I just installed a Go Rhino Grille/Brush Gaurd on the front of the Express, what do y'all think? I still have to put the front air dam on it (I just got one from an 07 1/2 ton with a Chrome bumper - the full air dam instead of that little crappy piece of plastic that was on it) I like the brush guard I think it makes my van look mean :) I opted for some small yellow fog lights to match the rear fog lights.



I also pulled off the boring old emblems and replaced them with 3500 HD pieces from an 08 pickup. The "Chevrolet" on the back is off of a Venture I still can't find an all chrome "Chevrolet" but this one was as close as I could find and will work for now.





What do you guys think?

Dam that should cut down on the damage when you hit that next deer.
I think I have hit more deer the last few years with our trucks than I have hunting.

Looks great.

yeah I live on a backroad in the country and I cannot count how many dear that I have hit. also not 2 days after I installed the brush guard I (fir the first time in my life) hit some black ice and spun out into the woods into some really thick brush and the guard did its job- no damage and I hit pretty hard I know if it wasn't on there I would have had to replace my left headlight grille and prob the left fendy at the very least.

well I installed the airdam that GM says is for 1/2 ton vans with chrome bumpers only. To me it is the little details like this that make a vehicle what do you guys think?

I don't believe I have ever seen a van with a brushguard before, I really like it though. And yes you are right about the small details, and a lot of times GM will say something won't fit but in reality it will. I have ran across that with several items I have bought in the past, keep up the great work deer slayer! :fighting0037:

The grill guard looks tough on your van. If I owned my2005 E-350 powerstroke I'd put one on that, but it's my boss's and he's not coming off the cash!

This thread is exactly what I have been looking for, for a long time. I am wanting to put a grille guard on my 04 3500?

Where did you order it from? and is it made for the 3500, and how much modification was need for the install?

Thanks a bunch

-Eric
