Westins Sportsman 1-piece Grille Guard provides a customized look and front-end protection for trucks and SUV's. Designed specifically for each vehicle model with applications that feature a drill free installation. Heavy duty 1.5 inch steel tubing contours grille and headlight area .Westin has designed the mounting brackets to utilize existing holes on the vehicles frame for superior strength with minimal vibration. The Sportsman also features rubber extrusions on vertical uprights and removable light guards for easy headlamp access. Holes accommodate most auxiliary light styles (not included). The welded crossbar adds strength and stability and is available in black powder coat finish, or CPS (chrome-plated-stainless) finish, giving the customer more options for their needs.
The manufacture rated this a 2 out of 5 star difficulty installation. Upon review of the instructions (7 lines in total) and the frame, it was clear that this was harder than a 2 star rating. I had 4 Wheel Parts look at the mounting issue with me and we both agreed this is a professional installation since you must remove the bumper and insert bolts inside the frame. 4 Wheel is installing it. Waiting to see the results.

Very nice product
Great one piece design makes for an easy install. Did have to do some minor trimming on factory grill cover, but nothing major.

Saved the front end of my truck 3 times a deer at 35mph a civic at 55mph and finally a tree at 30mph. the tree dented it up a little but it still looks and works great. for[$] it has saved me at least 3,000.

Great Grille Guard. Make sure you read the instructions, easy to miss a few steps or put parts on backwards. But if you follow the directions step by step it only took me about 1.5 hours to complete it with little help.

very sturdy and reasonably priced
The setup came with several different brackets, so make sure you have installed the correct ones before trying to put the entire thing on. The directions were not clear and seemed like they were first written in chinese and then translated to english.
Overall the product has been great so far. I also liked that I didnt have to totally remove my tow hooks.
Hello, My question is: do i need to sacrafice my recovery hooks on my 2002 GMC Sierra 1500 for this grill guard? or can i keep them, while having this grill guard installed onto my truck.

can i mount a winch to it?
topher from on
The Westin Sportsman; 1-Piece Grille Guard does not have a way to accept a winch. You will have to look into the Sportsman Winch Mount Grille Guard model.
Thanks for asking.
