My wife truck has one of those chrome bumper grille guards on it. It is attached with 5/16 bolts, 8 total. There are 4 on the bottom to the frame, 2 in the radiator support and 2 about half way up the bumper. There are 2 little straps that run between the radiator support and the bumper. They are about 1/2 in wide and maybe am 8th thick. There is just a simple 90* bend at the radiator end. There is no reinforcement at the bend and they keep cracking. I need something a bit more stout to put in there. Im pretty much stuck with the h0les in the support unless I spend days disassembling the front end to make room to drill.

Ill be her hero if I can make the truck quit squeaking every time she hits a bump.
