how should i protect my radiator?

i installed a lift on my truck which made me take off my fan shrowd. this leaves my radiator unprotected so if anything flew up in there and hit the spinning fan it could hit and mess up my radiator pretty easy i could imagine. What do ranger owners with lifts do to protect their radiators? radiators are fragile.

Definitely. I have to adapt my old one since I did the SAS. I have one made of 1/8" hard stainless that has held up to some hard drubbing so I want to reuse it. I've got to cut it down and make new supports for the trailing edge of it since I don't have the drop down crossmember anymore.
