bolt on grille guard pics

Does anyone have something like this? I was looking at this one in particular
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001FA...110_SY165_QL70

Does it use the existing holes in the bumper? Is it rust prone?

Any pics you have would be awesome!

I had 1 just like that on mine, but took it off and sold it. Didn't like it at all. For 1 thing it is a royal PITA to put on, cause you have to line up the hole in the push bar as well as the hole in the bumper to get the bolt started. The first 1 or 2 is fine but when you get to 3 and 4, that's where the fun begins.

The other thing I hated about it was it is just high enough to be in the path of the headlights, so it creates a shadow in the bottom part of the headlight beam. Just something to get used to, but I like to see everything, not shadows.

Then I installed a 12K winch on the front and it was in the way for the fairlead, so it had to go.

Thanks for your input. I planned on upgrading the headlights and installing long range lights on the top of it. Ill try it out. Its dirt cheap and I can always return it!

Seemed to come off easy. I wasn't the one who put it on, i bought the jeep with it. The guy welded the light mounts on and hit the welds with some chrome spray paint which looked good till winter struck.
