to day, if you have to use yours for double duty, like me

Re: Brush Guard or no?

Quick question guys, is there any way I can lower this myself? It seems to be it was bolted on near the lower air dam area.



To looking like this?

Re: Brush Guard or no?

Dont forget guys. These brush guards Do nothing but protect from light branches and add looks. Eventually they all rust. The only ones that dont are the super expensive Stainless steel ones. I cant say how many times i see rusty brush guards on SUVs after only a few seasons. They cant take a hit and they cant be pulled from.

Also with the Matrix. You get what you pay for. They are built to take a beating, they include tied in tow points for 4 wheeling and they are durable and will out last these cheesy brush guards 10 fold.

This goes for any quality name brand off road bumpers and brush guards for the most part.
