The off road lights on the grille guard are HID that I got from AutoZone for about $120 each.


Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

Does the brush guard affect the lighting in any way of the headlights? Is there still room to work on the front with the brush guard?

Any night shots with ALL lights on?

Can you still have front tow hooks with the brush guard?

Sorry for all the questions

Hereís a photo showing the grille guard and tow hooks. They use some common bolt holes which make it even stronger.


I donít notice any problem with the grille guard blocking the lights, although I do have new headlights with brighter blubs in them and I also leave my fog lights on to help.


I did some custom work to the grille guard making it stronger and also where it sits a little further out from the grille. I can remove my grille without having to remove the grille guard. Before I did this, it was almost touching the hood and grille.
Now it can take far more of an impact without damaging my jeep.


Some people along the 4x4 trail where guessing that I had $30,00 into my jeep, well not yet, but maybe by the end of the year after installing new heavy duty axles with Ox lockers and a built in front winch along with a few other things.
Problem is if I sold it I would have to start all over and build the same thing again.

Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

Don't spend 4-500 on a brush guard that is a fancy light holder when you can get a real bumper for that or a little more. Kevin makes a light bar too.

For those that asked, here are some pics (sorry for the crappy quality) of the Durango air hat mod:

Kind of butchered the hood huh? What did you use to cut it? A chap stick cap will plug that breather port on the air hat nice and snug.

Yeah, I need to find a better cap for the port. For now, the tape seems to be working though. And yeah, I used aviation snips and pipe pliers (for bending things when done) for the hood modding... It got the job done, and my engine bay isn't exactly shiny anyway. The whole mod also cost me a whopping $19 ($5 for the air hat, $14 for the semi-ridgid dryer ducting, carriage bolt and hose clamps). I used the stock rubber connector thingies that sit inside the ends of the factory plastic intake tube to attach the ducting, as it didn't quite fit over the airbox and air hat.

^^^^ x4... I had a brush guard once on another vehicle. The way they all mount is extremely weak and allows them to rotate towards the hood under stress. Hitting the smallest of saplings would be better without it, as when you hit just about anything the brush guard will damage the hood, fenders, lights, etc... no telling how far it will go. If you hit something without it, at least the damage stays contained to the area that came in contact with the obstacle.

Here's mine. I used a dremmel to cut the hole. I put the cap on later. I used tubing I got from pep boys. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/d...5-9-a-1315001/
