Just got a custom upgrade to my grille guard. Since I lack welding skills, my metal fab. is limited to what I can do with an angle grinder, drill, sawzall, hammers, vise with bolts to hold it together. As you can see from the before photo, that worked fine for my version 1.0 - no grille punctures since it was installed.

Last year I got an EA 55 Wicked Grapple and decided to upgrade the grille guard so that I don't rip off the 3rd function hoses with the factory guard "horns" or my fabbed guard & bolts. Dusty (https://www.facebook.com/dustin.ginter.3?mibextid=ZbWKwL) did a great job fabricating the upgraded grille guard. With the angle iron across the top, there's more protection against unexpected limb falling.

version 2.0 looks good! I need to straighten out my grill guard and add some screening to it.
