I’ve always wondered who manufactures these so called “brush guards”? Doesn’t appear to be a lot of hole drilling going on in the above example...which I whole heartedly approve. Would a better terminology be “brush“ or “parking lot ornaments“? Don’t kill the messenger, I like the style and it certainly propels original mystique of Grocery Getter (my ride since birth) to ESTATE WAGON. Then again, if occasionally traveling off-road in West Texas ranch land it might come in handy…especially when encountering a pissed-off Jackalope!
Just kidding guys…I like the style of all Land Cruisers…especially the style of one-of-a-kind OWNERSHIP! Here’s to all individual uses and styles.
P.S….appears those FJ’s above have excellent taste in lodging accommodations.

The term you are looking for is 'damage multiplier'. When you hit something with this 'brush guard' doo-dad, it bends back and takes out the grille, hood, and headlights. A simple accident becomes an expensive repair.

The FJ62 bumper is taller than the FJ60 bumper. So a brush guard that sandwiches the top and bottom of the bumper will need (thicker) shims. But that is easier to do than going the other way. But it is hard to tell from you picture how that guard actually mounts to the land cruiser.

Mine came with an old Warn brush guard and a winch that looks like the one in the photo.
It bolted into the factory holes, zero modifications.
When I removed it I just went back with the chrome bumper bolts.
Mines a 60.
