Default Grille Guard Pics and Info?

Hey guys help me out... Looking for a grill guard for my 2010 Ram 1500. Please post any pics of your trucks with them on there. Its hard to find pics online other than ranch hand. I really want a ranch hand but they're pretty expensive. Im not interested in getting a full bumper replacment just a grille guard. Thanks guys.

I'm also looking closely at getting a Westin or Steelcraft, but there are very few pictures available. Steelcraft has one on their website, but it's just a generic picture of a 4th gen with a chrome GG. Sorry, I'm not much help.

Im running into the same problem. Theres a couple of pics on carid.com but the grille guard is different in each picture even though its the same product. If you get one post some pics so we can help people.

Hey luckyshotbrooks,

Found a pic of a Ranch Hand. This would be my pick, if I can afford it.

Ya Ive seen a ton of ranch hands I was just wondering what else was out there. I love the ranch hand but here in texas its about almost $600. I may just have to suck it up and spend it cause so far its the only one I like. Frontier makes one thats cheaper but for some reason I find it to be hideous.

i got mine in abilene, texas at rhino linings and truck accessories. i paid $350-400 for it. i cant remember...it was one of the cheaper ones, but i liked it more than ranch hand, just due to the fact mine has light bars

What brand is that? Is that made by "Go Industries"?

That is an awesome GG (and a sweet truck, too). But (just MHO) the only part I would not like is that the sides that go across the headlights don't match the lines of the truck's headlights (as seen on your last pic).

How lifted is your truck, BTW?

luckyshotbrooks - I have a ranchhand on my truck, i wish i had a picture but i dont know how to load one on here. I know that i love mine, i think i paid around 450 for mine and that was installed. , but i was willing to pay that since i feel ranchhands are very stout. I used the ones most people use where i grew up on the farms. i have had mine on my truck for over 20,000 miles. i have thought about doing the full replacement of ranchhand with the smaller one that they are now making for the 1/2, but they are over a grand, and thats too much for me... right now... only thing you have to watch on a grille guard / cattel guard is not to have a body lift then it does not bolt correctly to the frame, it will go to the bumper brackets, and my 05 had a tendancy to bend the brackets when i used it to move stuff around. hope that helps private message me if you want with your email and i can send you some pictures.
