    Default Bob's Chevy Equinox Brush Guard project.

    Thought a few of you might dig this project. My son wacked a deer on his last trip home. Did like $6500 damage to his 06 Equinox. We are of the impression, had he had more light, he could have seen them sooner. and sometimes in Montana, late at night, you might drive for 2-3 hours without even seeing another car. SOOOooooo, he sourced up some decent 7" HID's and we made a brush guard for the Equinox to hold the lights. It's at paint now, we should be getting it back tomorrow. Something you don't see is an Equinox with some pimped out light bar.

    Not designed as a bumper, just a way to hold the lights and a hoop over them so they don't get broken off accidentally in a parking lot. Mostly made out of 1.25 schedule 40.

    I'm just a weekend warrior, don't do it for a living.

    Here's the pics.

    Good job. Next time you want to wack a deer it would be a lot cheaper to hire a hit man from Chicago

    You can buy them. Anyplace that has weld on pipe fittings should have them.

    Looks great! You did a great job on the project.

    I have but one question. Those are rather large lights and placed in front of the grille. I'm wondering is that going to adversely affect the cooling during the hot summer months? The vehicle appears in the photo to have a rather small grille area.
