Post your F150 Brush Guards/Bumpers

I want to put a brush guard on my 2014 F150. I'd like to see some pics. I can't decide between the Ranchhand or Tough Country brands. They're both good brands. They both look good but theres something funky about both I can't quite put my finger on. I think its the part that extends around the headlights. (anal, I know) The Tough Country is rounded off instead of angled with the headlight and the Ranch Hand doesn't protect the headlight. It looks just like a big opening. Please post pics of what you have so I can see.

Online pic of Tough Country:

Opinions?

We've been looking for the same thing for our 2014 F150, and agree with you. Both those look too big and clunky, the proportions are off somehow and just don't work. I'll be following this thread to see what others have.

Im actually considering the full front replacement from tough country on my 2012. May be a bit of overkill for an f150 but I've already cratered the front end once via a deer (truck was 4 months old!) I just dont like the way the brushguard looks.

I've never found one I really like. I think the problem is that the F150 is a very stylish and aerodynamic design, and it is just really difficult to come up with a functional brush guard that preserves or enhances the overall look of the truck.

I've seen some replacement bumper brush guard combinations that look decent with a lift and big tires, but I don't care to lift my truck for practical reasons.

With so many F150's out there surely some members have brush guards on their trucks. We'll see.

Yeah but I doubt many people will have models other than those two you have pictured.

frontier full replacement, it looks sharp, so much better than just the bumper/grill guard.
