What It Is and What It Does: The Aries Off Road Grille Guard is designed to protect a vehicle’s front end from damage. It guards the entire front end, including the headlights.

Aries Grille Guard Overview

Having a grille guard on your Toyota Tacoma will help protect your truck in the event of an accident.

Who It’s For:The Aries Off Road Grille Guard can be custom-fit for any pickup truck or SUV. Because it is a permanent enhancement and protects the vehicle in the event of an accident, this product is best suited for relatively new vehicles and/or vehicles that do a lot of off-roading. The more a truck or SUV is worth, the more its value is worth protecting from animal strikes, other cars, etc.

There’s also the fact that grille guards generally look pretty awesome, so this is a great add-on for someone who wants to personalize their truck.

Key Features:

  • The grille guard safeguards a truck or SUV’s front end from animal strikes, bumps from street parking, not to mention off-road obstacles like tree branches
