HD 500 Series

Set-Forward Axle | Heavy Duty


HD 500 Series guards are the set-forward axle equivalent to the 400 series and are the newest product offering from Ex-Guard®. HD 500 guards were added to our product offering to satisfy the demand for a strong guard that was easy-to-use for the classic style of trucks.

This Heavy Duty Series is constructed with 8 gauge high-tensile steel, styled to fit the new model trucks and coated with the proprietary 1/8" Corrosion Resistant PVC coating. The perfect combination of strength and ease-of-use makes this a new fleet favorite for set-forward truck owners.

Ex-Guard Grille Guards work in conjunction with all major Collision Mitigation Systems, including Bendix Wingman Fusion, Meritor Wabco, and Detroit Assurance. Available coverage for the HD 500 series include the 25 and 95 Designs. These two options offer set-forward axle truck drivers mid-range and full Heavy Duty front-end protection.
