Post pics of your grille guard plz!

So I've been waiting about 6 weeks for my backordered grille guard. Yesterday I decided to cancel the order and get a refund, six weeks wait for something that was "in stock stock ready to ship" is b/s. So I've been scouring the net looking for grille guards. I'm lucky to see it shown on an explorer or sport trac. I had a full waag grille guard/push bumper/headlight grille ordered up, I've been thinking alot about getting a manik as I've seen it on trevelyn's truck. That's the one I'm leaning toward. Plz post some pics and make sure to leave the brand and if possible the model. And yes rangererv, I've seen your lil waag, not my style but looks good on your truck =]. Thanks guys!

whoa tom that's HD, i need some style too. looks beefy though, i wouldn't wanna hit your front end lol.

yeah gearhead i think that's the lil waag like rangererv's. I'm looking for a full front end guard.


bigwill and blurple are those both manik's? that's what i've been leaning towards.

i know what you mean the manik kinda follows the head/corner lights really tight, that's the only thing i don't like about it.

Not the prettiest grille guard/brush guard, but it offers everything I wanted grille and headlight protection from pheasants, and tough enough to hit a deer and have no damage to front-end. There's a few more pics HERE and here

Here's mine, which is made by Genuine Steel (sold under the name of Longtek Engineering). Nice and strong.

Isn't there a WAAG bar that goes almost as high as the hood?

I've decided to go with the manik. The waag looks like its too low and the westins have been getting bad reviews about the rubberized coating. *Crosses Fingers* So hopefully i picked the right one. It was $466 w/ free shipping from speedycarparts.com. I just don't wanna wait six weeks like before. I just need a week for the body lift
