What's going on, guys? I'm Alex from American Muscle. This is my quick view and install of the Barricade Brush Guard in Polished Stainless fitting the 2015 and 2016 F-150. So in this video, I'm going to talk about the construction and materials used with this brush guard, as well as a little bit later on the installation. But right off the bat, despite this size, I'm going to be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you should have this on your truck in about an hour, tops. So if you're the owner of a brand new F-150, and you're looking to maximize the protection over that of a bull bar, I would definitely suggest taking a look at this brush guard. As you're going to be offering the maximum amount of protection for your headlights and your grille from anything you might come across, be it on your daily commute, job site, or even doing some heavy-duty off-roading. So, taking a look just at the materials alone we're gonna see that this is made up of a heavy-duty stainless steel tubing which is then polished to a mirror finish. Now, in my opinion, this meshes very well with the factory trim on the F-150. But if chrome isn't your thing, you can definitely take a look at some other options on the website where we're going to have this listed in black. So the great thing about this finish on this brush guard is that it's going to hold up over time to any type of exposure to the elements. But I would add that with any type of chrome parts that you're gonna have on your vehicle it's always a good idea to wax it every now and then, just to ensure it's gonna have a great shine as well as be protected. All right guys, so taking a look at the pricing here we're going to see that this is going to fall in line right around the $500 price range, which is definitely gonna be in the middle of the road in comparison to some of the other big-name brands out there. Now they could easily tip the scales at around $1200 based on their style, finish, as well as how they're optioned. Now, for the money here, you're definitely getting away with a huge bang for the buck as you're going to be giving your truck the maximum amount of protection, protecting your headlights, your grille, and your front end either on your daily commute, running off-road, or your job site. Now, again, just to hit this home one last time, for the money here you're definitely getting away with a huge piece of equipment that's going to protect your investment from anything that you might be coming across on your daily commute. Doing some light to heavy-duty off-roading, as well as making this look that much more aggressive and different than any other F-150 you're going to be seeing on your daily commute.So taking a look at the installation here guys, just like I had said in the beginning of the video, you're gonna be looking at a pretty easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and about one hour, tops, to get this on your truck. Now, while it's not completely necessary to have a second set of hands here to get this installed, I would definitely suggest doing it as this is gonna be a little bit on the heavier side and it's always a good idea to just have them there.All right guys, so one thing I do want to add, during the installation is that while Barricade suggests that you don't need to pull the grille to install this. I would definitely suggest taking the extra 10 to 15 minutes to do it, as getting access to the top bumper bolts for the brackets can be a little bit on the challenging side as there's only about this much space to get a hand down there. Again, take the extra 10 to 15 minutes, pop out your factory grille, and it's going to make your life that much easier when getting this on your truck.All right guys, so just to wrap things up here, I really like this option from Barricade, not only because I have a couple of their parts on my own truck, but for the fact that you're going to be getting away with a piece that not only looks tough but actually is tough. You're going to be protecting the front of your brand new truck from anything that you're going to come across on some light to heavy-duty off-roading, job site, farm, or even on your daily commute. So that's my review and install of the Barricade Brush Guard available in polished stainless fitting your 2015 and 2016 F-150 right here at americanmuscle.com.

It every penny worth what you pay for ! Does not vibrate at all while driving, this will definitely protect your vehicle in a collision .Helpful (1)

I really like this brush guard. Everyone else has the black ones but the chrome looked a lot better on my red 2017 F-150. I haven't hit a deer yet so I don't know how strong it is. Hopefully I'll never find out. I put this on with my son. It took us about 2 hours. I didn't want to take off the bumper so I took off the front grill instead. Lots of connectors and bolts to remove but not really complicated. The hardest part was removing the tow hooks. Large bolts in a small space.Helpful (1)

Completes the look of the Truck
This is definitely what I needed to complete the exterior look of the truck after a leveling kit and bigger tires. Took about 2 hours to install without power tools. Very sturdy for the price point.Helpful (1)

Overall nice Brush Guard
Only 2 issues I have with it. I did not expect to have to take off my bumper to install it. It also came very nicely wrapped up but still scratched pretty bad. A little touch up paint and an afternoon of installation and it looks great!Helpful (1)

The guard looks great, only reason I didn’t give 5 star is I haven’t hit anything yet so I don’t know how it’ll hold up.Helpful (2)

Yes, this will interfere with front braking alert systems.
