It is a cheap/expensive piece of plastic.
I have one and it's only purpose is to look good short of that it's pointless.
I think the reason is, if they make a real Brush Guard, it will interfere with the airbags and safety system.
The car will fold up differently than they designed in a crash.
These guys make some nice looking Bars and they have to be a little more functional than the factory Brush Guard.
Any number of folks on the board will build you one?

We just picked up our new Forester but was surprised to see the cheap plastic "brush guard" basically just a thin plastic cover over the bumper. Does anyone know of an aftermarket company that makes a real metal brush guard for this thing. Afterall we live in the middle of deer country.
