Lippert Components, Inc. (Lippert™) and Fontaine Modification unveiled the jointly developed LUVERNE® two-inch Tubular Grille Guard for Chevrolet® Silverado® 4500 HD, 5500 HD, and 6500 HD Chassis Cabs.
As per a press release, the two-inch tubular grille guard is constructed with a heavy-duty and convenient tilt-down design that enhances front-end protection and improves the truck’s efficiency.
“The new grille guard offers customers three important benefits: strength, functionality, and aesthetics,” said Don Philyaw, Fontaine Modification Vice President of Business Development.
“It’s a heavy-duty grille guard made to stand up to tough applications. When the truck needs service, the guard easily tilts out of the way to allow unimpeded access to the engine bay. And, finally, because it was designed specifically for the Chevrolet Silverado Chassis Cab lineup, it integrated seamlessly with the truck’s overall appearance.”
To make the vehicle maintenance as efficient as possible, the grille guard has tilting brackets that permit the guard to fold down when needed to allow technicians to do under-hood tasks without taking off the guard.
The tubular grille guard’s design closely resembles the Silverado Chassis Cabs profile. The structure accentuates the hood nameplate and the grille logo when viewed from the front.
“I am extremely excited for our new two-inch tubular grille guard to launch as it will be a first for the medium-duty truck market,” said Jeff Perez, Lippert’s Director of Business Development.
“Not only will it offer superior front-end protection, but it also allows for simple access under the hood of the truck. By taking our existing innovation with Class 8 designed guards, we feel that we now have a game-changer in the Medium Duty Market.”
