  • Can a Front Mount Hitch and Grille Guard Be Installed at the Same Time on a 2013 Toyota Tundra
  • Grille guards and front mount hitches normally use the same or some of the same mounting locations and/or occupy some of the same space in front of the vehicle. It is highly unlikely you will be able to install both a grille guard and a front mount hitch. I have included a link to the front mount hitches and a link to the grille guards we have for your 2013 Toyota Tundra. Since these items are going to install on the frame rails of the truck, they would interfere with each other.

  • Installing Westin Ultimate Bull Bar on 2012 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The brackets for the Westin Ultimate Bull Bar actually pass under the bumper and attach to the frame members. I have provided a photo that will give you an idea of how the brackets attach to the vehicle. If your truck has the rubber splash guard attached to the underside of the bumper, it will need to be temporarily removed in order to install the bull bar.

  • What Size Light Bar is Compatible with the Aries Bull Bar # AAB35-9002 for a 2014 Nissan Xterra
