WAAG Owners Enter

Well I've tried to get group buys together in the past and never worked out so I'm going a different route. For those that have the Sportster, if you can get me some pictures and specs of the actual guard and mounts. I'm gonna go see if a fabricator can make one and maybe for anyone else that would want one. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm gonna go talk to a guy who built a bumper/brush guard for one of our fire trucks to see what he could do. Most likely after court friday so stay tuned,

Already ahead of ya on that one lol. Planned on asking about from the get go for all the body lifted ones out there that would want one. I'm hoping he'll be able to do these for couple hundred bucks if I can get him some business.

FX4ME, those are some good pics. Anyone else that has more feel free to post. Really would like to see the mounting brackets and a close up front picture.

Here are some close-ups of mine right after I installed it. Lights were not on it it yet. I don't have the specs on the mounting brackets but you can see them fairly well on the side view.

Thanks for those pics Gary! Can you tell me where the top and lower brackets mount ? I can pretty much tell about the lowers but what about the uppers behind the bumper. Also what is the shape of the lower crossmember ?

The top brackets go between the bottom of the grille and the top of the chrome bumper. You have to trim some plastic trim on the bottom of the grille for it to go through.

How do the top brackets mount behind the bumper ?

If I can recall correctly, there is a bracket that mounts to the frame behind the bumper to which both the top and bottom brackets bolt to.

Those top and bottom brackets that go above and below the bumper do attach to brackets that are bolted to the frame behind the bumper. The top bracket bends down behind the bumper to reach the frame bracket. The lower cross member is just a round tube.

I did not have to trim any plastic to to get the brackets through there. I guess if you wanted the bumper to fit up higher you may have to trim something.

On mine there was like a black plastic shroud between the bumper and grille that I had to notch for each of the mounts to pass through. YMMV.

My last truck had these but my 07 doesn't so it's gonna be a base by base case. I'm gonna talk with him and see if he would be able to do these around the 200-250 price range. Gonna be sure to mention how much interest others have expressed also.
