Ex-Guard's History

When our Head of Engineering designed and manufactured his first front-end guard in 2005, it was an aluminum “moose bumper,” as most know them. The Excel moose bumper was strong but not aerodynamic, and heavy. While this product was very functional, it was painfully clear to us that the industry needed a solution that had the same strength but much less bulk and greater ease-of-use. So, our team created the original XG-125 bumper and radiator protection guard for set-back axle trucks in

Our team works with OEMs, dealers and fleet partners to provide the best vehicle protection solution on the market. Ex-Guard’s continues to help reduce downtime, maintenance costs, and lost revenue for our customers. Our solutions help keep your drivers on the road and keep you trucking!
