Chevrolet Silverado Gets New Rugged Grille Guard

Trucks / Comments

It offers better front production while giving the full-size truck a more rugged appearance.

If you want to give your Chevrolet Silverado or GMC Sierra better front protection, Westin is offering a new grille guard that also gives the full-size trucks a more rugged look. Called the Sportsman X, the grille guard's aggressive styling perfectly complements the current Silverado and Sierra's larger grilles.

Westin's Sportsman X grille guard is constructed from heavy-duty 1 5/8-inch outer steel tubing and heavy-duty 2 1/4-inch wide upright steel tubing. The headlight area also comes with 3/4-inch crossbars providing extra strength to the grille guard wings. It's compatible with the company's removable center mesh panel.

For an even more rugged look, the grille guard can accommodate a 26-inch dual row LED light bar. A smaller removable mesh panel designed for the factory sensor location is also included as standard with the grille guard. For specific Chevrolet, Ram, and GMC applications, the company sells a separate Sportsman X Sensor Kit. An exterior step plate located on the lower grille provides easy access to the engine compartment.

To prevent corrosion, Westin's grille guard is covered in an "e-coated base." All necessary hardware and mounting brackets are included for easy installation and the Sportsman X grille guard comes with a three-year warranty.
