I need some brush guard ideas

Hey everyone!
I'm looking for a good cow catcher for my '05. I'd like one that wraps around, looks good, strong as a mother and will hold a winch. Anyone have any ideas?
THANKS!!!

Thanks Turbo, that would be great! I'm a ways away from you - just outside Houston so shipping might be a bit high but I'd love to see his work.

Ain't cheap!

I've wanted one on both trucks that i've had but they're expensive if you want a really good one. I think upwards of 800 bucks. I've always been a fan of the smittybilts. Go to www.smittybilt.com, I just went there and they have an 05 that pops up and then a brush guard fades in right on the truck and changes to different ones they offer. It should give you an idea of what yours will look like! Go Rhino's aren't bad either. www.gorhino.com

Don't break the cell tower

Hey all I gotta say is about the only thing on a ricer that should contact the front end of your truck is one of those gigantic cell phone tower looking wings that they think adds a horsepower or two! ha ha...and those things are weak, a plastic guard would hold up to one of those....

I had an excellent one that I purchased from the Ford Superduty Accessory catalog. It was on my last truck. I would also recommend anything from GoRhino! ( http://www.gorhino.com/)
I am personally going to get a Go Rhino! Rhino Charger bar for my current truck! http://www.gorhino.com/rhino-charger.html

Yeah they've got some really nice stuff! I'm leaning toward their "1000 Series" and with an MSRP around $500, it seems like a pretty good deal.
Your truck sounds VERY nice! If you have any pics upload 'em to the garage, I'd love to see it.
