I loved the guard I had on my last truck. It was the Go Industries " The Rancher ". Very well built guard and made in the USA. I got it from AutoAnything for around $550 and it was worth every penny. It didn't vibrate or rattle. They only make them in black and like a gunmetal grey right now, so if you're wanting chrome I don't think it's available, but double check if you're interested.

I got a ranchhand grille guard and there's plenty of room for a bug shield. Only problem I've had was that it rusted under the powdercoat so I sandblasted it and repainted. We bought my dad's at the same time and his hasn't rusted a bit yet. Haven't hit anything with mine yet but it's solid.
aint the best pic but I think it posted

If you don't mind me asking about how much did your ranchhand grille guard cost.

I never noticed any shadows from the guard. And no, I couldn't put a bug shield on with the guard on because it was so close. Well, I actually put one on it and then realized that I couldn't open the hood without a screwdriver because my hand wouldn't fit. :)

I have a Warn Trans4mer. You can get a winch carrier for it as well. They are pricey, but very sturdy. You can see the pic's of mine on my profile. (Mine is a 2005 though)
