Deep Guard

Deep Style Guards

Should I get a deep series guard?

Only if you own a Mack Anthem or a New Generation Cascadia. The Deep Style is not a universal fit, they were only made for models with larger bumpers.

Will it work with my Collision Mitigation System?

Ex-Guard Grille Guard designs are all compatible with collision mitigation systems, this is only guaranteed if you use the recommended Guards. Our team of Engineers carefully measured, tested, placed, calibrated our guards with in-house and third-party testing to determine the best guard for the Year, Make and Models of the specific vehicle listed in our catalog. From this testing, we have determined a list of compatible guards. 

What’s the difference between a deep series Guard and the standard guards?

Ex-Guard has guards in the 100 Series, 300 Series, and 400 Series that offer a universal fit, designed to fit a variety of set-back axle truck models. If you’re looking for a guard meant for The New Cascadia or Mack Anthem, then you need to stock up on the Deep Series. The Deep Series is specifically designed to complement trucks with larger bumpers, providing increased visibility for models with driving lights.

Will the deep style XG-D150 match the XG-150

Yes! Think of the deep style as if it were a different sized shoe, same look different dimensions. They both offer the coverage of the 50 designs, paired with the strength and accessibility features of the 100 series.

Yes! Think of the deep style as if it were a different sized shoe, same look different dimensions. They both offer the coverage of the 50 designs, paired with the strength and accessibility features of the 100 series. 

Why is the 300 Series Deep Style not available for Plastic Bumpers?

There are two bumper designs for the Mack Anthem, Plastic or Steel. The variation between these bumpers designs expands beyond the material, it also changes the dimensional placement of the Collision Mitigation Systems (CMS) such as Bendix Wingman Fusion, Meritor OnGuard, etc.

Ex-Guard Grille Guard designs are all compatible with collision mitigation systems, this is only guaranteed if you use the recommended Guards. Our team of Engineers carefully measured, tested, placed, calibrated our guards using in-house and third-party testing to determine the best guard for the Year, Make and Models of the specific vehicle listed in our catalog.

From this testing, we have determined that the 300 Series Deep Style does not complement the Collision Mitigation System (CMS) placement of the Mack Anthem models with plastic bumpers. However, they do complement the CMS placement on models with Steel Bumpers

Will there be a 300 Deep Style for Plastic Bumpers?

Simplicity. In order to make our process easy for our customers we have avoided making sub-modifications to our styles within our series. The introduction of styles is a way to expand our guards to the changes introduced with the next generation designs of trucks. Our research and development team remains ready to up-fit the latest models on the precipice of release. We know that when you invest in your truck, you want to protect it and to feel safe on the road.
