We have had a good experience with the guards. A large deer still will do a little damage to the hood, but it is way less than without. A deer hit without the XG-125 is about $12,000.00, to repair this one was $1,400.00. We do run some of the tall guards and deer do zero damage to the hood. Overall, they have been much less to maintain. The purchase cost was slightly more but they are much tougher. They do well against concrete also and have saved the front end of the truck.
