The grill guard was very easy to to install, the instructions were easy to read and the guard sure does not feel to weigh 160 lbs. all the hardware needed for the installation was missing, so i just spent another hour and a couple bucks to find the bolts i needed at the local hardware store, and the carrier took three weeks to deliver to my house. overall. good product, looks great, but the crucial parts missing, and the extended delivery date was a downfall.
Install Time: 30-60 minutes

Love this guard, have the urge to run into someone now just to test it out! The black paint on this guard is sweet, its pretty hard to chip, going to put it on I spun and hit the headlight area against a toolbox and you'd never know I did. Putting it on was interesting, because the "directions" it comes with are absolutely terrible, if you can even classify a picture with a couple lines drawn on it directions. They fail to tell you that you need to use four of the bolts ALREADY holding the bumper on. It did not require too much work to install it though, took me and my dad roughly an hour and fifteen to complete, and half the time was trying to figure out how to mount the brackets, and when you combine two polish guys and bad directions it gets interesting. All in all, I LOVE this guard, it looks amazing on my truck. And for those of you who didn't think of it, use some of the touch-up paint they give you to paint the heads of the bolts and the nuts so they wont rust, that way in a few years if you need to take it off it'll be much easier. Also, if you are curious, this doesn't mount TO the bumper, it mounts to the bumper mount bracket which holds the bumper on, which is much better than just to the bumper. This is one thing I wanted to know before purchasing and couldn't really find out.
