      Video Review & Installation

      Hey guys, I'm Eric with AmericanTrucks. Today, we're checking out and installing this Barricade Extreme HD Grille Guard in Black, fitting all 2017 and later Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks. Now, this setup is really ideal for the truck owner out there who wants to add some protection to their grille, radiator, and headlights, while adding just a moderate amount of aggressive styling.Now, maybe you work at a worksite or are operating on off-road situations where you're liable to get impact damage from rocks, tree branches, or wildlife, or whatever the situation may be and you need some front end protection for your truck, this is ideal for all those situations without going with a full-blown aftermarket bumper setup that cannot only add a lot of money to your budget, but also a lot of weight to the front end of your truck as well.Now, this unit is really made from solid construction, the steel plate mounts to two different sections of your frame rails, both down below and directly behind the bumper bolts right here. So it is very solidly attached to the frame of your truck. And the real backbone of this grille guard are these two upright singular pieces that are almost a quarter of an inch thick. And the tubular steel, both in the center section and out here to the corners is welded directly to that, makes for a unit with a lot of structural integrity.Now, for demonstration purposes today, we're using our fleet F-250 that is an XLT model. Now, if you have a higher trim level with certain features like front-end collision warning, or active cruise control, or the front-end camera, this grille guard may interfere with the operation of some of those items. However, the front-end camera, you can remove the center section of the push plate right here by using just a couple of Allen bolts behind before you install the grille guard on there. And that will remove this section of plate right here, allowing your forward-facing camera to work normally.Finished in a durable black powder coat that's gonna protect this material against weathering and corrosion for many years to come, currently, this unit is priced under $800, which is a pretty good value compared to a lot of other grille guards out there that a lot of which you're not gonna see the same level of structural integrity and strength and durability behind the design.All right, guys, now as far as the installation goes, I'm giving it a very basic one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Give yourself about an hour to get this job done from start to finish. The two tricky parts to this installation that if you pay attention to how we show you how to do it here, you'll have no problem getting this installed. The first trick is that when you're mounting the brackets on, tighten them up a little bit, but leave a little bit of play in the brackets so they can move and you can adjust as you go. And then the second trick is getting a helper.You're gonna want a little bit of help when you lift the grille guard up into place itself. When you raise the grille guard into place, you can't rest it on anything. So you're basically holding it and lining up the holes with the brackets that you amount on your truck so you can get bolts started in there. Once you get the bolts started, you can get the nuts on there finger-tight, and then start tightening the brackets to the frame and then start tightening the bolts on the grille guard itself. And we'll show you exactly how to do that here in just a minute.Let's go ahead and take a look at the tools you're gonna need and move forward with the installation. All right, guys, tools you're gonna need for this install include an electric impact wrench, 8 and 18-millimeter sockets, an extension, and an 18-millimeter wrench.All right, guys, now right before we get into the installation here, just a couple of things I wanna reiterate, make sure you have the proper equipment to adequately support this bumper as we start undoing the bolts that support it. These bolts here and here on either side of both tow hooks are actually bolts. They might look like nuts, but they're actually bolts. So once those are removed, there is nothing supporting this bumper to the frame. It's not resting on top of like a lip, or a shelf, or anything like that.So you wanna make sure that you have also the help of at least one other person who can maybe hold this bumper as you're undoing these bolts. They will be partially supported by the tow hooks here because the tow hooks are attached directly to your frame rails, but I wouldn't rely on that solely to hold the bumper up because it might also wanna come forward as well. So make sure you have some help and maybe a floor jack, or some jack stands, or some sturdy wood boxes or something like that that you can stack up underneath this to support this just as a safety note. So let's go ahead, we're gonna start with the air dam.All right, guys, first off, we're gonna start here on the passenger side. You have this bolt up top here and all the other ones are on the underside until we get to the other end where there's another one on top, just like this one. And they should all be 8-millimeter.All right, guys, now we're switching to the underside here. You might wanna use a swivel socket if you're using an electric tool like I am. It's a little tight on the edge here because of the curve of the air dam. Now, I'm gonna leave this one in a couple of threads just to support the air dam so it's not flopping down on me as we're undoing the rest of these.And again, I'm gonna leave that one a couple of threads on as well. All right, guys, I'm just gonna do these last bolts here that I have finger-tight.All right, guys, now the first brackets we're gonna deal with are the ones that are shaped like this. We're on the driver side here. So go ahead and grab the bracket that's stamped with the letter D on it, and also grab one of these spacers. We're gonna mount this up. And what we're gonna do is we're gonna remove these two bumper bolts right here, and you might have a nut plate in back there that's gonna fall down unless you're able to reach around there and kind of hold up in place or catch it. But you're gonna use an 18-millimeter socket to pull these bolts out.And we're gonna make those finger-tight for now. And we're gonna do that on the other side as well. If you just leave these in a couple of threads while you undo the other one, it'll prevent the nut plate from spinning back there.All right, guys, now what we're looking at here is we're on the driver-side frame rail. On the outside of the rail, there are these two bolts that are sticking out from inside the frame rail. We have nuts on there. What we're gonna do is we're gonna take off this rearmost nut, and then we're going to put this plastic retaining clip over the bolt because there's basically a bolt plate that's holding those two bolts up.So once we get the retaining clip on there, then we can take off the other nut and should hopefully hold our bolt plate up, and then we are going to mount our bracket over top of that and then put the nuts back on there. So this also is an 18-millimeter socket for this. And the retaining clip should just thread right on there and get it up nice and tight up against the frame. And that should hold the nut plate or the bolt plate up in place for us. Let's go ahead and take out the other nut.Now go ahead and grab this bracket and make sure you have the one that's stamped with the letter D on it because we're on the driver side. And as you can see, there's quite a bit of adjustability here with this bracket. So we're gonna leave it a little bit loose right now and we're gonna repeat this over on the passenger side. All right, guys, so basically, with a help from a friend here, we're gonna lift this up into place. Now, the brackets we just mounted on the truck go on the inside of the frame of our brush guard here that we're mounting up. So once you get it lined up, we're gonna start a couple of bolts on the tops here.All right, guys, now we have these bolts started. Go ahead and grab a flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut, and we'll get these threaded on by hand right now. We can do the same thing on the other side. And then while I'm down here, I'm gonna start some bolts and get the nuts going on them down here below. We'll do that on the other side as well.All right, guys, now over here on the driver side, we already had one nut started just for safety's sake since we had our brush guard up here hanging. So we're gonna finish this side.Now, as you can see, I'm adjusting this. This is exactly why we had everything kind of left loose for the install, so you can adjust as we go along. All right, guys, then we're back underneath the driver-side frame rail, we're gonna tighten these nuts up. All right, guys, now we're gonna tighten up our bumper bolts, again, with an 18-millimeter socket and I have an extension on here. Gonna get the passenger side as well.All right, guys, now to tighten up all the bolts here for our brackets, you're gonna need an 18-millimeter tool on both sides. So I have a wrench and a socket. Then go ahead and do the same four bolts on the other side.So that wraps up this review and install of this Barricade Extreme HD Grille Guard in Black, fitting all 2017 and later Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks.
