I think I am beginning to turn a new page with ownership of the PA, and rolling beater status on it. It'* nice having a car that looks beat on, because then you don't have to worry too much about local idiots.

One avenue I am curious about is grill guards/ pushbars.

So, I am hoping to get an idea what it would look like.

Here are pics of just about any angle/lighting you may want:

For styles, I would like to see this style of guard, from the caprice:

However I am also curious about other styles too, including full wrap arounds.

Thanks in advance guys, I am definitely excited to see what pops up here.

Full size pics can be had here also:

Randall,I am not that good at photos shop. One thing I can tell you from experience with my Setina push bar is,,they are not that light and my jeep springs sagged quick. I did a proper suspension lift and that is ok. Mounting is another story as well. If not done right they tend to be how do I say it, a bit of a loose push over...If a car has a real frame great, if unibody expect re-enforcing the area with steel, before mounting. I also had to use a down post removable, welded to skid plate. Now it'* a real push bar.

I gave it a go, but had trouble getting the guard to look right in the pic, it is not too bad though, just not my best work.
