How does the RIGGUARD attach to the truck? - In most cases the RIGGUARD will have brackets that use the tow hook holes on your semi truck. If you do not have tow holes the guard is mounted to the bumper and frame using the existing bumper holes. In some cases slight modification is necessary for installation

How long will it take to receive my RIGGUARD? - Most guards are built to order and will have a lead time from 2-4 weeks depending on order quantity, lead times increase through the fall season.
What are the RIGGUARDS built out of? - We offer two different materials: 2" scheduled 40 304 Stainless Steel, or a 2" Scheduled 40 RIG PRO aluminum.
