Default Best Looking Grill Guard?

Post your pictures of grill guards. Make sure you add the year of your truck and make of the guard. I would start off but im doing this so I can find out which one I like the best.

Ok guys I have a question for you tech savy types. I REALLY like the looks of the Westin Sportsman 1 piece grill guard for the 05 dodge ram 1500. Would this work on a 06. The picture they show for the 06 I do not like at all. To flashy even in black, I want a more aggressive get out of my way look.

Im wondering if the 05 guard would mount on a 06 with little modification or any at all. Here is a picture of the 05 guard that I really like.



If I was rich and had alot of money I would just buy it and see if it worked or not. Unfortunately I am not rich nor is the product returnable so I will not be buying it without knowing it will work.

Thank you ahead of time for the help.

The light guards are removable

And ya it does look pretty sick...My truck is only a 2wd truck so im not looking to do any off roading or anything. I live kind of out in a small town and to get to work its all back roads. There is ALOT of deer. Ive lost 2 cars so far(1 I really loved) to deer. The first car I hit a deer at 60, fixed the headlight and cut the bumper part that was rubbin; then hit a deer on the other side at 70 and retired the car.

SO....im scared to hit one with my truck. I love my truck and really cant afford to lose it right now, im hoping the grill guard will help with that. Plus it looks cool. Im more for function then looks tho.

Ive found this one for the 06 dodges that I like too...


All the other ones have way to much going on, not enough, or are way to flashy looking. So I might buy this one after the holidays; Also will be buying the daystar leveling kit. I will post before and after pictures for everyone. I got a promo code so after shipping to my door and everything it will be 396.87(guard and leveling kit). It has pre-drilled holes to mount lights on the center bar so I might do that later down the road to help at night but money will hold me back on that for now. I must add that im good friends with the son of a local body shop owner and he said he would install it all for free and do an alignment for free as long as I hook him up with some product he needs for the shop. Im a salesman for the Fastenal Company. Just doing business...lol...I operate off the "You scratch my back, ill scratch yours" kind of sales routine.


Let me know what you guys think!....And please post some pictures if you have a guard already...im sure people want to see them, i know i do!

^^^^ Agreed. Give them a call.

I've decided to go with a bull bar instead, low mounted, with lights in it.
