Heavy Duty Brush Guards for Chevy Trucks
Adding one of these upgrades to your vehicle can be a huge benefit. It’s just a matter of finding the right guard for your needs and specific pickup model. Hopefully we can help you do that today!

Installing upgrades on pickup trucks is something Ultimate Rides does on a daily basis. That’s because we’re an auto dealer that specializes in custom lifted vehicles, with our own shop and crew of technicians to make these upgrades happen. In our experience, one of the more useful things you can add to your pickup is a guard for your grille. The front end of your vehicle sees a lot of action, no matter what you do. A guard will offer some much-needed protection. One of these accessories could be the difference between a totaled vehicle or some minor dings. At the same time, many of the products offer useful benefits like the ability to install a towing winch or some LED lighting. Check out our list below to find our favorite picks for grille guards, and hopefully you’ll find the option that best suits your Silverado.

1. Westin Automotive 57-93955 Grille Guard/Push Bar with Winch Tray

Compatibility: 2019-2022 1500

The first option on our list comes from a company that you will see pop up here quite a bit. That’s because they’re without a doubt the most reliable manufacturer when it comes to grille guards. This product in particular was made for modern Silverado 1500 models and includes a winch tray that you can set up with a towing hook for maximum functionality. Not only does this guard look tough as nails, but it’ll also do an excellent job protecting the front of your truck. The major thing to be aware of with this guard is that the installation process can be quite difficult. You’ll actually need to remove the bumper in order to install it correctly, so we encourage most drivers to opt for professional installation this time around.

2. Westin 57-3995 Black HDX Grille Guard

Compatibility: 2019-2022 2500/3500

Up next, we have another option from Westin, this time for 2500 and 3500 models. Once again it is for the modern generation, and it features a tough and rugged design that should make Silverado drivers quite happy. One of the best aspects about this brush guard is that it all comes in one solid piece, requiring no assembly.

3. Westin 40-33955 Textured Black Sportsman X Grille Guard

Compatibility: 2019-2022 1500

Moving back to the 1500, this next guard from Westin offers a different style for you to think about on your truck. It’s a little sleeker than the HDX, and it does not feature a metal mesh center panel. You’ll still have the opportunity to install extra add-ons like a light bar, and the accessory was designed with great care to ensure maximum durability. These Westin grille guards are designed to last, and we are confident you’ll get lots of great use out of this one.

Compatibility: 2020-2022 2500/3500

Want to stick with Westin but try a different style? Take a look at this stainless steel guard for modern heavy duty Chevy models. The guard comes together in one piece like the other Westin products, and this one in particular lets you move away from the typical black color scheme you’d find on most grille guards. The front of your pickup will find plenty of protection with one of these heavy-duty grille guards. As always, you’ll find durable construction that will last a long time.

5. Black Horse Modular Rugged Heavy-Duty Black Grille Guard

Compatibility: 2014-2018 1500, 2019-2021 1500 LD

As we briefly move away from Westin, this guard from Black Horse serves as another reliable option to consider, and you could even save a little bit of money with it. While we still wouldn’t exactly call this guard “cheap,” does anybody really want such an important piece of their vehicle to be considered cheap? We certainly don’t! It fits on a wide range of Chevy trucks, and offers stunning style and defense for the front of your vehicle. As long as you’re okay with assembling the guard yourself, or you plan on hiring someone to install it for you, this is a great pick for the 1500.

6. LUVERNE 310713-321512 Prowler Max Custom Stainless Steel Truck Grille Guard

Compatibility: 2015-2019 2500/3500

Our next guard comes from manufacturer LUVERNE, and it’s another stainless steel grille guard to consider. The installation process, like most other accessories in this category, isn’t always easy to install. However, once you have it fully on your vehicle, you’ll be able to appreciate its style, along with the great defense it offers your front end. It is resistant to corrosion, won’t block your Chevy logo, and features an integrated step at the bottom. We are big fans of this guard and recommend it as a possible alternative to Westin.

8. Westin 57-3785 Black HDX Grille Guard

Compatibility: 2015-2019 2500/3500

Moving back to black grille guards, this accessory will fit on the last generation of 2500 and 3500 models. You’ve seen the HDX design before, but the main difference here is that the guard is designed slightly differently to suit some changes made between generations. All the things we love about the HDX are still present, and you’ll be able to experience it all. Right now, the accessory is even available at a great price. The Westin HDX is one of the better choices available to drivers, so it’s just a matter of deciding if it’s worth it for you and finding the right fit.

9. Ranch Hand GGC08HBL1 Legend Grille Guard

Compatibility: 2007-2013 1500 (No Parking Sensors or Classic Edition)

Moving back a little further in time, it’s absolutely possible you could still be driving a Silverado from 2007 through 2013 in great condition, worth upgrading with this awesome black grille guard from Ranch Hand. It’s got that heavy-duty look and feel that many drivers are after, and thankfully is pretty simple to install, though you may need an extra person to help you out. While this is the only Ranch Hand option on our list, they are a strong choice for brush guards. Be sure to note, however, that it won’t work on models that feature front parking sensors.

10. Westin 57-3875 Black HDX Grille Guard

Compatibility: 2016-2018 1500, 2019 1500 LD

Our last recommendation on these accessories comes once again from Westin, and it is yet another HDX. However, it fits on a different range of model years than previous HDX options on our list, and that includes fitting the 2019 1500 LD. By now you should know exactly what to expect from Westin products, and that is top-tier quality. The HDX guard provides both utility and off-road style to your Chevy pickup.
