Brush Guard.... Lose it or Keep it?

I recently purchased the truck with the brushguard installed...

I wasnt looking to have one, just was an added bonus i guess. The only real advantage i have found is having an easy step to get up into the engine compartment and i have knocked a few shopping carts out of my way at walmart...

I see it either as a little extra front end insurance, or an easy money maker if i try to sell it on craigslist.

what do you guys think? I need some extra critics on it. Thanks!

I like it, really makes the front end look tough. Another thing is if you live around lots of deer, it could really save you some damage if you hit one of em.

I don't like it. Get a full replacement bumpers look much better IMO.

thats what i was thinking, its just a bolt on unit, and in event of a front end hit, i bet that thing would just fold up into my radiator and destroy the grill at a minimum...


and no, not really any deer in my area...

Id say if you have the money, you buy a full replacement bumper, bump if you dont keep it on i love the look of brushguards on trucks, especially OBS's
