Default Manik Brush Guard mounts

I just picked up a used Manik Brush Guard. It did not come with the brackets and I thought, duh, that I would have ajn easy time finding them. Boy was I wrong. Does anyone have these and if so could I get a pick of how the brackets look.. . if I can't find anything to buy I may hve to try to make them. Thanks

Can you post a pick? How about some think 2x2 angle? Measure and drill the holes. Had to do that to mine. Got the brush guard and tail light covers for 100$

That was what I was thinking of as well. I picked up the guard with PIAA lights for 100.. I have the guard in the back of my car and will be heading back North tomorrow. Will post some pics when I get there. Replacing my brake lines this weeked as well so it will be on the jackstands so it will be a good time to work on the guard. here is the part.. the foot peg is part of a motorcycle guard that he set it on

Nice looking guard! Looks straight. Worth the 100

The guy I bought it from just txt'd be and is going to try to ge the brackets off.. they were pretty rusted on but he said that he didn't have much time to work on them.. has the soaking now. Told him that if they come off I would pay to get them shipped to me... if not I will work on welding some up to get it to work

My Aries has 4 mounting points; two in the middle that bolt to the frame using the bumper bolts, and two that attach to the tow hooks.
I ended up pulling and replacing the top brackets from a salvage yard cause the Aries ones weren't the greatest. I do have some extra, if interested. I can get pics tonight.

The top pics are the brackets for the bottom .. Work great.
The last 2 are the top brackets that came with it. I wasn't a fan.
Found a couple 'L' shaped brackets at the man mall... Worked great. I'll get better pics when I change my bumper and grill out soon!


Notice the saw zawed notches in this grill just to get the brackets working properly.
