Looking for pictures of trucks using O.E. Brush / Grill Guard ..

Looking for pictures of Trucks Running Brush / Grill Guards similar to this picture of Mater/10 pickup truck ... I just got one and thinking of mounting on my 1963 K10 ... Mine is more rounded at the ends ...

Here's one. I would say it's a dealer or buyer installed item? We took it off the tan '66, cleaned, polished, silver rattle can paint and put it on the restored '64. The bumper looks really good where the tag was. Before and after.

I have the factory optioned brush guard for my truck in my shed. Ill take a pic and post it. I really like it but took it off so I could show off the patina on my perfectly preserved grill. It did its job!!

Re: Looking for pictures of trucks using O.E. Brush / Grill Guard ..

Here is mine. I love the look of it and keep trying to decide whether or not to put it back on.







I no longer have the inner fenders that came with it originally and I'm hesitant to cut holes in my good ones now for the two rear support braces. I guess I'll think it over

Thanks 62!

I was probably 21 when I found it and bought it off a farmer. I had never seen one before and the price was right. For all the dumb things I did when I was young, I'm glad I did right on this one.
