Default Luverne grille guards @ F-150

Hi folks, does anyone have a Luverne prowler max installed on their aluminum body style F-150? I'd like to see something besides the stock picture from Luverne as to how it looks. I'm kinda waivering between the 2" traditional Luverne grille guard and the prowler max.

Hah, thanks for the bump...I'd forgotten I even posted about this. I ended up just buying one. Are you interested in seeing what one looks like?

Yes--would love a pic. Haven't seen one other than stock photos. Would like to see it from a customer.

Was wondering if it was "too big" (some photos seemed out of balance to the truck).

Easy to put on? Any issues? Happy with your purchase? Any hints/tips?

Thanks!

Here are some pics. So, it is kinda 'too big'. After I leveled the truck and upsized the wheels, the truck looked very different than now. It looked like I was running 35's with a lift. The grille is so big, it takes away some of the 'height' that I added. I think the grille guard makes the truck look longer, and it focuses attention on it. I think if you didn't have beefy nerf bars and bigger wheels/tires, it would be very overpowering.

With that said, I like it a lot and have no plans to switch. I've had complete confidence out in the sticks that my front end is protected. I mountain bike in northern MN and the roads are a dead deer wasteland at times. So ya, in a nutshell, I love the security, and like the looks enough to keep it. Judge for yourself though.

Oh yeah, you did ask that too. Sorry. Here's a video I watched before the install. It went easy enough. The thing weighs like 110 lbs, so I had my daughter put the bolts through while I held it in place lining up the holes from the mounts to the grille guard. Eh, I suppose the hardest part was getting the rubber boots around the factory tow hooks off.
