What do you use the truck for? I ran a cattle guard for 8 years when it was a farm truck. Worked well for that, also hada semi tire hit and it did provide some protection.

 

I removed the guard last year and my mileage is better. I also think they look funny on modern trucks, not as cool as they used to be. Maybe thats just me getting old.

i think mine used to be a farm truck and i took the regular bed off of it and put a service body on it these regular cabs are so very hard to find at least the good ones anyway

I vote remove, but that's just because I'm not generally for exterior add ons except for some nice wheels and a deflector for the hood.

With  a service  body on it, just leave it.  If you put a regular box on the truck then remove it.

I would second the service body. If your using it as a service truck you may need it some time. Can be handy in the field. I used my service truck bumper all the time, but that tends to happen when working on equipment.
