    We now have a Brand New bumper and grille guard out for the tree infested and deer crossing off-roader. These new structures are built by Arc-Rite located right in the U.S. in Del Rio, TX.

    The Arc-Rite Tubular Grille Guard is easy to install and mounts directly to your stock tow hook locations. This design I would see great to have around for when you are ready head into the woods, or brush, BAM! bolt it on and GO!

    Get it when you need it right at RaptorAddict.com

    I've never been a fan of grill gaurds but that is a very nice looking product. And priced well too. Getting rid of front tow hooks is a bit of a deal killer for me though...

    Does it only bolt at the towhooks? Seems like it would smash the grille and headlights if you hit a deer

    The grille guards come with special brackets that mount to your existing tow hook locations. They say the unit is really strong while taking an impact. I will find more info.

    Ya sounds like a good sales department to me. They always tell Ya what you want to hear. "Really strong" to me sounds like, Ya it's going to hit the front.

    I see what your are saying of course. There must be another bracket for reinforcement. I hope to have more info tomorrow on this.

    Arc-Rite said these bumper grille guards will definitely take a hard impact without flexing and hitting the front of the truck. How hard is a deep subject of course. These are actually mounted in 4 locations. There are lower and upper mounts. Plus I have a pic here closest to side view as possible.
    See images below.

    I'm really interested, Now seeing those tabs on the middle bar I am thinking this means I have to pull my lower light bar to mount this though....
