Hi everyone I'm new to the forum and have a few questions. To start off I'm 16 and just bought a 95 flare side. I'm wondering if anyone has ever blown their main seal in their transmission? Also Im looking to see where I can find a chrome brush guard? Thanks

I don't think that would work because I live in MA, but thanks! I'm looking for the one that goes only over the grill. So would that be called a bull bar?

Or push bar. Something like this is what you need. I modified it with angle iron in the middle and put a small angle iron on the bottom where there wasnt anything there.

Yes that is what I'm looking for but in chrome. My dad and I found that there was a gap a couple thousandths in between the oil pump and main seal. Also my truck was sitting for 6 months and we thought maybe the oil cooler was plugged up.

If you can come to the cape I have a full front end brush guard that can act as an adjustable bull bar by unbolting the arms. Just needs some chrome paint (its sanded down).
