    Subaru wrx/sti grill guards opinions yes or no?

    I was thinking about how the Subaru community would react to installing grill guards on their cars... I personally think it would look really good as long as it flows with the lines of the front end and it isn't overly bulky... This would also protect front mount intercoolers as well as offer more protection in car wrecks also for people who do rally x compitition... You could also mount rally lights on the front for a little more aggressive look too! So what would you guys think?

    Grill guard like a brush guard? if so this is an option.

    I've seen those but I was talking about creating my own that protects most of the front end of the car... Kind of like on jeeps and other off road rigs but not as bulky as those ones...

    Google "Gorilla Offroad" or look for them on DirtyImpreza.com, they have something that might be what you're after.

    As opposed to that weak-ass Rally Innovations crap.

    Or, there is the custom-custom route that I went on my '11 before. Replaced the crash beam. Just the skeleton:

    Plated and coated:

    Installed and dirty:

    Yeah those are closer to what I was thinking about building, but I'd like them to follow more of the lines of the front end plus offer coverage for the whole front of the car including the headlights...

    At that point, with the extra weight you'd be adding, might as well be going with a setup like I had, or like this:

    Unless just thinking a tube frame outside the skin, with some thin bars across, kind of like this, but more expansive:

    A functional bar like you're talking about is going to be so bulky lol, especially to cover the ntire front end and heasdlights.

    Those are some hardcore bars greg. wow!

    My thoughts exactly.

    You talking about the one that was on my car? It was pretty solid, but not ridiculously beefy. 1.25" tube for the top horizontal and 1" for all the rest. But beefy enough that it just got a little ding when it hit first in a dried up creek, went from 30 to 0mph pretty quick. Oh, and thanks!
