Xj Help finding this Grille Guard

I hope this went into the right forum. It didn't really seem like a tech. questions, so..

I am trying to find a certain kind of grille guard for my '97 Cherokee Sport.

Pic taken from Google. I saved it then couldn't find the link again, so sorry if I stole this from someone.

or this one..

Pic borrowed from 93ZJbeast; I hope he/she won't mind me using it.

I am really hoping to find that first one, as it has those thin bars that protect the headlights, but I really like either one.

I did find some similar looking ones, but with more bars on them. Anything more than the above is a little too much for my taste, for right now anyway.

Sorry if this is a weird or stupid question/post. But, if I am going to spend a few hundred bucks on a grille guard, I at least want to like the looks of it..right?

Thanks guys.

i like the functionality of the ones in the pics.
just an idea, but you might try googling 'push bumper' or 'pushbar'.

OK....Actually, I took mine off and it is sitting in the garage collecting dust.



The one in the top photo was on my Jeep when I bought it. I do not see a name brand anywhere on it, but I believe it was called a "safari" grille.

Good luck,

Hey, thanks to everybody for their reply..even bebout, who insulted my taste in grille guards, lol.

I like the one in that link, but I was hoping to spend < $300 if possible.

John, I also like the one you have there, but I don't think it would look right with my Cherokee. I haven't gotten around to putting a lift kit on, and I just think a guard that big would look funny. I'll look further into the 'safari' thing though, thanks a lot

EDIT: Now that I am looking back, the one in that link is also a Safari style guard.

We had one like that on one of our work XJs. It interfered with the headlight beams at night and was a major pain.
