Hey guys. Adam here, with americanmuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you a detailed overview and installation of the Steel Craft HD Grille Guard, which will fit the front end of all 2015 and new F-150s. In this video, I'll be talking about the materials and construction that went into the front HD Grille Guard from Steel Craft, as well as what makes it so protective and stylish at the same time. I'll top the video off with the install, which I'll let you know up front we'll get a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Because it won't require any drilling or permanent modifications. The Steel Craft HD Grille Guard will be good for any 2015 or newer F-150 owner who's looking to pick up some serious protection for their front end, while also saving their wallet from taking a beating. So this particular product from Steel Craft falls into their HD or Heavy Duty series of products, that offers some of the most protection in the after-market world. This one in particular, falls toward the top of the leaderboard, but just shy of a full bumper replacement. Now with that said, the one you see on the table with me covers everything above your front bumper. Including the upper grille, and the side headlights here with maximum protection. Now if you're looking for a little bit more, especially from the extreme off-roaders, you might wanna check out the Steel Craft Front Bumper Replacement. Which includes everything you see here, as well as a bottom bumper. Now as far as materials and construction is concerned, obviously that's a very important aspect when we're talking about front-end protection. Now protecting that front end, you can expect a fully welded all maximum strength steel going up through your upper grille. The mesh background here, that is actually very exclusive to Steel Craft. And of course, very thick tubing with four bars covering your upper headlights. So as far as the pricing goes, if you're the guy with the F-150 and you're looking for extreme off-road protection, or if you're just looking to mow down some zombies if the apocalypse ever comes about. Then of course you might be looking at the Steel Craft option here. This one's going to be running you about $550. but I'm gonna be completely honest with you. For just about $30 more you can get everything you see here, including a front lower bumper made of the same materials from Steel Craft. Now that Front Bumper Replacement from Steel Craft is about $580, which in my opinion is very worth while. Shifting gears over to the install portion of the video. Like I said in the very beginning, this one is gonna get a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. But I will say upfront, this thing is extremely heavy. So it's definitely gonna be something you want a helping hand to get installed. As far as tools, all you'll need is a simple ratchet and socket set, with the helping hand of a friend of course. And all of the hardware will be included for you in the kit. Now since this is not the Full Bumper Replacement from Steel Craft, you won't have to remove anything from your factory body. And with that said, all you have to do is bolt up the brackets to your front end. And then of course, use the hardware and a helping hand to get this one setup on your brackets. Once that's bolted down to spec of course, you'll be good to go. Overall, about an hour's worth of time in the driveway at home. And a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Just to wrap up this overview and install, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer F-150 and you're looking to pick up some serious protection for your front end, but you're not too interested in picking up a bumper replacement. You may wanna check out the Steel Craft HD Grille Guard, which is available right here at americanmuscle.com.

Can I retain my 2016 Ford F150 factory tow hooks once installation of the Steel Craft HD Grill Guard is complete?

Will this fit the 2018 models without the forward facing cameras?
The Steel Craft HD Grille Guard has not yet been test fit on the 2018 F150.
Guy in video states for $30 more the full replacement bumper plus grille guard can be purchased. Only option I see is over $900. What is the part number of the one he is referring to??
At the time the video was shot, that was the case. That price has since been corrected and the $900+ more version is indeed the one they are referring to in the video.
I see that in the description that this says it fits 15-17 ALL but It only give you the option to select 2015 or 2016. Does this fit the 2017 F150? Thank you
Hello! Unfortunately it looks like this product does not fit 2017 models only 2015 and 2016.
How much does this Grille Guard weigh? I do suppose it will bring my front end down a bit, is there an estimate as to how much it'll come down? I plan to install a leveling kit either way.
This grille guard will weigh 95 pounds. As far as it bringing down your front end, unfortunately we do not have the estimate as to how much it will drop it.
