Both are good looking on the trail boss. But I need a grill guard that can stand up to a deer hit. We have a renegade grille guard on our 2014 2500HD that has survived smokin a good sized Muley. And a truck defender aluminum bumper replacement on our 2007 3500HD. These are like the ones on 18 wheelers. unfortunately we didn’t get it on until after a repair bill of $6000+ for another deer strike. Still can’t find one that compliments the front end of ou new Trail Boss.
6 grand repair bill, ouch. Neither of those guards on your older trucks seem to compliment the trucks. 6 grand vs looks...hmm I do understand the looks issue but 6 g's says looks should not be a priority. Pick one you can live with. That would be how I would proceed.
