Where can I get a brush guard for my incoming D110?

Just as the title states... I have a 1991 D110 coming in this month and am eager to start grabbing some parts for the slight restoration I plan on doing! This and a spare wheel carrier are first on the list!

Looking for a brush guard that looks like this, with no winch or anything like that:

It looks like they are NLA. You'll need to find one second-hand, go aftermarket, or opt for the new plastic style. For aftermarket I think Safari Gard is good, although their website seems to be down. I've heard ARB are rubbish, but don't quote me on that.

Those are pretty much all show and no go as far as protection. If you want something sturdy I would do a bit of research.

The first pic is a Simbars unit (mounts around the front of the bumper) and is slightly more sufficient than the later two (oem bolt on top of the bumper).

I caused $2000 damage with one to the back of a subi once that didn't even mark up my powdercoat ;-) ugh.

Is there something that looks similar that has some protection? Where can I get something similar? Are the Simbars units still being made? I don't need anything heavy duty.

Apparently the front runner is not currently available.

These brush bars are all hat and no cattle...
The slightest bump on the upper corner they curl into the fender. You'd be better off without it.

No debate there. Straight on, the factory bumper is only as strong as the horns it's held on by. Square it's fair, but off slightly and it folds like a bad hand. Anything attached to it mirrors it's fate.

But shrubs are no match as it IS a "brush bar," not a "bull bar." ;-) I simply prefer the oem look of the Simbars, or other factory junk, to the undebatable King of forward protection, ARB.

First pic is what I pulled. Second is me now with the Simbars brush bar. There was one recently for sale in Nevada on this forum. I'll check if it actually sold.

I have a couple originals as the OP posted, but need PC'd (currently stripped and ready for same). However, as stated above- they are cosmetic only and if a 'knock' is encountered, they will do much more harm than without...

Camel Trophy brush bars are similar to the Genuine brush-bar style and don't rest near the body. Rovers North part number rna011

Rockware is a great bumper to consider. They tend to hold value and don't die.

I've seen a few, even around here in Napa. Was on my truck when I bought it and was a "Special Operations" vehicle from the factory.
