Brush guard owners

Hey everybody i've been thinkin about gettin a brush guard for my truck so I figured I'll get some input from you guys that have them. I'm looking for a stainless/chrome style rather than black. Also I dont want a 500lb bumper replacement or anything. So anyway if you've got pics of yours or a brand name, where you got it, about how much it cost ya that kinda stuff. Thanks guys

Don't have a brush gaurd, but I do have a Bro-In-Law that used to work at a body shop and he says 60% of his business was trucks with bent frames that have had the brush gaurds welded to the frame. So my advice is to bolt it and not weld it.

Try Summit, JC Witney, Pep Boys. You want one that covers the bottom part of the grill, as many trucks get wacked there. $400-$700 seems to be the going rate.
Local truck addon shops have them too, also some trailer places.
