    Another Grill Guard - 2320

    I have damaged the black mesh on my 2320 enough so I decided to follow several of your leads and make a grill guard. I need to finish the attachments and paint it up then will post a final picture

    Ditto. Looks nice, well done.

    Did you weld the angle, to the OEM guard? Gives me ideas about doing a removable setup, similar to the removable radiator screen.

    Thanks guys. SRG I am working on making it removable vs. welding it to the guard. The side vertical plates of the OEM guard prevent a through bolt on the bottom portion. I am working on tapping a hole for a 5/16 bolt that I can screw from the inside into the vertical plate. Not a lot of room but I think it will work. I have zero experience with tapping a hole so I am learning. The middle horizontal bar of the OEM prevents a full rotation of the tap handle so I am figuring that out. I really don’t want to weld it on. One way or another I will attach it

    Instead of a bolt, use a large countersunk screw... That will negate the interference between the frame and the added bolt head.... and it is still removeable....

    If you can put one bolt on either side up high and another bolt on either side, closer to the middle cross bar of the OEM guard, that grill would be rock solid, and wouldn't go anywhere. EDIT; Or how about drilling down, where the OEM grill guard is bent outward?
    Just drill all the way through, dont mess with tapping. If you tap it, then you have to have the right length bolts so everything tightens up right, or you will have to stack it out with washers to take up the extra length, if the bolts are too long. Plus those threads could get stripped over time, and then you're back at square one.
    I see that it pivots now. How much space do you have between both pieces, where it pivots?

    You might even be able to get away with using universal clevis pins and have the setup be quick detach.
    Something similar to these....
