      I am in the market for a 2004 Ford Explorer Grill Guard. I have been searching and searching craigslist and other types of markets and coming up short with finding a cheap alternative to buying a new one. If you don't care for yours anymore or simply want to sell yours please feel free to get a hold of me.

      I'm in the same boat. At this point I may have to either drop about $250 (the cheapest ove seen) on a new full brush guard, or Paypal someone if an add pops up somewhere for a used one. There's cheap bull bars on eBay, however I'll probably hold off for a full guard. One question I have is if the brush guard mounts into the tow hook mounting holes, then can I not have tow hooks unless I fab something to have both?

      occasionally I see them on craigslist. They are usually gone in about a day though.

      Last one I saw was $50.

      Yeah there was one that had a set of taillight guards with it for $50, but it was about 100 miles out... I really regret not making the drive for it
      Those are good prices, do you or anybody you know have this specific one?

      I don't, but I was going to order the bull bar for my Mountaineer from them, it's only $99 plus shipping.

      Are those the ones on EBay? I've seen them and they are so cheap that I'm considering them
      So do the 4th gen full on brush guards still fit our 3rd gens? I know the mounts are the same, but I feel like the headlight guard areas may not look that good with our different front end

      I am not sure if they are the same ones as on ebay..

      I think the mounting is different on the 2006-2010 than it is on the 2002-2005, so they aren't interchangeable.
