Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey, everybody, I'm Justin, with AmericanMuscle.com and this is my detailed review of the Barricade Brush Guard in gloss black, available for your 2009 to 2014 F-150, excluding all Raptors. Now, in this review, guys, I'm going to walk you through a few basic things you can expect with this Barricade Brush Guard. Basically, what you're looking at as far as construction, what it's going to offer as far as protection and functionality, and then finally, what it takes to get this beast installed onto your F-150. Now, as far as the install, I'm going to five this one a two out of three wrenches on my overall scale of difficulty and here's why: now, there's no cutting, there's no permanent modification or really, anything out of the ordinary, however, it is a little big, it's a little heavy, and it can be tough to muscle around by yourself, or even with a friend, so we'll have a little bit more detail coming up on that later on. Brush guards are one of those parts that are going to appeal to truck owners for a few different reasons. Maybe you want to protect the front end, or maybe you just want a tough appearance for the front end, or maybe you just want both. Now, a brush guard is ultimately going to offer a ton of protection for the front of your truck from the bumper and grill area to the headlight area here, of course, and even the hood to a small extent thanks to that top bar. Now, this is going to be one of the most affordable options here on the site, and you even are getting some additional mounting points for auxiliary lighting. As far as functionality, well, we already hit this one. Right, guys? This is going to be the most hardcore way to protect the front end of your truck from whatever might get in your way, whether it's obstacles or trees off the road on the trails, or maybe even a wayward shopping cart in a parking lot, or maybe some other obstacles you might encounter on the road. And ultimately, these are going to offer far more protection than some other options on the site, such as bull bars. This thing really does bulletproof the front end of your F-150, thanks largely to the one-and-a-half-inch steel tubing you're going to find throughout the majority of this product here, while you're also getting some very heavy gauge steel supports, both horizontal and vertical here. Now, this thing is going to take a lot of abuse and that's one of the nice things about running a brush guard. I really do enjoy the protection for the headlight area over here as well, thanks to the smaller gauge steel tubing. This stuff is removable here. You'll find some hardware built into the Barricade option. You can totally unbolt the smaller section here, just to mix up the look, give you a different option, whatever. I think this thing is pretty burly. It does offer a lot of protection but if this isn't enough for you, Barricade even offers a step further with their Xtreme Heavy Duty Brush Guard. It's going to take the protection up a notch, however, it will cost you a little bit more in the process. Something else I really do enjoy about the Barricade Brush Guard options is just how well they fit the front of the truck, and it's something I noticed when reviewing their 15 and up option as well. When installed, you're really going to notice how well this thing just hugs the front end. It doesn't stick out like a sore thumb and there's really not a ton of dead space between the actual Brush Guard and the front of the truck. Piggybacking on that great fit, Barricade also does a great option with following some of the body lines here on the '09 to '14 F-150s. More specifically, the headlight area here, which mimics the body lines on this particular truck very well and, in my opinion, just gives it a more custom-tailored or a more quality look. Now, in my experience, I've noticed other options for the same model truck don't really follow the lines as well, and therefore, they just look a little bit more out of place and maybe a little bit more generic. Taking that functionality a step further, you'll notice that Barricade includes two pre-drilled holes into the horizontal support here with their Brush Guard. They also include some rubber caps to cap them off, if you don't want to use them for that, and this is just begging for some auxiliary lighting, right? Whether it be a spotlight, foglight, you could even toss a lightbar up here, whatever the case, it's a great option and the best part is it saves you from drilling into your truck or bumper. Now, even though most people would probably argue that a brush guard like this is a functional item first, and I would tend to agree with that, there is a group of owners out there that enjoy a brush guard simply on looks or appearance alone, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Adding a brush guard like this will certainly toughen up the front end of the truck, add a more aggressive appearance, and I think the gloss black powder coat will certainly help in that regard. However, if you're not a big fan of the black, Barricade does offer the same exact option but in a polished finish that will add a little bit more flash or a little bit more bling that you can pick up here on the site for a few bucks more. On the topic of price, the Barricade option is very attractive and very affordable, landing you right around the $300 price point, which is by far and away your most affordable option currently, here on the site. Switching gears, let's talk about install, and as I mentioned at the very top of this video, the bright side is there's no cutting, there's no drilling, there's no permanent modification required whatsoever. However, this sucker is heavy, and therefore, I'm going to give it two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, solely based on the size and weight of this thing alone. So basically, if you have an extra set of hands, they're definitely going to make this install a lot easier for you. The Barricade option will mount to your F-150 utilizing the space previously occupied by your front tow hooks, so just prepared to lose those. And I do want to point out, guys, that one of the nice things about this particular product from Barricade is that you do have a little bit of wiggle room to slide the front brush guard out, just to give you a little bit more room to operate or open the hood. So, in a nutshell, guys, you're only really looking at a basic socket set to help you get this thing in place, along with an extra set of hands, which will certainly help you muscle this thing around as it can be a little heavy. Overall, again, a soft two out of three wrenches on my difficulty meter. There's nothing crazy here, it is just a little heavy, and maybe a couple of hours from start to finish. So if you like the idea of a Brush Guard from a functionality standpoint, or if you just like how it looks on your truck, you're definitely going to want to check out the black option here from Barricade. It's built very well, it fits great, and the price is right. So that's my review of the Barricade Black Brush Guard option, which you can find right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Aggressive Off-Road Styling. Give your F-150 that aggressive off-road appearance while providing practical protection from brush and other hazards with a Barricade Off-Road Brush Guard.

Heavy Duty Construction. Manufactured from heavy duty 1.5" diameter (0.12" wall thickness) steel tubing, this Barricade Off-Road Brush Guard is completed in a gloss black powder coat finish for aggressive good looks and long lasting corrosion resistance.

Easy, Bolt-on Installation. The Barricade Brush Guard is engineered to be a direct bolt-on upgrade using just basic hand tools. There is no drilling required for a clean straight forward installation. All hardware is included for installation making it an easy process. F-150s that are not equipped with tow hooks will require some cutting to the factory plastic lower bumper cover.

Application. The Barricade Off-Road Brush Guard is designed to fit all 2009-2014 Ford F-150s, excluding the SVT Raptor models.

Ask a Question

If the brush guard moves forward for opening the hood, what prevents it from rattling when driving down bumpy roads?

MikeF

  • This Barricade brush guard, after it is installed correctly, is held in the up position by a security pin, and is released to gain access to the hood by releasing the security pin. That security pin snaps back into the locked position once the guard is brought back up into its normal position.

can a winch be attach to this brush guard

sean

  • Hello, unfortunately the Barricade Brush Guard - Gloss Black (09-14 All, Excluding Raptor) does not have a Winch Mount, therefore you wouldn't be able to mount a winch to it. You would have to be looking at something like the Westin Sportsman Winch Mount Brush Guard - Black (09-14) http://www.americanmuscle.com/westin-sportsman-winchmount-black-0914.html any type of Brush Guard that does have a winch mount like that you can install a winch on.

does the grille guard tilt forward to open the hood? and can you keep the factory installed tow hooks on after install or do they have to stay off?

  • I was unable to keep my towhooks, but there might be a way to manage that. Also, It does slide forward to allow room to open the hood.

    Barricade Brush guard on a 2014 F150

    Installed by myself in three hours. A couple tricks to remember. When taking off your tow hooks (can't use with this guard) take the Aft bolt out 1st. When installing the guard, lay it face down on cardboard in front of the truck and attach the aft lower mount bolt on each side 1st then you can raise it yourself. Only issue was one of the bracket holes needed to be drilled a little larger, but no big deal. A on everything. Thanks AM!

    Good product

    So the brush gaurd looks great on my truck but their were issues installing it. It took me 3 hours to get it installed properly and I am a mechanic. The issues came with the mountng brackets that allow the gaurd to tilt forward. Out of the box i set them all up on my truck and could not tilt the gaurd enough to open my hood. So I had to bend the brackets down to get more clearance, this still was not enough. After bending i had to bore out the slots on the brackets almost half an inch to gain the clearance to open my hood. After all was done the gaurd looks great but you most likely will need to modify the brackets so you can open and close your hood.

    I got the brush guard. Shipping was a pain. Dealing with ups and the tsu but got here. Very easy install. I left all the protection padding on until we got it installed as we pulled the padding off there was damage to the top bar. Looks like it had been dropped before they put the padding on. Other than that it's nice ad on.

    Real nice product.

    The Barricade Brush Guard is a great product. I was able to install it myself even though I am no mechanic, however the only complaint I have is the instructions could have been somewhat a little clearer. It looks great on my 2014 F-150 and I am getting some envious looks from guys in trucks that do not have a guard. I can definitely recommend this product and I am so glad I bought it.

    Very Nice Brush Guard

    Came quickly and packed well enough for freight delivery. It seems well constructed and installed relatively easily by following the instructions closely. Remember to keep all the bolts loose until the end to make sure you can get everything to line up. Looks fantastic on the truck, has a very tight profile and the quick releases mean it is easy to fold forward to open the hood. Haven't hit anything yet, but otherwise is just as advertised...would definitely recommend.

    Great brush guard. Was a pain in the butt to install. Instructions are a little vague. Ended up having to pay someone to put it in. So if you don't have power tools and a bit to slot some of the brackets expect to pay someone to put it in. Clearance when opening and closing hood is a little tight but it's workable. Over all it's a really good buy.

    2014 f150 fx4

    I purchased this brush guard for my 2014 f150 fx4. It has its pros and cons like everything. I don't particularly like that it has to be slid back and forward when opening and closing the hood with the locking handles. It wasn't specified in the item description. It has 2 holes on the middle bar for auxiliary lighting. It should come with more options on light mounting. It's for 2 round lights which is fine if that's what you like, but I have a 24" light bar that I had to drill holes for. Not a big deal but would be better with more options. Over all it's well made, easy to install, and looks great on my truck and I'm happy I purchased it. I give it a 4 star rating.

    Brush guard

    This was a great deal on a very good product. This is a sturdy brush guard and after 2 deer collisions within 2 months (the latest resulted in $7000 to my truck) I decided it was time to take some damage control measures. The drawings for installation were a little hard to follow, about 1.5 hours for drivers side and less than 30 minutes for passenger side. After doing the drivers side first, for passenger side was a given. I love the quick release forward tilt to allow opening the hood.

    Great Brush Guard for the price.

    I bought this on sale for my wife's truck. For $294 I couldnt pass it up. The install was straight forward and easy. Its a one person job. The brush guard easily tilts to allow the hood to raise. It also clears the pocket style fender flares with no problem. The only downside is you cannot reuse the factory tow hooks.

    After killing 2 deer with my wife's Lexus I bought this grille guard and will drive only this truck in the evenings and at night during the fall season! Installed by myself in less than 3 hours. Directions were a little hazy but the pictures helped a lot!! I'm a passive do it yourself guy and found this install to be right up my alley! Basic tools are needed, socket wrenches, open end/box end wrenches, screwdrivers etc. A helper would be handy but not necessary. Totally satisfied!
