New to forum
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

Hey, first off welcome to the forum!! Second, I have not blown the seal for my tranny, but I do have a chrome brush guard I am trying to sell. I am from MN. If interested email me at

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).

Thanks for the offer but I'm going to hold off for now
