Want drawing of VF-400 series front brush guard

Post by Ken J »

Hi All:

Can anyone lay out some newspaper on the floor and make a full-size trace of a VF-400 series front brush guard so I can fabricate one? I'd buy one if available, but I think the shipping'll be more than the steel material to make one.

Thanks for any help!

Well,

The good news is that it is exactly the same as the VC one, except the mounting holes are drilled in the lower edge of the VC gaurd and the side of the VF one (to allow for the chassis rails being further apart)

I have a VF gaurd too that I'm going to use on the WD21, but it's buried at the minute, well and truly, and hundreds of miles away.

I do remember that some dealers had a pile of VC or VF guards, so check with VPW and the usual Dodge suspects before you start buying steel bar.

OK, I almost called VPW about that, but thought I'd wait to see what wa said.

Thanks very much!

IIRC, it was Pueblo Auto Parts that had the NOS VC/VF brushguards - who bought up their Dodge stuff at the auction??

Maybe John Bizal at Midwest Mil would know.

VPW sold 'em all a while ago- none in stock.
