Our Front Brush Guard is a lightweight, two-piece, steel plate to smooth the transition from the bumper to the skidplate. It provides a bit of extra protection by partially covering the pinch weld that spans the front underside of the van, preventing hang-ups to minimize potential damage.
Installation requires a GoWesty Front Skid Plate and a GoWesty Plate Steel Front Bumper. This guard is only compatible with our more recent, higher clearance bumpers, which have a chin cutout. The guard is designed to closely match the profile of that bumper to maintain its excellent approach angle. The latest GoWesty Front Skid Plates are designed to accommodate this brush guard, while the old style skidplates require some drilling.
*Installation requires drilling. See the instructions tab. Mounting hardware is included.
Note: Though this guard is built from sturdy, powdercoated 11ga steel, it is not intended to function as a rock slider. We recommend that you excercise as much common sense as possible when flogging your van.
