Added a grille guard to my 2015 DX3

So I have been looking for and found a grille guard that I now have installed on my DX3 - you do have to relocate the fog lights . I still have to do that but I have a plan and will post another picture after I get them installed . I am going to add a couple driving lights in place of the dogs for now as I think additional road lighting would be nice at night. This is a product from ex guard if anyone wishes to source one of their own .Click image for larger version

Looks good! Iíd like something like that too just in case of deer, gremlins crossing the highway at night, honda civics or whatever. Though Iím concerned it would put me over the 40í LOA and precluded us from some camp spots.

I have never had anyone measure my coach when I pulled into a campground ( so Iím not concerned ) and no not ďMadmaxĒ - however I do not want to be stranded somewhere after hitting a deer waiting for parts for weeks ( thatís my thought process)

I understand completely, as I did when I made my feeble attempt at humor.
I deal with looking for deer everyday and have had my own issues twice. Not fun trying to get things fixed, for sure.

I had mine installed in 2017. I had to order light clamp/brackets for the fog lights. Works great. Click image for larger version

The "totally tubular" style isn't listed for mine. The only one for an M2-112 is this one:

Do the bumper guards fold down or how does one open the hood with one of those on?

So I can assure you my chassis is the same find a dealer for ex guard and they will hook u up! Yes there is a hinge and the guard tilts forward prior to tilting the hood.

I had Hills Truck Sales in Elkhart get the brackets for the grill when they installed it. Call them at 574-2623441. They are the supplier for the trucks for Dynamax.
