Default Sweet Junkyard find

I found this brush guard today at the junkyard. They want 40 bucks for it. i measured it and it looks like it will fit my truck. Can anyone else that has one on there truck post some pictures of how its held to the truck? measurements would be great if you have them. It was sitting behind a police tahoe so im assuming it came off the tahoe

Did you measure the distance between the two bottom brackets? It looks like those bolt to the frame, while the top brackets bolt to the bumper or something.

I personally think it may be a little too wide at it's current state. You could always shorten it though.

If they match up, you'll probably be able to leave it as is. But if the brackets are wider than the frame, you're gonna have to cut some sections out of the center of the guard to make it fit.

if i mount it on the outside of the frame it will work. the guard itself is 64" wide which is how wide my truck is.
