Aries "polished stainless steel "grill guard

Hi , I put a complete grill guard on my 2006 4x4 . It was really was worth the $ 900+ with shipping I gave in looks alone . I wanted to put strenth in the lower frame horns to protect the front end from damage due to a collision .. It has 2 cross bar in front of the frame for protection . Your engine cooling radiator, a.c.condenser , oil cooler , transmission cooler ,& power steering cooler has "0" protection from anything !! So , I installed protection with the complete grill guard with head light protection . My thoughts Bud

$900! WTF... my full westin grill guard covers the entire front, has 3 cross bars (main, top and at the bottom, just below the tow hooks) it also surrounds the headlaights and has "headlight protection" grilles. Also, my grill guard was $400 BRAND NEW.
please, post a pic of this $900 grill guard, so I can laugh at you.

Excuse me, If you looked at the top of the page you would see the ad's saying Bush/Grill Guards !!!!! Before you sling insults !!!!! Use your key hole brain to scroll & see that in fact that chrome guards are $ 1144.00 + Shipping " all day" ! You can buy the black guards for $ 250 !! Now Laugh at that !! My thoughts Bud

Just to stir the pot, Aries doesn't make a stainless one for the ranger, according to This link: Amazon.com: Aries 2042-2 Stainless Steel Grille Guard - 1 Piece: Automotive

And according to this link, if for some reason its not listed, it's on Amazon for $500 for other models: Amazon.com: Aries 2042-2 Stainless Steel Grille Guard - 1 Piece: Automotive

probably easiest is as an attachment. hit "go advanced" at the bottom before you post. then you can type your post, and down below is something that says "manage attachments" click that, and upload it. see my example

Michael , It must be the econimy ? The brush guard has less metal or bars or surface area ! The one you found is not as rigid as mine ! And is almost half price . I've had mine a while . The economy model looks good ,but if you see mine it looks stronger . You can make more nickels than dollars .I guess the more exspensive model wasn't selling ? my thoughts Bud I'll try to get a picture out tomorrow
