2004 front brush bar

Does anyone know where I might get a simple front brush bar for my 2004 Interstate to protect the fragile front fiberglass chin. I just want a simple one that fits low on the front.
Any help is most appreciated thanks in advance!

Here's one but says only fits stock front end so may require some cutting of the AS cover to mount it. Shows it on a Dodge but say fits 2007-2013. May or may not fit yours.


Glass half full or half empty to an engineer is simply a glass that was over designed.

PM me for sale info on my 2011. SOLD!

Hi, Jet, and welcome to Air Forums.

The product linked above... I could be wrong but I don't think it's going to fit well. Your question is a good one, but I've never come across any such product that was made for our vintage of Sprinter. In the past year or so, I've gone trolling for a number of doo-dads because some of the aftermarket sellers warned me that all products for T1Ns would be discontinued as soon as we were 10 years past their most recent manufacturing date, which is essentially right now (2016, as the last new T1N rolled out in 2006). They had a "get it while you can" advisory for a number of products some of which were already sold out by the time I made inquiries (e.g., don't even think about trying to find those aftermarket sun visor swivels).

Anyway, in my searches, I never saw anything like what you are looking for, at least not offered by the usual suspects. As to whether some generic version would fit... that I don't know either. This probably isn't much help.

In the "Off Roader" world, those things are known as "damage multipliers!" Frequently, what would have normally been an "event" causing little damage, forces the brush bar gizmo into surrounding bodywork, very effectively multiplying the damage.

The only ones that will truly protect a vehicle are the super-heavy ones such as made by ARB, KAYMAR, and a handful of custom fabricators.

We had an ARB bull bar on the front of our '96 Toyota Land Cruiser during our Casita-pulling days. We hit a full grown elk at 65 MPH just south of Blanding, Utah. Lots of noise and elk stuff, but absolutely no damage to the 'Cruiser. Bad day for the elk.

Go to a metal (aluminum) fabrication shop and get a brush guard custom made. I've seen some really good work out there. Much better than factory.

I have purchased a few items from Euro Camper which I have found more than satisfactory.

I've used EuroCampers myself from time to time, but in the OP's case— a 2004 model on a Sprinter 2500 chassis— EuroCampers will be no help.
