I've seen brush/grill guards in the front and back on other SUV's. Is it available for the Escalade? Who here has one?

Yes they are available and I have seen alot of Lades around by me that have them on it. It doesn't look bad. Check this link out there is a pic of one on one of the posts.

Pointless, waste of money, and looks terrible. I was just laughing with a buddy last night at an Escalade with one of these. Kills the look and I don't see the point...? :thepan:

Thanks for the link BB.

I guess it's not that popular here in NYC. I've seen one on every type of SUV (even the Navigator & Aviator), but not the the Escalade yet.

We have a dealership here that customizes Escalades before they sell them. They will remove the runningboards and put on nerf bars instead. I will take a pic of one the next time I see it. It really doesn't look bad, probaly because they add alot of extra mod's to the truck. It's not the look I would be going for, and I don't knock anyone elses taste. As long as the person who own's it likes it. Thats all that matters. :cool2:

I have a black brush guard on my black 02 EXT as well as black tail light guards. I like the looks. I'll try to post pictures later.

I've also got the brush guard and tail-light guards.
Main reason I have them is that the eco-freaks will smash your headlights and taillights hench the grills.
It offers a bit more protection than none at all.

I'll try and get some pictures up..
I think it looks rather nice.

Well, I finally got around to it. Here's the pics of the gaurds on my EXT. I personally think they look good on EXT's.

Looks good. :thumbsup: How much did it cost and did you do it yourself?

Damn. You got me thinking of buying an EXT instead. Are you going to add a black mesh grill or paint the grill black? :worship:

I just got the truck about a month ago. It had the guards and wheels on it when I bought it. The gaurds are kind of what set it off and stand out to me, so that's why I got it. I found the same brush guard on ebay brand new for $350 a while back.

I'm not a fan of the mesh grills. I did however think about getting one of the narrow, vertical slat chrom grills but I don't really have the money for it right now. I think it would look nicer since the whole truck is black and the door handles, wheels, and running boards are the only chrome on it. But for now I don't mind the factory grill.

The full brush quards don't look too bad but most I've seen are too much for my taste.
I've been looking at the Waag Frontrunner.

Not really a brush guard, but it offers some protection without taking away from the stock look of the vehicle.
Waiting to see the 2007 Lades though before getting a Waag Frontrunner.
Don't want to get more accessories until I know whether I'll be keeping my current ride.

If I were you I woudl take advantage of the bar and put some crazy lights on it, make it look bad ass. I dont like the escalade with accesoires on it or a front bar. It take away from the mean stance of front of the car. THe only car that looked good wit a front bar and a lot of accesories is the recent and old land cruiser, it makes the bland of toyota look mean. I still love your truck though, every black ext looks bad ass.
