Before going on your next adventure this spring, consider getting a front grille guard. After all, you never know what could happen out there, especially when you’re trying to not get lost in the woods. But whether you’re setting out on a road trip to escape the lingering cold or just want to go mud running, here are a few reasons you should get a front grille guard.
They Complement Other Upgrades
When you have a front grille guard installed, it won’t interfere with the function of the other features you have on your truck. In fact, it can even complement other add-ons you have installed, such as a hook for towing. If you are worried about keeping your engine and radiator safe, then that’s not a problem either.
Protection During an Accident
No matter where you’re going or where you’ve been, you want to make sure both your truck and your passengers can survive an accident. Accidents are frightening enough on their own, but without a front grille guard, they could be much worse. Keep in mind that any protection will only make a difference at low speeds and low impact situations. You might come away with some scratches and gouges on the paint job, but that can easily be remedied. In high-speed impacts, however, the grille will not help. So think twice before revving the engine to attempt to jump over that boulder you encounter down a forest path.
Along with possible collisions with inanimate objects, you’ll also want to watch out for crashes with woodland animals – and not just deer, either. Depending on where you go, you might also run into moose. To see these creatures better, you might need to increase the amount of lighting you have mounted on your truck.
You’re probably still going to be out after dark. And when you are, you’ll need to have good lighting. Luckily, when you have a front grille guard in place, you can add more lights to guide your way – whether you need to see through fog, rain, or trees.
Even though a front grille guard provides plenty of benefits for the physical integrity of your truck, don’t forget about how you can also use one to make your truck look tougher. You just need to find the right finish for it.
