well I have about the crappiest brackets for my bull bar from ebay... and it does shake but it holds up ok. now I know the full brush guards have a mounting point down by the frame and also a supporting bracket right above the bumper. If you are feeling creative I say go for it.

the main problem you would run in to would be if the shape itself fits, durangos new and old have way different shapes than a blazer, it probably wouldnt look good. somethin for a ranger or explorer might work because theyre closer is size and shape... good luck and i hope for your sake u have good fabrication skills lol

i got my guard off a cherokee sport. it was bumper mounted to the cherokee at the yard.
some angle grinding/cutting and then some 1/4" steel angles to the frame and taa daa.
holds up just fine. mind you i am a mall crawler though.
