Re: Brush Guard or no?

looks nice but i would say no also, unless you took out the bars in front of the headlights and just did some modifications,

i would also recommend the matrix from 4xGuard, good solid product right there

Re: Brush Guard or no?

I wouldn't put one on my Jeep. It's way tacky for me. But if you like it that is all that matters.

I have used brush guards in the past on my Ford trucks. They reduce headlight output and drag easily in the hills.
