Evotech

But I have to mention that the welds on the upper tabs on my first lower guard failed--so keep an eye on them.

Yup, I have Evotechs on mine, they work great and easy to install, they come as 2, one for the lower rad, one for the upper, I have both.

Fyi: the Evotech, or any screen that tight is going to reduce cooling air flow 50%. May not matter, but it's going to take longer to cool down after sitting in traffic.

It doesn't look like it will, but aero is complex. I have to increase the size of any cooling system opening 50% with any louvers, sometimes 80% with screens similar to the Evotech.

I've been running on a lot of gravel roads without problems. Have to pull hair and Amish buggy droppings out of my radiator, but no damage. I might install one for the colder seasons, but only on the lower rad.
