Show me your grille guard.

Pardon if this was already posted but I'm fairly new to the forum and haven't seen such thread yet. I'm looking for a grille guard but with so many options it's difficult to make a decision. I'm particularly interested in the Mopar Grille Guard but since my Commander is white I'm not sure how it would look with a black or dark grey grille guard, if you've seen the grille guard you'll know what I'm talking about.

What do you guys own?

Well, this is what I had on my 06 for a little while....

Sorry there isn't a head-on shot... I'm sure someone here will.

That's the other one that I was actually considering. Did you like it? You said you only had it on for a little while?

I did like it... very easy install, and looked good. I took it off my 06' before I traded it in for the 08'. It didn't really fit the scheme I had going for the new one. I may still paint it the PX8 black, and put it on... who knows. The only complaint I have is that the black they paint it... how do you say it... it "fades" kinda? I don't know if that's exactly what I want to say. It just loses its luster. I'm sure the guys here could tell you what I mean, or maybe you know... It's that type of paint that does that... still very black, just not that high gloss finish like the Jeep itself. Other than that, it's an amazing piece.

Here is my 4XGuard Matrix less the "hoop" (as it is on back order) and down below that is my 4XGuard Front Guard 4. I am sure El Cid will post soon.

These pieces are serious... the Matrix could be used as a true push bar and with added D rings, can be used for extraction. It bolts up to the tow hook locations with extra bracing. If you have OEM tow hooks, supposedly they can be used with the Matrix.

Visit http://www.4xguard.com and check their products out!

As Chuck notes, I'm running the 4xGuard Matrix with hoop and the optional receiver mount. I've also got 4xG's Front Guard:

Hey Luv, where in chicago you located, I am on the south side, always good to see more local guys on here, as i see a lot of commanders in the Chicago area.

SelfTranscendentD quick question, does that bull bar mount where the tow hooks go? I really dont want to take those off if i dont have to.

Chuck and Mike, now that's a nice looking guard, definitely an alternative to the Mopar grille guard. I think so far that's a winner. Considering my Commander is white, something like that would probably be a better fit. Thanks for sharing.

8ball- I'm on the south side of Chicago too, close to Midway. Hey man we should get some more people from the area to take a trip to the Badlands Offroad park in Indiana.
