Got a 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged 8 Cyl 5.0L to pull our toy hauler. I want to put a Front Brush Guard Bumper Grille Guard of some sort on the front. I do not believe they make them. Does anyone know of a fabricator whom can make one? I am in Calif. Thanks

PS some places say they have it on google searches but when you get into a specific grille guard it says no not available - hence I think I need a custom person to make it.

Not knowing much about Range Rovers, do you have the payload for this, IMO, rarely needed accessory? “Pulling” is seldom an issue. Carrying ability is.

I just did a Google search and found several sources for front bumper guards for Range Rovers. I don't know your model or year to get specific information.

Call a local weld shop and have them build you one.... All it takes is money.

You can ditch the front bumper and have one of these built.

I have pieces from WAAG, in Van Nuys, CA. 818-989-5008
You might check with them and see if they still make them.

How large do you want? All the way across the front or just the center? Integral with the bumper or an add on? If just an add on most are quite flimsy. I had an add on it looked great and was stainless steel so no rusting. However I couldn't stand the way it vibrated plus it would've crumpled if I'd hit a deer. I built this one after taking the add on off. It's 2x2x1/8 sq tubing. The way I built it is the tubing bolts on in place of the factory tow hooks, comes out bent at a 90 degree angle upright goes up and across where the 2 sides meet. Where it's bent at the bottom it's braced top and inside with 2x2 tubing gussets. The hitch receiver is also well gussetted. I then had it powder coated. I also have a pair of high watt lights that mount on the crossbar. I forgot to add, the triangle plate you see on the bottom was put in after I added the second bottom bar and receiver as I also have a 12K winch set-up that can be slid into the receiver. I'm confident it'll hold as I got to far off on the shoulder with a 7K? trailer in tow and both truck and trailer had axles sitting on the ground and a snatch strap around the guard was used to pull it out. That happened before adding the receiver and plate
