Another thing to remember- when you bolt it up, make sure that the thing is bolted to frame in such a fashion as to limit "backwards tilt" in case of catastrophe. A friend smacked a deer in Dec at highway speed with his '96 F350. Had an Ali-Arc or Herd or some kind of dinosaur smasher. Guard did the trick on the deer, and on the front end as it must've sheared mount bolts and pivoted back into the hood and all. Helluva mess...
