Brush guard/farm truck modifications Here's another option to consider. Here on the farm, we have a lot of brambles and brush. This little truck will spend a lot of time in the woods and I wanted to protect the front end. I found a brush guard for a full sized pickup on Craigslist. Only cost 70 bucks. I simply chopped 5" out of the center, welded it back together, cut the wrap around light protectors off, shortened and flipped them to protect the protruding signal lights on the scrum/carry. I added heavy one inch square mesh that I had laying around. (originally protectors for industrial fluorescent lights). Mounting was accomplished by removing the round tube attached to the frame/front end, strengthening it extensively with gussets and cross bars, and also adding a bit of skid plate to it. I decided not to put a receiver hitch or winch mount on the front, but may add those later on. Next will be a roof rack and runners from the brush guard up to the roof rack. (gotta protect that windshield). I'll also build a rear bumper with receiver soon.
