I'm about to get a Westin brushguard for my truck, and since my airdam has been hacked due to the body lift, I'm thinking either Tahoe Z71 airdam or PIAA airdam. Will the brushguard still mount up using these or will I need a guard for a tahoe?

you looking to get chrome or black? westin's powercoat sucks. they honor their 5 year warranty but taking your bar back every year gets old. i had 3 and they all rusted.

i don't think you will have as bad of a problem as i did with rust since you probably don't see much road salt in AR, but the powdercoat quality is still questionable. i'd get stainless or chrome plated stainless.

they will work either way.. the manik and westins mount through the towhook openings. i personally wouldnt waste my money on a manik. i do sell and install these at work, and have seen them in collisions. i would step up to a more heavy duty guard.

It's for pure looks and a place to mount my lights. If I get into a wreck I hope I hit whatever it is hard enough to total the bish... :anitoof:

ranchhand makes a guard with an open center section just like a manik, but more heavy duty. its a little cheaper as well.

scroll down to the bottom, and check out the sport model.
