Warn makes a brushguard/winch mount. I chose to use the mount without the guard

I really like the bull bar. I believe if I put anything on mine it would be a bull bar instead of a brush guard. What brand is that and how much did you get it for?
Do you think it would look good on a white one with silver two tone?

I really like it. I like them a whole lot more than brush guards cause brush guards hides that big chrome grill.

That's the reason I went with a bull bar. I didn't want to hide all the chrome with bars.

I was hoping you would respond to this guy. I saw your picture the other day on another thread and couldn't remember who you were. That looks really good. If I didn't have need of a winch that's what I would have done.
