grill guard question

Does this part come with wire mesh to protect the radiator? Has anybody used this? Thanks, Tom

You can DIY, or you can order one. The one-piece grille mesh is sturdier, IMO, but there's several ways of doing it.

Here is what i did. It's a strong , sturdy, and solid peice of steel mesh. It's molded to fit, and easy to install. And looks great too.

I 2nd KYJeep Man1. Best mesh for the price. Solid, simple install. No worries of tabs falling off or flexing. $50 on Amazon

Lots of ppl use gutter guards from Lowes. I got a piece of aluminum cut at a machine shop. It was some scrap they had lying around for cheap, cut to my measurements. Zip tie that I. As in the write-up.

Not sure if you can zoom in on the grill but here's my attempt.
