Great quality, finish is holding up excellent despite abuse. Another bit of information to note: if you have the chrome mesh grill (Denali style) it will require modification and not install per the instructions.


Love the new grille guard. Very heavy duty construction and looks great! My wife has had one on her truck for several years and loves it too. Weather's very well.


Receive it yesterday and installed it. If it wasn't for the garbage stainless steel hardware it would have been a faster simply install. I had the 2 bolts, the only 2 I tried to close up the gap lightly with a short wrench pull threads and get stuck before it was even tight. I couldn't back it out or get it tight So I had to unbolt the brackets and pull it all off and cut the bolts with a sawzall. Then I replaced all the hardware with 1/2 inch grade 8 flanged bolts and nuts. Save yourself the trouble and junk the hardware that comes with it and get 8 hardened bolts uptown.


This the review I posted on TacomaWorld about the grill: “I had purchased a HD Steelcraft grille guard, via Carid, for my 2017 Tacoma, but it was not received in acceptable condition (from manufacturing and shipping). After being refunded I purchased a HDX Westin, grille guard, via etrailer. First, I have to say the Westin was much more difficult in install; luckily I had a buddy with more experience on such projects, more patients and the right tools. The instructions covered several years of Tacomas and were poorly written and illustrated. With that said the packaging from Westin was far superior than that of Steelcraft’s. Westin had every part covered by cardboard cut to fit. Under the cardboard the grille guard had been wrapped in foam. The likelihood of the grille being damaged was very unlikely. On the other hand the Steelcraft only had foam and bubble wrap around it with a thin leather like covering around it all on the outside. Before even unpacking the Steelcraft it could be seen were the corners of the up rights had cut through the wrapping. As mentioned the quality of the grille was poor. There were places where it had not been powder coated, the powder coating on the punch out was sloppy and one of the up rights appeared to have been damaged before it had even been wrapped. The Westin was made of thicker and wider steel. Both grilles were one piece units. The Steelcraft bolted to the frame using vertical bolts, which seemed to me could be sheared off on impact, while the Westin grille bolted on horizontally. Steelcraft looked good the way the upper part of the guard turned inward to follow the upper part of the grille, and the Westin upper part turn outward following the angle of the lower part of the grille. The Westin offered more protection. If you were to hit something the wider spread of the Westin uprights seem like they would protect more. The uprights on the Steelcraft were just powder coated medal, but the uprights on the Westin had a nice rubber strip over them, well suited for pushing another vehicle. The Westin cost more, but worth it. Just make sure you’re very patient and having a pass though socket is a great help since there is very limited room to work under the bumper on the upper bolts. And Steelcraft’s warranty is two years while Westin’s is three years.”


Amazing product. Westin always struggles with clear and easy to follow instructions. etrailer online install video is always the reliable go to.


We chose this particular guard because we like the design over other brands for the Tahoe application. This is a 2020 Tahoe Premier RST. Grill guards are popular here in rural Texas even on cars and SUVS because they are known to at least sometimes help minimize vehicle damage during highway impacts. Turkey buzzards, hawks, feral pigs and deer are a constant presence on our rural public roads. We like the way it fits and the tubing is even heavier than the Ranch Hand on our farm trucks. We are very happy with this product.


This is an excellent grill guard excellent people to deal with couldn't be happier thankyou etrailer


I like to think my Westin Grille Guard is the best compared to some of the others I have seen on the road. I have the polished stainless and I do not see one bit of rust or discoloration. I do wish though that the bolts that hold the grille onto the truck were polished stainless or came with caps to cover the zinc oxide bolts that are used for the installation.

It has been over a year now and my Westin Grille Guard still looks like the day it came out of the box. The truck stays outside 24/7/365 in upper NY state. I bought it to protect my front end against deer hits, but the deer seem to stand at the side of the road admiring how good my guard looks. Now I am thinking about ordering the Westin 6 HID light kit to improve night time driving. I certainly would recommend Westin to anyone looking for aftermarket products.

After ordering the grille guard I wondered how it would be delivered as I have a long driveway with no turn-around. I called etrailer and made them aware of my driveway situation. They gave me the number to the shipper and we were able to meet up less than two miles from my home. I was really impressed with the way my grille guard was packaged. The installation went smoothly for the most part. The illustration pictures included with the instructions were a bit confusing at first. After scrutinizing the diagrams I was able to finish the installation. Since the grille guard was to much to handle for one person, I used a block and tackle hung from my garage roof rafter and had my wife steady the grille guard as I installed the bolts. Torquing the nuts was a bit of a challenge due to the limited access space. Also, after the installation was completed, I had a hard time opening the hood due to the limited space to access the horizontal hood latch. The top of the grille guard sits a bit higher than the truck's grill and the hood release space. Finally, after succeeding in opening the hood, I drilled a hole in the horizontal latch, installed a zip tie in the hole, and now can pull the zip tie horizontally to release the latch. The grille guard appears to be sturdy. If it keeps my headlight and factory grill intact after a deer strike it is money well spent. Price a headlight assembly and grill for a 2019 Ford F250 and I'm confident that you'll agree with me. The only added cost for me was buying an 18mm socket. I've received many compliments already on the grille guard.


I love my grill guard. Now I am thinking I may want to attach some lights to it.


I bought this grill one year ago. I like this grill. I can recommend it.


Been a year and still looks new. Salt and everything


Built tough and looks great!


It has a few chips in the chrome when I received the grille guard. Not sure if it was for the warehouse or shipping. Also there is a little rust starting at one of the welds. Still very happy with the grill guard.


Great Grill Guard. It was very easy to mount and we added a heavy duty winch. It really changed the look of the truck. Holding up really well with no rock chips or fading still looks brand new!


This has been a great grille guard! Power coat looks new and this has been a "better than expected" item.


Good and strong grill guard.


Excellent product, timely received, easy to install. Glad I purchased it. Keep up the good work!


Iv had it on for some time it was easy to install, it is very solid Ive recommended it to others.
