    -or go to ebay and look up "explorer sport police guard"

    (it is a mis-represented item)

    copy and past that link to your address bar. the image is of a ford explorer sport trac with a guard on it that i can not find. it says that guard is for sell but the additional photos differ from the one on the actual sport trac. i emailed the sellers, and they replied with a "you are correct" the actual item that is being sold is not the same one as the one on the actual vehicle. this is frustrating because i want the one like the one on the actual vehicle. has anyone seen that guard? if so PLEASE respond.

    I'm guessing yes, but they show no pics or anything.

    Even if he removes the light guards, it wouldn't look the same, as it will have the surrounding tube.

    it's a modular grille/brush guard.
    the headlight cages are removable.

    and by headlight cages, that includes the larger diameter tube surrounding the headlights.

    Hence the name "modular"

    check page 5 of their catalog
    http://ariesautomotive.com/Flip_Brochures/2011-Catalog/Default.html

    and when I said light guard, I meant the whole piece that covers and surrounds the headlight.
    the outer tube is part of the light guard, not just the smaller intermediate tubes.

    actually the one posted in the pic, has the cross bar welded on top of the light guards so I would have to say that one does not have the removalable light guards.

    But majority of the brush guards are 3 piece units. And your inquire to that specific brush guard has nothing to do with police or law enforcement, it is just a accessorized add on that they equip them with.

    Yeah the only removable parts would be the light guards, these cross bars only:

    I know it's not the same grille, but it was a pic that I already had saved (borrowed from someone in this site, hope he doesn't mind)
